Calvin Ross
1929-2019
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of
Donald Calvin Ross, 90, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney
on Monday, November 25th, 2019 with his loving
family at his side.
Calvin was born on October 4, 1929 in West Bay Marshes to the
late Hughena (Oliver) and the late Colin Ross. Calvin leaves
behind to mourn his loving and devoted wife of 51 years, Jeanette (Mac
Donald) of West Bay Road. Together they raised four
children; Tammy Kersten (Willy), Kingsville; Jody (Dina) Fort
McMurray, Alberta; Kelly, West Bay Road and Lori,
Antigonish. Calvin was especially proud of his
grandchildren, Mikayla, Calan, Bradley, Brogan, Gracie and Sadie. He
enjoyed their company immensely and loved them with all his heart. He
will be greatly missed by siblings, Ronnie (Amelia) Ross, West
Arichat; Hazel Schram (Herb), Simcoe, Ontario; and Ruby Mac Kay, West
Bay and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by
his sisters, Ethel and Betty and brothers, Palmer, David, Elmer, Jack,
Jamie, Norman and George “Rock-a-Bye” Ross.
When Calvin was a young boy he developed a tubercular hip but
that did not limit him in anything he set his mind to do and he seldom
complained. He had several careers throughout his
life. He worked in Halifax delivering milk and then with the
Department of Highways driving the snowplow. He went back to school to
become a welder and was a member with the Boilermakers Union who
worked to helped construct the Heavy Water Treatment Plants in Glace
Bay and Point Tupper. He also worked on the construction of
Nova Scotia Forest Industries and shortly thereafter he became an
employee where he worked in his trade as a welder until his
retirement.
Calvin was stubborn but had a heart of gold and was very
generous. He had an entertaining personality, quick wit and
was knowledgeable on many things. He was an avid reader and
enjoyed nature and the outdoors. He spent many Summers
touring around with his family in the camper enjoying the scenic
countryside. When not touring he could be found sitting by the water
in Marble Mountain or taking in a traditional Scottish concert and
enjoying a good stiff drink. Calvin was happiest when
surrounded by his family and friends. He was very giving and community
minded and was one of the founding members and first Fire Chief of the
West Bay Road Volunteer Fire Department.
Visitation for Calvin will be from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on
Thursday November 28th in Dennis Haverstock
Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. He will then be cremated with
funeral service on Saturday, November 30th at 2
p.m. in West Bay United Church, West Bay with Lorna MacRury
officiating. Burial to follow in Lime Hill Cemetery.
Donations in memory of Calvin may be made to the Heart and
Stroke Foundation, the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home or the West Bay
Road Volunteer Fire Department. Words of comfort may be
