John Alexander (Sandy) Ross

1942-2021

John Alexander (Sandy) Ross

The family is saddened to announce the passing of John Alexander "Sandy" Ross on December 31, 2021. Born on March 23, 1942, he was the son of the late Joseph and Priscilla (Fraser) Ross.

Sandy spent 39 years as the Meat Manager at Sobeys grocery store. After retiring, he joined the McAdam’s Funeral Home team for several years, until he retired fully. Throughout his life, Sandy was dedicated to his community. He was a founding member of  IAM (Christian Ministries) Inc. working with underprivileged children and people living with disabilities and was a board member up until his death. He was interested in ministry to men and organized Men’s Prayer Breakfast as well as serving on many church boards and committees over the years. He loved golf and hockey but most of all he loved his family, holding a special place in his heart for his grandchildren.

Sandy will be missed by his loving wife of 60 years, Myrna (nee Preston); his children Paul (Susan), Todd (Jennifer), and John (Lynn); grandchildren Benjamin, Corey, Victoria, Alexandra, Calvin, and Philippe; siblings Aubrey McLeod (Harold), Dorothy Ann Wilson (Robert); brother-in-law Bernie Preston (Phyllis); sister-in-law Mary Brace as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

In addition to his parents, Sandy was predeceased by his brother-in-law Roy Preston, sister-in-law Zita Preston, and sister-in-law Wilma Keoughan.

There will be a graveside service in the spring to honour Sandy’s life. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or IAM (Christian Ministries) Inc. would be appreciated by the family.
