Ross with be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends. Predeceased by his father Ted (Edward) and brother Thomas.
Our dad loved with his whole heart and was a truly selfless man who taught each of us how to respect, love and honour those around us. He placed his trust in the Lord and Saviour. We know that he is alongside Him smiling down on us all, celebrating his home coming.
We would like to thank all the staff on the Critical Care ICU Unit at L.H.S.C – University Hospital, London for the amazing care that was provided to him. A special thank you to Pastor Allan Self of Bethel Baptist Church, who was right there at the end, to guide Ross on his journey home.
In keeping with Ross’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private memorial service will take place at DENNING’S OF STRATHROY, with a celebration of life at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences and donations may be made at www.strathroyfuneralhome.com.
The last thing written in Ross’s Devotional was: June 1/21 Psalm 12:5 “I trust in your unfailing love”.
