It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hugh at Rotary Hospice House in Richmond, B.C. Predeceased by wife Pat, sister Nancy and parents Hugh and Doreen Ross, Hugh is survived by sons Randy and Frank, daughter Kathy (John), granddaughter Chris (Daren), and great-grandchildren Brian and Shelby.
The Guest Book is expired.
Hugh was born in Toronto and raised in Vancouver. A graduate of the University of B.C. Hugh took his post-grad at University of Toronto, in hospital administration. After a few years living in Ontario and Ormestowne, Quebec, the family returned to his much loved B.C., settling first in Prince Rupert, and finally in Richmond in 1964.
Hugh was the first CEO of Richmond Hospital, including managing the facility through initial design and build, retiring after almost 20 years of service. He and Pat then enjoyed life to the fullest, spending time with good friends at their Kauai condo, enjoying cruises and taking road trips all over the U.S.
Family members would like to extend thanks to his caregivers, Albert and Angie, and the staff of Rotary Hospice House for their care and compassion. There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
He was a good man, he led a full life and he will always be remembered with love.
