From: Janna Reid
Relation: Ross is my brother.

Missing your presence here on this earth my brother. You were such a great big brother, played with me, watched out for me especially after our dad died. You made me feel noticed, listened to. You opened up so many avenues of thoughts and possibilities for me. I am eternally grateful and have loved you always.

From: Rose Ranger


From: Janna Reid
Relation: Ross is my brother.

Ross ( birth name Victor Douglas Leitch) was the first born to Dugald and Helen (Malkoski) Leitch in Sudbury, Ontario. He was a consummate story teller and historian, always seeking new information and reveling in learning about everything and loved sharing his ideas and opinions. He accrued a vast amount of knowledge and was so open in pursuing more endlessly. Ross valued family more than anything in life, being a father to his children Jud and Rose brought him great pride and joy. He was a beloved member of our family although we lived so far apart we all maintained an emotional closeness. Ross is predeceased by our father Dugald Leitch (1954), mother, Helen Mazure (2020), stepdad, Jules Mazure (1989), brothers, David Leitch (2018), Jim Mazure, (2020), wife Georgia. Survived and missed by sisters, Karen Votour (Roy), Barbara Upton(Robin), Janna Reid (Gary) and Cindy Waller(Rob) and brother, Don Mazure(Betty) as well as many nieces and nephews. I am so happy that Ross said he had a vicarious grandfather experience through my grandsons, Tafari and Mak, he took great pleasure is hearing about their adventures and enjoyed talking with them and sharing stories. Our family circle grows smaller but not the love our parents imbued in us. Ross, you are always loved and never forgotten.

From: Cindy Waller
Relation: Brother

My big brother Ross is going to be forever missed and loved. For me, he was part philosopher, historian, and story-teller our family’s memories. His smile was warm, his wit was quick, and he wasn’t shy to express his opinion or to impart his wisdom.
Rest in peace my Big Brother.

From: Barbara Upton
Relation: My big brother.

Ross was a large influence in my life. He gave me self-confidence when it was needed, and as a child I didn’t realize how much he affected me. One of my favourite memories – He gave me a small, pink Papermate ballpoint pen as a gift at a time when our large family didn’t have money for extras like that extravagance. I was in grade 5 at the time & treasured that pen, & the memory of receiving it, for years. I don’t think he had any idea how special it was. He was a thoughtful, erudite man who was loved by many.

From: Teresa Baker
Relation: Dear friend

Missing you Ross. Our friendship goes back over 50 years. You moved to BC and I stayed in Ontario but was so happy to reconnect about 20 years ago. Despite the distance, our bond was very strong. I am so thankful you were in my life.
