In loving memory of Ernie Ross, age 74, who passed away suddenly on April 12, 2009, at his home, following a lengthy illness.
Born April 25, 1934 in Stratton, Ontario, he was the second oldest of nine children. Prior to coming to Dryden, Ernie worked in Minnaki and Atikokan.  He came to Dryden in 1958 and was employed at the paper mill as an electrician for 39 years.
He was predeceased by his parents Albert and Sadie.

Ernie enjoyed fishing and spent many happy hours on Lac Seul with his longtime friend Norm. He was an avid reader who absorbed everything and was able to discuss any topic with others.  He loved his work and the many challenges it brought.  He was often called into work during his off time because the guys knew that Ernie could fix the problem. Ernie enjoyed spending time working in his yard and garden. He was a long- time fan of Minor Hockey and took great pleasure in watching his grandson Scott play.
A funeral service was held Friday, April 17, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church with Reverend Alan Campeau officiating. Interment followed in the Dryden Cemetery.
