Ross grew up and attended school in Milk River, Alberta. His work took him to many locations throughout Alberta, finally settling in Kelowna, B.C. for 20 years as a compressor technician. His retirement brought him back to Milk River, where he resided in his family home and was reacquainted with old friends and family. In his retirement Ross enjoyed camping, golfing, travelling and tinkering with electronics, cars and old clocks. Ross treasured all family get-togethers and was especially excited about the birth of his great grandson. Ross was a very caring and loving man who will be missed by all who knew him.
