In loving memory ~
With our hearts full, we would like to share that our father, William Ross Pitre passed away on May 21, 2023, at the age of 83.
As a young man living in Sooke, Ross began his lifelong career as a commercial fisherman. Most would know him by association with the Admar, his fishing vessel for many years. He had a great passion for the wilderness and working with his hands; he always had a project on the go - woodworking, cooking, fly-tying, and many more. He will be remembered in the AA community as a passionate advocate and sponsor. He maintained his wit and indomitable character til the end.
Ross was predeceased by his parents Joan & William "Bill" Pitre, and brothers Ken (Dorothy), and Murray (Cathy). He will be lovingly remembered by his family; daughter Karen Boudewyn (Jason), son Trent Pitre (Caitlin), 7 grandchildren, sister Mary Kendrew (John), and many extended family members.
Ross's celebration of life will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at the Charters River Interpretive Centre at 2895 Sooke River Road, Sooke BC.
