  4. I only had the opportunity to work with Ross for a few months before he moved on from HP. But even in that short time he became more than just a colleague. He was taken from us too soon and I will miss him.

  25. Monica and Katie,
    I have not seen you or Ross for a few years now, and I have never had the privilege of meeting Katie. Ross’ passing was a huge shock for me consequently. I cannot imagine the impact on your lives but it saddens me greatly. I can only offer my best wishes for the future and my sympathies as one who also lost their father at a young age.
    Life will get better,

  32. I had the opportunity to work summers in the early 1970’s with Ross at the City of Saskatoon Parks and Recreation Playgrounds. We spent many an evening cruising the streets of Saskatoon in his purple dodge duster. Although we lost touch, I will always remember his friendship and dry sense of humour. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss of a great guy.
