With great sadness, the family announce
the passing of Ross Robert Whyte at the age of 90,
on May 28, 2022.
Husband of 66 years to Gretta McKell, father to Wendy (Doug Fitzgerald), Doug (Sylvie Lussier); grandfather to Ryan (Sarah Lunny), Selena (Tyler Leschuk) and Corey Fitzgerald, Michael (Marilyn Girard), Robert (Meredith Moore) and Kevin Whyte; great-grandpa to Kiera and Logan Whyte, Brooklyn and Jordyn Fitzgerald and Chloe Leschuk.
Predeceased by his parents Robert and Muriel, and sister Dorothy Thomson.
A lifelong dairy farmer of Braebank Farm and apple grower, Ross met many people over the years. He had an extraordinary memory up to the end – of facts, places and people. He enjoyed sharing these and had recently contributed many pictures and information of the area to a recent showing at Havelock Town Hall.
Sincere thanks to the doctors, nurses and P.A.B.S. of the Barrie Memorial Hospital in Ormstown. Donations in Ross’s memory can be made to the Women’s Auxiliary of the Barrie Memorial Hospital or a charity of your choice.
At Ross’s request, no funeral service will be held, and burial will be at the White Church on Covey Hill at a later date.
