Left us on Thursday June 20, 2019 at the Milton District Hospital. Despite the medical problems that confined him to a hospital bed in his home for some years, he maintained a cheerful attitude and appreciated the help he received through LHIN from PSWs from March of Dimes and Paramed. Ross was a teacher and taught at JM Denyes in Milton and WM Morden in Oakville and greatly enjoyed his teaching years. He will be sadly missed by his wife Elaine and his 4 sons; Jim (Amy), David, Michael (Lela) and Stephen (Danielle) as well as his grandchildren; Christopher (Olivia), Emily, William, Tyson, Jesika and Joy. Family and friends are invited to visit at the McKERSIE-KOCHER FUNERAL HOME 114 Main St. E.

Dear Mrs. McGuigan,
i just wanted to let you know that Mr. McGuigan was my Grade 4 and Grade 5 teacher at JM Denyes and he really brought me out of my shell. I was a very very shy awkward girl at the beginning of Grade 4 and at the end of Grade 5 I couldn't wait to go to middle school. He was a lovely man and always made his lessons fun. A true teacher he definitely was. I am so sorry for your loss. But i thought i would share this with you as Mr. McGuigan will always have a special place in my heart.
