Back in the day when my job took me all around the shop, I would some days ask everyone a survey question of the day, and post the results at the end of the day. One day the question I asked was “Who do you think is the nicest guy and nicest gal in here?” The guy who got the most votes by far was Ross. Nuff said. My condolences Aggie. RIP Ross, was a pleasure to know you.

Dear Aggie...we are heartbroken to hear of Ross’s passing. He was both loved and respected as a very kind and gentle soul to us and to our girls. We have fond memories of him in our home, part of our family celebrations. We all were so very blessed to have you both in our lives. Our very sincerest condolences to you, Nadine and Carol. With much love, Wendy, George, Carley, and Julia.
