ROSS, H. David - Born in Ottawa, Dad lived in Ottawa, Montreal, and latterly in Toronto and Port Hope. He died on October 12, 2021 at the age of 88.
He was predeceased by his parents, Donald and Constance Jean Ross and by his sister Beverly Guy, and is survived by his younger brother, Nick Ross.
Dad was a descendent of Ross settlers in the Margaree Valley of Cape Breton and McLaughlin UEL’s of St. John, New Brunswick. Dad was educated at Upper Canada College and at Trinity College at the University of Toronto. He was a 38 year veteran of Wood Gundy and CIBC Capital Markets from which he retired as a Director and Vice President in 1993.
On his retirement he said he would focus on his lifetime passions of faith, family and friends, which he did with alacrity! He was a very happy man, totally filled with the joy of living.
He leaves his best friend and love of his life for 62 years, his wife Catharine, and his adoring children; David (Liz), Sheila (Mustafa) and John (Caroline), his wonderful grandchildren Taylor (Kathryn), Douglas and Ashley, and his endearing great-grandchild, Beckett. He loved them all.
