Bert Alexander Ross ~ of Harriston, passed away at Palmerston & District Hospital on Saturday, March 2, 2019 in his 86th year.

Bert was the husband of Eleanore Ross for 60 years, and father of Dale and Tami Ross of Minto Township, Gary and Wendy Ross of Minto Township, Deanna and John Quintieri of Caledon, and Brent Ross and Adele Campbell of Harriston.
