It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Kevin Ross, who tragically lost his life on Sunday, July 29, 2018 on Mount Yamnuska in Canmore, Alberta.

He is survived by his father Richard, step-mother Camille, sister Melanie Arsenault (Todd), niece Lennon and nephew Grady. Kevin was predeceased by his mother Beryl.

    We are truly sorry for your loss. The loss of one’s child is heartbreaking. Our hearts ache for you and your family. Kevin was a wonderful young man who was not only an amazing athlete, but intelligent and humble in his pursuits. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching Kevin, and at times his antics with his buddies made it hard not to chuckle. His energy, drive and desire to pursue his interests with passion and zeal is what made Kevin a champion in all he did. Kevin will be terribly missed by all who knew him. He lived and died pursuing a life we all dream about.

    Richard, Camille, Mel, Todd, Lennon & Grady,
    We are devestated at the loss of Kevin. Kind words will reinforce what you know, that Kevin was a great man, son, brother and Uncle. He embraced the opportunities given to him whilst giving back his passion of life to those he met. We hope as time goes by you will realise there are thousands of memories that will make you think his life was much longer than his tragically short time on this earth. Whilst we only met him briefly, it was clear he adored his family. Humble and welcoming, it was a pleasure to meet him.
    We will always be here for you all and will be thinking of you today, tomorrow and for years to come.

    Eileen, Mark, Emily & Hannah Teeton
