During his years on Vancouver Island, Ross’s membership in the Masonic Concord Lodge Number 79, the Robert Burns Club of Nanaimo, and the congregation of St. Columba Presbyterian Church, brought him the greatest of joy and many wonderful friendships that he held so dear.
A private service was held for Ross on Wednesday May 27th at Yates Funeral Chapel. His final resting place will be in his homeland of Scotland, at Ballengeich Cemetery, in Stirling.
