John James 'Jim' Ross

The family announces, with sorrow, the passing of John James “Jim” Ross on Friday, May 24, 2019, at the age of 99 years.
Dear son of the late Harry and Annie May (nee McNeil) Ross.
Beloved husband of the late Matilda “Tillie” Ross (nee McIntyre); beloved father of David, Sudbury; beloved grandfather of Fay (Steve); beloved great-grandfather of Julian and Aiden.
He was predeceased by his daughter-in-law, Kristine Ross (nee Tenhunen); grandson, Julian; two infant sons and all his siblings.
Jim will be sadly missed by his daughter-in-law’s family; many nieces and nephews and their children; many cousins including Sally and good friends including Kenny and Doris.
He was born in a farm house on the Banks Road in Inverness, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the second youngest in a family of six. Jim was a Canadian veteran of the Second World War, serving as a Military Policeman in France, Holland and Germany. After the war, he came to Sudbury and met his wife of 60 years. Jim retired from Inco in 1978 and they returned to Cape Breton. After a family tragedy in 1983, he and Tillie came back to Sudbury and despite the great loss, spent many happy years helping to help raise his granddaughter.
In his last years, Jim received good care and made many friends at Harbourview Veterans Hospital in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia.
A Mass and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
