Richard John Ross

September 2, 1951 – December 23, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Rich on December 23, 2019 while on vacation in Costa Rica.
His last days were spent doing what he loved, biking, surfing, enjoying time with friends and embracing Pura Vida! His love of music, sense of humour, gentle voice and warm smile were shared by many.
He is preceded in death by his father Allan (1969) mother Helen (1997) and brother Bill (2011)
He is survived by his wife Karen, son Taylor, daughter Katie (David), grandsons Justin and Ryan, sisters Gail (David), Sharon (Ron), Lynda (Tim), brother Don (Gisele), sister in law Pat and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial will be held at the Pemberton Community Centre on April 11th, 2020 at 2:00 pm. Donations may be made to Canadian Cancer Society or Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. To write a condolence to the family, please visit
