BAILEY, Alvin 'Ross' - On Saturday, July 9, 2016, in his 83rd year, our wonderful dad left us to join our mom, Eleanor "Toots."
Ross will be missed by his sister and brother-in-law, Claire and Roy Bowers, his sisters-in-law, Jean Wilson and Shirley George, his cousins, his many nieces and nephews and his friends.
Ross truly appreciated everyone in his life and still enjoyed his special friendships with his "chums" from Queensbury Ave.
Ross worked for IBM from the age of 17. He appreciated the stability and benefits this job provided and retired having felt proud of his accomplishments after 42 years.
Ross took the most pleasure from the simple things in life: his view on Sturgeon Lake, snacking on peanuts and jujubes in his easy chair, a cocktail or two before a nice meal with family and his favourite coconut macaroons made for him by his granddaughters.
We take comfort knowing that our dad passed as he would have wanted. He left us quickly, at the place he loved most while puttering outside with his son.
In keeping with his wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. If desired, a donation can be made to the charity of your choice through the Mackey Funeral Home in Lindsay or online.
We would like to thank Mackeys for its kindness and guidance and Kawartha Lakes EMS and Fire Department for their quick response.
Dad, you helped shape who we are with your good nature and sense of humour.We love you, we miss you and we will spend the rest of our lives celebrating yours.
Love, Todd, Andrea, Andrew, Kiah, Kristin and Mabel too. xo.
