Memorial Service Today For Ross H. MacLean


By Dwight Ford

Over 900 people came out on Wednesday to remember Ross H. MacLean at a memorial service at the Fort St. John Curling Club.  

Here is Mayor Bruce Lantz, with one of the many deserving tributes for Mr. MacLean.

MacLean passed away last Friday at the age of 92.

Along with Braden Herron he helped start minor hockey in this city 55 years ago, and he was also a driving force behind the construction of the Kids Arena.

The Fort St. John Rotary RV Park in Charlie Lake is named in honour of the long time rotarian, and in a community tribute earlier this year, he was also chosen as the final torchbearer in the local Olympic Torch Relay.

Along with his children and grand-children, MacLean is survived by his wife Irene, to whom he was married for nearly 70 years.

Expressions of sympathy can be made to the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.
