GARNEAU, David Ross. October 5, 1938 – May 5, 2014. It is with great sadness in our hearts we announce the passing of Ross. Surrounded by his family, Ross passed peacefully in his sleep. Devoted husband, beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He will be greatly missed by many. Predeceased by his loving wife Marilyn. Ross leaves behind his loving family; daughters Deborah (Don) and Darlene, their children Jennifer, Micheal, Chantal, Joey and Natasha. Great-grandchildren Mataya and Marcus; brother Wayne (Cindy); sisters Arlene (Des) and Beverly (Franco) and many nieces and nephews. An avid outdoorsman, Ross loved to explore the many back roads of BC hunting and fishing, camping with family and friends. Many good memories were made and shared over the years.
A driver/trainer for Canada Safeway for 37 years, Ross retired but still enjoyed “road trips” well into his retirement, visiting family and friends all over BC. A kind, caring, loving man.
His smile and laugh will be fondly remembered by all who know him. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at the Dr. Stuart Pavillion for their kindness and compassion to Ross during his final days. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Alzheimer’s Society of BC would be appreciated. Service was held Monday, May 11th, at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel.
