Carl Ross
1941-2019
Carl Ross passed away peacefully but unexpectedly in his
sleep at home on July 9, 2019 after a courageous battle with
cancer.
Carl loved his family and large circle of friends. He and his
wife Sue often hosted gatherings at their beachfront home in Grand
Barachois, N.B., and he was entertaining right up until the weekend
before he passed away.
Carl never failed to see the humor and ironies in the many
absurdities of our times, and loved to provoke discussion,
often with the help of some mild sarcasm.
Rarely did he have no opinion. He could debate extensively
about everything from baseball and his beloved New York Yankees to
politics to the philosophy of life.
Though he lived life to the fullest, he was calm and patient.
While his death came somewhat unexpectedly, it was also fitting for
someone who had no time for drama and was not big on long
goodbyes.
He was a loving father who was supportive but not
overbearing. He coached his children in sports and preached the value
of education while encouraging them to think for
themselves.
Carl was born in St. Stephen, N.B., the son of Joseph and
Gertrude Ross.
Carl graduated from N.B. Teachers College in Fredericton and
was a teacher and principal early in life. He worked as an air traffic
controller for many years in Moncton, rising to top management
positions in the Atlantic Canada air traffic control system. In early
retirement, he turned his attention to volunteerism,
serving
as chairman of the then District 15 school board and the
board of the Moncton Hospital.
Carl enjoyed curling, golf and bridge. He especially loved to
travel. After retirement, he and Sue worked as educators in China, St.
Lucia and Brazil. While abroad, he always sought to learn as much as
possible about the local culture and society and made many friends in
these distant locales.
He leaves behind his wife, Sue, sons Carl (Ann Lockhart
Ross), Shane (Rose Marie Braden) and Chris, and daughter Robyn (Ian
Murray); grandchildren Jordan, Matthew, Haley (Matthew Flewwelling),
Nicholas, Emily, Jack, Daniel, Jessie and Charlie; great-grandchildren
Ava and Isla; and brother Fred (Nellie Ross). He is predeceased by his
sister Petrea (Dave Mahar) and brother Jack in infancy.
The family will be receiving relatives and friends at
Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine
Road, Riverview (869-2007) on Friday from 6-8 PM, with a service
celebrating Carl’s Life to take on Saturday, July 13, 2019
at 10 AM from the funeral home. Donations to The Friends of The
Moncton Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society would be
appreciated by the family.

Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Carl Ross 19412019..
