Capt Stuart Crawford Ross (Ret'd)
We regret to advise of the death of Captain Stuart Crawford Ross (Ret'd) in his 74th year on 12 November 2010 at Ottawa.
Stuart grew up in Southampton, England during WWII. After the war, the family settled in Montreal. He attended Collége militaire royal de St Jean (1957), Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston (1959), and University of Toronto where he graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering (1960). He served with the Royal Canadian Engineers with 4 Field Squadron in Germany and then at Government House as an aide-de-camp to Governor General Georges Vanier. Stewart left the Army after four years and began a career in education. He worked at the University of Chicago, Fanshawe College in London, ON, Algonquin College in Ottawa, and eventually was appointed as President of Westerra Institute of Technology in Edmonton (now part of NAIT). He retired to live in Ottawa.
Friends are invited to join the family on Friday, 3 December 2010 at 3:00 pm at the Whelan Funeral Home, 515 Cooper St to celebrate Stuart's life.
