Ross was the principal that hired me almost 30 years ago. He was such a kind, gentle man that had a great sense of humour. I loved working for him and have many wonderful memories. My sincere condolences to his family. We have all lost a wonderful man. ❤️

Uncle Ross kept us all coming ‘home’ year after year to celebrate with extended family at our annual Walmsley family picnic and fostered what true belonging meant. He lived a wholehearted life and was more friend than uncle as we left the inner circle of family to thrive into the world, with the knowledge that when we returned home there was always a laugh, a hug and love waiting for us. He was a sounding board for many of us and was my first true ‘coach’ - a man who modeled life with integrity humanity and humility.. and humour.
Sadly missed by Viki, Bob, Andrea & Stephanie.
