1980 - 2017
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our son, brother, uncle and friend Adam Ross, at the age of 37 on August 31st, 2017. Adam will be missed for his passion for people and nature, his intelligent scientific mind and his uplifting sense of humour. He was a man who loved and accepted others as they are, and his thoughtfulness knew no limits. We are especially grateful for his willingness to be open with his loved ones during his final months about the choice that his severe physical suffering would lead him to.
Along with many, many beloved friends and extended family, grieving are Adam’s parents Anne and Brian, his brother Paul, sisters Sally, Stephanie Conroy and Alison Giddings, brothers-in-law Dave and Jack, sister-in-law Chelcy, and his seven wonderful nieces and nephews: Kayven, Kirsten, Luke, Nora, Eli, Parker and Ellianna. We feel happy and contented knowing Adam is finally free of his struggle with a disabling chronic pain condition. Over the past seven years of seeking countless means of relief and improvement in his quality of life, he was unable to experience normal pleasure and relaxation while in physical form.
You will eternally live on in our hearts and will be a light to guide our way Adam. We love and miss you.
Our Celebration of Adam’s Life will take place on Saturday, September 16th at the Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre, 1250 Rogers Way. Service begins at 2:00pm with reception to follow.
