Ross was born and raised in Waterloo, where he met and married Gloria in 1979. They enjoyed spending their time together bowling in a league, going out to dinner and the movies and enjoyed travelling together to many southern destinations. They enjoyed spending time with family and friends playing cards, bonfires, beach parties, hockey games, family events and their annual new years eve party.
Together they raised two beautiful children Tamara and Brandon. Ross was a 2nd class stationary engineer at Chemtura where he worked for 30+ years. He enjoyed gardening, was an avid Blue Jays fan and Kitchener Rangers season ticket holder for numerous years; always cheering on his team. Ross enjoyed spending time at his cottage in Sauble Beach, touring around the neighborhood on his golf cart. He enjoyed bird watching and spent much of his time in his final years watching the birds at the feeders while at the cottage.
