ROSS: December 6, 1968 – April 22, 2013. It is with utmost sadness and disbelief that we announce the unexpected passing of Christopher Winston Ross following a heart attack on April 22, 2013. Born December 6, 1968, Chris was raised in Brandon, Manitoba where he attended elementary school and graduated from Vincent Massey High School. He went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce Honours degree from the University of Manitoba, and then articled with Meyers, Norris, Penny to earn a Chartered Accountant designation. He moved from public accounting to the business sector where he worked for Progress Rail and, at the time of his passing, was employed by Sandvik (formerly Cubex) where he acted as Chief Financial Officer & Chief Operating Officer – Manufacturing. Throughout his journey in life, Chris’s academic achievements included: CA (Chartered Accountant), CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor), CPA (Certified Public Accountant, USA designation) and CBV (Chartered Business Valuator). Chris lived large and enjoyed spending his time with family, friends, food, and fun. His tastes were eclectic. He was an avid reader and greatly enjoyed many genres of music. He loved entertaining and frequently hosted UFC gatherings at his home. He was a whiz at the computer and often bailed out frustrated, technically - challenged family members. He managed to maintain relationships with far-flung friends and family members through social media. He was straightforward, detail-oriented, and always called a spade a spade, but at the same time, had a heart of gold and was extremely generous with family and friends. He was a fantastic uncle, and took a lot of teasing about being a single man with a baby seat in his vehicle. His love affair with motorcycles started at the age of two, and he wore out many toes of his little ‘braking shoes’. Chris had done exhaustive research on dome homes, and was looking forward to beginning construction of his own dream dome home on his rural property this summer. Cherishing Chris’s memory are his parents: Robert (Bob) and Lois Ross, brother Vincent (Maribel) Ross, precious nephew Rex Ross, grandfather Lyle Watson, grandmother Marjorie Oliver, and numerous extended family members. Chris will also be missed by his large network of close friends and business associates. Welcoming Chris into his next chapter are his grandfather Winston Ross, grandmother Beulah Watson and Grandfather George Oliver. Cremation has taken place & a celebration of Christopher’s life will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, 2 P.M. at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home, 4477 Main Street, West St. Paul, MB.

HESSE: It is with great sadness that the family of Carman Hesse, beloved husband of Marian, said goodbye to him on April 9, 2013 at the age of 74 years. Carman Albert Hesse was born January 27, 1939 to Alice and Albert Hesse in Belmont, Manitoba. His early years were spent in Minto, Kelso, Griswold, Belmont and Wawanesa. His working years were spent at Manco Dairies, BRHC and BMHC. Carman and Marian met and were later married in Wawanesa, MB. After moving to Brandon, they raised their family of four children in the Green Acres area before moving to “The Farm” near Kemnay. It was here that he spent many enjoyable hours farming, tending his cattle, gardening and opening their home to family and friends. An avid outdoorsman, Carman enjoyed hunting, snowmobiling, gardening, fishing and camping to name just a few. The family took advantage of their weekends and summer holidays to explore many campgrounds and enjoy their time together. Many great stories were told around a roaring campfire with a circle of family and friends. Carman had a special place in his heart for his children, which later grew to include his devoted grandchildren. A doting grandfather, he and Marian took the grandkids on many travelling adventures and turned their yard into a young child’s dream. Many family and friends were also quickly “adopted” and soon referred to Carman as Grandpa, Uncle or “my other Dad.” Carman and Marian always enjoyed touring the countryside and shared many great outings with friends over the years. Carman was predeceased by his parents, Alice and Albert Hesse, his brother Gordon, sister Alvine Gray, mother and father-in-law Pearl and Herb Gullett, and sister-in-law Ruth. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 52 years, Marian (née Gullett), daughters Terri (Kirk), children Lindsay and Kasie; Tracy (Rick), children Brett (Sabrina), Adam and Kristen; Deb (Alex) and son Brad (Jody), children Marian, Alice and Charlie. Carman is also survived by his brother Buck, four sisters-in-law, four brothers-in-law and many nieces and nephews, all of whom Uncle Carm loved to tease. Since his diagnosis with ALS, Carman developed and even greater appreciation of his time spent with family and friends. A come and go memorial reception was held at Prairie Oasis on the afternoon of April 13th. The family extends a heartfelt thank you to all of those who attended, sent cards, flowers, food and kind words. A special thank you to friends and neighbours whose generous assistance allowed Carman to stay at home, as well as Dr. Butler and the staff of Station 2 at the Brandon Clinic for the compassion and respect shown to Carm during his illness. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Carman may be made to the ALS Society of Manitoba, 493 Madison Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3J 1J2 or to a charity of choice.
