ROSAIRE CHEVRETTE

ROSAIRE CHEVRETTE

CHEVRETTE – ROSAIRE (ROSS) March 20, 1922 – May 1, 2010 My life’s been full, I’ve savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Ross was born and raised in Falher, AB. In 1954, with his wife Cecile and young son Leo, Ross moved his family to Prince George.  He continued his career as a master carpenter and his family grew with the addition of two daughters, Doris and Jeannette. In the 34 years that they lived in Prince George, Ross worked on many projects, including the town’s three pulpmills, schools and office buildings and building or renovating many homes, including his family home. Ross was highly respected in his field as a hard worker with an eye for detail. He was a fair supervisor and always took pride in a job well done. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed playing darts and horseshoes.  Nothing pleased him more than to spend the weekend at the lake camping and fishing. In 1988, after retiring at the age of 63, Ross and Cecile moved to Kelowna to enjoy the milder winters and longer gardening season. There he joined the seniors club learning to play bridge and spent many hours honing his pool playing skills. He took up lawn bowling and competed in the Seniors Olympics. He continued his passion of woodwork and created many beautiful bowls, candle sticks and bird houses. He is survived by Cecile, his loving wife of 59 years, his three children, Leo (Cathy), Doris (Greg) and

Jeannette. Also five grandchildren and two great grandsons, two sisters, one brother, many nieces and nephews and a multitude of friends. Ross was a quiet person with a twinkle in his eyes. He was a family man who adored his wife and loved his children. He enjoyed his life’s work and took pleasure in a good laugh. He will be greatly missed. The family would like to thank the caring staff at Three Links Manor for their care of Ross during the last 18 months. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road.  Interment followed at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made  to the Alzheimer Society: 211-1889 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC, V1Y5V5. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
