Obituary of Douglas William Ross

Douglas William Ross passed away on January 18, 2024. Douglas was born in Prince Albert, SK on November 5, 1935 to Marjorie and William Ross.  At a young age just out of high school Doug ventured off to Prince Rupert B.C. where he worked in a fish cannery for 2 years. He then made his way back to Prince Albert and sometime later he met Ann Eskes and they were married on May 23, 1955. They went on to have 3 boys which made for a very busy life. Doug worked for Burns as well as Dept. of Indian and Northern Affairs, although the majority of Ann and Doug’s life was devoted to farming just south of Prince Albert.  Anna and Doug spent many years as members of the Prince Albert Optimist Club, where they made many lasting friendships.
