Condolence from Bill & Sue Haskett on December 6th, 2013 12:44 PM

It was our good fortune to have Ross and Jessie living next door when we were first married. We learned quickly that Ross knew how to do almost anything when it came to household projects and property maintenance, yet he also had the rare ability to wait until he was asked before he shared advice.

Our memories of Ross will be of a real “gentle”man; a man with the gift of patience, who never seemed to raise his voice. From those earlier times and after we moved on, this time to have Ross and Anne as neighbours, we knew family was everything to Ross and that he especially loved being a grandfather.

Your Dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather lived a very full life that you can all be proud of and left each of you with great memories to share whenever you think of him.
Bill and Sue
