Reverend Robert Donald Cross
1933-2020
Reverend Robert Donald Cross of New Minas, NS,
passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 20, 2020 at Soldiers
Memorial Hospital, Middleton, NS.
Robert was born on Big Tancook Island, NS on
August 29, 1933 to the late Ernest and Hazel (Mason) Cross. He was
raised and schooled on the Island, which remained his favourite place
on earth. Fishing, playing hockey, singing, and later, playing golf
were cherished activities. As a young man, Robert felt God calling him
to the ministry. He attended Eastern Pentecostal Bible College and
graduated in 1955. He began his ministry in Dalhousie, NB that same
year. Throughout his ministry, Robert pastored in all three Maritime
Provinces; he occasionally ventured off to Newfoundland, where he
loved to preach. Throughout his entire lifetime, and even until his
last days, Robert spoke to people he encountered about the Good News
of the Gospel.
Robert is survived by his wife of 64 years,
Ella (Ward) Cross, whom he married just before beginning his pastoral
ministry. He is also survived by his four children: Donald (Doreen);
Susan (Doug) Norton; Stephen (Lori); Nancy (Willis) Langford, as well
as ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Robert’s surviving siblings are: John (Elaine); Lillian
Dyer; Grace Henneberry; Faith (Bernard) Blinn and Colleen (Philip)
Levy. As well, Robert is survived by numerous nieces and
nephews.
Robert was predeceased by his brother, Elmer
Stuart Cross, and his sister, Doreen Edith Baker.
Funeral and burial arrangements will be
determined at a later date.
Ella and her children wish to thank the many
people who visited, prayed for and supported Robert during his
physical decline, as well as the VON caregivers, and many doctors,
nurses and hospital staff of the Valley Regional Hospital and Soldiers
Memorial Hospital for their kindness, compassion and professional care
for Robert.

Sympathies message

  1. Dear Mrs. Cross and Family,
    We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We have many good memories of your years on PEI having you and Pastor Cross, Donald, Susan, Stephen and Nancy at the former Calvary Temple. You and your family had such a passion for the ministry here, and that is appreciated so much. It was 43 years ago this September 3rd when he married us, and so many others. The years have passed so quickly since you lived on Seaview Blvd. in Charlottetown. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
    Mark and Lorna Underhill
