Ross McIntosh Lorimer was born May 18, 1945. He died suddenly on August 7, 2012 while gathering firewood in the woods near his home in Lac Le Jeune.
Ross is survived by his wife of 41 years, Beverley, and his children Michael (Tammy) and Kathryn (Jason). The pride of Ross' life were his two grandchildren Talyn and Lauren. Since retirement, he has taken every opportunity to spend time with his two beautiful grandchildren. He is also survived by siblings Ted (Leanne), Jeanie, Jamie (Jennifer), Keith (Chris), sister-in-law Barbara (Tom) and many nieces and nephews.
Ross spent his entire working career in sales with Cadbury/Schweppes, Fraser Valley Foods, Pillsbury and Golden Boy. During his career, he worked with customers and friends throughout the entire province. Whether it was major retail chains or mom and pop corner stores, he built friendships that lasted throughout his entire career.
Ross enjoyed many vacations at Salt Spring Island and the Oregon Coast. This love of the west coast began with his boyhood summers spent at the family home on Salt Spring Island. Ross has travelled to Scotland numerous times over the past decade to visit daughter Kathryn and her family in Edinburgh. He loved the outdoors and took daily walks on nearby trails with his four-legged pals Kootenay and Tanner. Retirement also brought a renewed interest in golfing, fishing and spending time around the pool table with his friends.
At Ross' request, his life will be celebrated in a small family ceremony on Salt Spring in October.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Variety Children's Charity would be appreciated.
For those wishing to pay their respects, an Open House will be held at his home in Lac Le Jeune on Sunday, August 19th from noon until 2:00 p.m.
Arrangements have been entrusted to
