  • It’s likely that I met Ross ten or 11 years ago. Shortly after our first meeting, he gave me a table tennis paddle that I still have. I haven’t played in a couple of years and Ross would be disappointed in that. He always had a warm hello for me and all Y staff and members. He was one of our “regular” morning members, playing table tennis and enjoying a conversation over coffee. Although it’s been about a year since we’ve seen Ross at the Y, his passing still makes us miss him even more. My deepest sympathy to Sue and the entire family.
