It is with great sadness that the family of Paul Anthony Ross, 59 - Lunenburg announces his passing, on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at home.

Born in Halifax, he was the son of the late John Herbert and Catherine Edna (Prendergast) Ross.

After graduating from Dalhousie University, Paul started his working career in the Insurance Industry, spending the last 17 years with Economical Insurance, Dartmouth.

Paul was an avid sailboat racer with the Lunenburg crew onboard Ramage in his earlier years. He participated in many of the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean races, the Newport to Bermuda races and considered a valuable member of the crew. He was keenly interested in the Lunenburg Yacht Club and in particular the Learn to Sail program. He was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. Much of his free time was spent boating on the waters of Mahone Bay.

He was predeceased by his parents, niece, Catherine Betts, and great-nephew, Jeremy Bennett.

Paul is survived by his wife, Cindy Woodgate, son, John (Shelby Williams), sisters, Jacqueline Ross, Coombs, BC; Maureen (James) Betts, Halifax; Rosemary Ross, Lunenburg, brothers, John (Anne) Ross, Pictou Island; Philip Ross, Kelowna, BC, several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Cindy & Family:
Our sincere condolences, during this trying time. I have some great memories of being on the water with Paul over the years both racing and cruising. It was only a month ago that we had such a great conversation about his recovery and old times. It just seems that time moves so fast, and in this case it has. Judy & John
