It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father/grandfather, Bill Rossmo. Bill, the beloved husband of Eunice Rossmo of Saskatoon, passed away at Veteran’s Village (Sherbrooke) on Oct. 22, 2016 at the age of 90 years. He was the loving father of: Kim Rossmo, (Lucia Summers) of Austin, Texas; Kerry Rossmo of Saskatoon; Denise Rossmo-Wiegers, (Warren Wiegers) of Saskatoon; and Marla McMenamin, (Patrick McMenamin) of Edmonton, Alberta. He will be dearly missed by his three grandchildren, Caitlin McMenamin, Kyle McMenamin, and Madison Wiegers. He will also be lovingly remembered by his extended family including several nieces and nephews and many dear friends. Bill was predeceased by his mom and dad and his four siblings. Bill was born in Sutherland to Mike and Mary Rossmo. At an early age, he began working for the Canadian Pacific Railway. At the age of 18, he joined the Royal Canadian Navy and served in the North Atlantic during World War II. Upon his return, Bill resumed working with the CPR. After leaving the railroad in 1957, he had a number of business ventures including Sutherland Autobody, Craft Shack Hobbies, and Ziebart Rustproofing. In retirement Dad invented a gate latch called The Gator which he was very proud of. The most important thing in the world to Dad was his family. We meant the world to him. No matter what day or time, Dad was there to help us with anything. Dad was a very loving and kind man. People enjoyed his wonderful sense of humour which he retained until the very end. He will be dearly missed. The family wishes to thank the wonderful caregivers at Veteran’s Village (Sherbrooke). A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
