ROSS, David Louis
David was born July 17, 1950 in Vancouver. He passed away October 15, 2014 at Peace Arch Hospital at age 64.
David is predeceased by his parents William and Flora Ross. He is survived by his brother Doug Ross and sister-in-law Sandra Lyne along his nephew Michael Ross and niece Pamela Ross.
“Fireman Dave” loved FIFA soccer, skiing at Whistler, Travelling to Mexico, blues music, cooking, cars – especially his ‘Vette and most of all hoisting a pint with his many friends.
Dave retired as a Fire Captain after serving more than 35 years with Coquitlam Fire/Rescue. Dave was dedicated to his career. Retirement plans were cut short by cancer as a direct result of exposure in his occupation. He has now paid the ultimate price for his service. Dave will be sorely missed by his fellow firefighters, friends and family.
A service will take place on October 29th at 11am at the Richmond Funeral Home, 8420 Cambie Rd, Richmond. Followed by a celebration of life at The Buck & Ear Pub, 12111 – 3rd Ave, (Steveston) in Richmond. Dave was grateful to the many medical staff and friends who made his final weeks blessed. Donations in Dave’s honour can be made to the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund.
