CAWKER, Ross R. - March 15, 1930 - January 26, 2013 Passed away peacefully at Credit Valley Hospital January 26, 2013, at the age of 83. Beloved husband of Joan for 36 years who was at his side for the entire journey. Father to Ralph (Sandra), Lynn, Carroll, Janice (Peter) and Lori. Loving grandfather to Brandon, Spencer, Mark, Dawn, Valerie, Sierra, Cullen, Matthew, Daniel, Zachary, Marin, and Justin. Ross, more than anything, enjoyed his time with his family and grandchildren. He was an inspiring man to his family and those who knew him. While his spectacular working career in sales was cut short by an accident, he never looked back and continued his zest for life, always smiling, and having the fortitude and gratitude to know what is important, and doing his utmost for friends and family. We will miss his radiant smile, his bright outlook, and his never-ending humour. We owe tremendous gratitude to the Sunnybrook trauma miracle team that provided Ross with an additional 25 years of life for him to enjoy with his loved ones. The family also wishes to thank Credit Valley hospital staff for their compassion and care during his final days. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Neweduk-Erin Mills Chapel, 1981 Dundas St. West in Mississauga, just east of Erin Mills Parkway on Thursday, January 31 at 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A service will be held at the chapel on Friday at 1 p.m. For those who prefer, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
