It is with deep sadness and heartache the family of Ross Durnford announces the passing of a loving husband, dad, son, brother, uncle and friend on Tuesday December 6, 2022. Ross was a remarkable man, who had a true zest for life. Whatever he did, he did with passion, dedication and kindness.

Pre deceased by sister Irene Durnford , grandparents George and Irene Harris, and Allan and Gladys Durnford.
There are no words we can use to describe the loss we feel losing someone as special as Ross. He truly was the best husband, father, son, brother, brother n law, nephew, cousin, and friend. His wife and kids were his world and there was absolutely nothing he wouldn’t have done for them.
He had so much love to give, and gave it he did. He had a huge generous heart that he would freely give to those around him. He was at his happiest when he could gather family and friends together for a good ole feed, sing song, and just a wonderful time. His huge personality, infectious smile, love of singing “certain” songs made him the center of attention at every gathering!
He lived life to the fullest! Whether it be going to one of his cabins, weekends at his trailer, skidooing, boating, atv rides, or travelling abroad on one of their many adventures. He made so many great memories that we hold so near and dear now. To say he will be missed by many would be a great understatement.
