    We regret to advise of the death of Warrant Officer Wayne Byron Ross (Ret’d) of Edmonton on 24 April 2015 at the age of 73 years.

    Wayne joined the Canadian Forces as a Reservist in 1962, and served all his 34 years with 8 Field Engineer Regiment (now 41 Combat Engineer Regiment) until his retirement in 1996. We was among a small group within the Regiment who have received a second clasp for their Canadian Forces Decoration - marking 32 years of service.

    Shortly after his retirement, the Regiment created an award called the “Bentley Beaver Award” that is awarded in honour of Warrant Officer Wayne Ross.  This award is awarded to the member of the Regiment who best displays the spirit of the unit as elected by the non-commissioned members. 

    Cremation has taken place. Memorial Service Monday, 4 May at 11:00 a.m. at Park Memorial Chapel, 9709 – 111 Avenue, Edmonton In lieu of other tributes, donations may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute, Alberta Cancer Foundation, 11560 University Avenue, Edmonton, AB T6G 1Z2.
