    As colleagues (fellow officers) and friends who worked with Ross, we are saddened to hear that Ross has left us. Many of us were plebe SCO’s back in 2009 when he retired. Ross had a wealth of practical experience. He let us know what was important and what was not so important. When it came to people and relationships, well, that was supremely important. Ross’ priorities along with his brand of humor I will always remember.

  12. Dear Cory:
    I’m thinking of you with love. Working with you and Ross always put a smile on my face and I miss our “breaks” when we always had a solution to all the problems that crossed our paths. You two were an amazing pair… always there with a quick, sometimes clip but witty response and always supportive as a team mate. We were all fortunate to have Ross in our lives.

    Carla

  15. I thought of you today
    But that was nothing new.
    I thought about you yesterday
    And days before that too.
    I think of you in silence
    And often speak your name.
    All I have are memories
    And a picture in a frame.
    Your memory’s a keepsake
    From which I’ll never part.
    God has you in His arms
    I have you in my heart. xxx

    Dear Cory,
    I was so sorry to hear of Ross’s passing. The best memories I have of Ross were when we would have our spirited discussions about cars and racing at work. His knowledge of Diecast cars, and the ability to obtain the unusual and rare examples, was inspiring. At work, when I was assigned to the counter, it was always a relief to see that Ross was the Plans Examiner for us, as he was always willing to share his knowledge to help other people.
    He will be greatly missed.
    Take care Cory and family,
    Gord
