Ross R. McCuaig of Calgary ended his life journey on Wednesday, November 21, 2007 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s at the age of 77 years.
Ross attended the University of Toronto graduating in 1956 with a BASc in Mechanical Engineering. He worked for Polysar, Sarnia for twenty years. During those years he took courses offered by Waterloo University and Lambton College, then went on campus for three months to do some practical work. He graduated in 1974 with a Masters of Applied Science degree. In 1976 he moved to Calgary where he worked for Exchanger Sales and Le Grande Ind. building pressure vessels for the oil industry. Ross also worked for Dale Insurance when Petro Canada towers were being built. Ross enjoyed trips to Manitoulin Island more for the outdoors and companionship than the actual hunting.
Ross will be sadly missed by his wife Nancy, of fifty-one years; his son and daughter-in-law William and Linda, of Sarnia, ON; his son Robert, of Calgary; and granddaughters Andrea (Mike Rockwood) and Jennifer McCuaig, of Sarnia, ON.
Funeral Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Monday, November 26, 2007 at 2:30 p.m. It was Ross’ wish that he be returned to Guthrie, ON where he was raised; he will be interred in the family plot in Guthrie Cemetery.
