In the early 80’s my friend Peter and I used to visit the Ross family for the annual summer “Scottish Canada games”. This was a fun event which included golf and tennis. John was ready to join in the festivities whenever he got the opportunity. Simpler times when life was carefree and full of fond memories. My condolences to the Ross family.

One of my earliest memories of John are of him as a young boy in Kelowna at the lake skipping stones without a care in the world. That’s how I picture him today-carefree. Much love to John and family,

John you were the only brother I ever had. You looked up to me when we were young and when we got older I looked up to you. Thank you for always keeping in touch and your surprise visits. Jen and family, I hope you can find comfort and strength knowing there’s people like me thinking of you. See you on the other side John.

Even though I never knew John. I have heard many stories about him and the Ross family from my sister Tania Graham. Stories of fun times with John and Jenny and the amazing Ross family that were her family when she was so far from home. In this sad time I want you to know that our family feels this loss also. We send our deepest condolences and want the Ross family to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Arohanui (lots of love) Amanda
