At home on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Thomas Malcolm Ross of Bainsville; age 63 years. Loving father of John, Campbell, and Finlay. Beloved former husband of Laurie Anne (nee Hodgins). Cherished son of Rhoda Ross (nee Westlake) of Courtenay, B.C., and the late John M. Ross (Bainsville). Dear brother of Lynn Ross (Garry Murdock), Beth Rees (Murray) both of Courtenay B.C., John “Murdie” Ross of Cornwall, and Lyle Ross (Moira) of Bainsville. Fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews. Tommy, with his quick, charming smile and sparkling blue eyes, never took the conventional path, but was always the captain of his own "chalop." A true Glengarry boy, with exceptional hockey skills, he loved watching his own boys at the rink. Tommy was never afraid to offend anyone, especially if you were on the St. Lawrence River at his "honey holes." Tommy loved a good fish fry, the hunting camp with his buddies, a good novel, and the history channel. Later in life, Tommy grew to love painting nature scenes on wood. Tommy’s passion for hunting and fishing is legendary, but his proudest legacy was his boys. Whether walking in the woods or scouting a new spot, Tommy always loved spending time with his boys. During his final years, Tommy's health limited his ability to fully engage in his passions. Still, with the help of his nephew, Mackenzie Petrie, who shared the love of fishing on the river, he was able to enjoy and pass on his knowledge to the next generation of fishing guides. TR will be fondly remembered by many that walked along his path. Tommy loved the outdoors and the wonder of nature, he was a long-time member of the (former) Lancaster Fish and Game Club, now Glengarry Fish and Game Club. As expressions of sympathy, Memorial Donations to the Glengarry Fish and Game Club, Box 48, South Lancaster, Ontario, K0C 2C0 would be appreciated by the family. As a Memorial to Tommy, a tree will be planted in a Memory Woods. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care and direction of the Munro & Morris Funeral Homes Ltd., 46 Oak St. Lancaster (613-347-3629).

I’m going to miss tommy and his stories.
He taught me lots about fishing and the outdoors.
He was my hero when I was a kid... always came to see dad and had a good story. Or we would go down to the marina and he would tell me what dock had a big bull frog to catch.
The last few years he would call to see how the fishing was or get some gossip.
My condolences to JT, Campbell, fin, Mac and Laurie Ann
My memories of TR will live on through the 3 boys as I see him every time I look at them

I just read of Tommy's passing. What a shock. The last time I spoke to him was at a hockey arena in Cornwall while he was watching one of his boys play. We played peewee hockey together in Maxville and in our late teens worked together on the pipeline. Good times. May you rest in piece my friend.
