He was preceded in death by his parents, Ross Sr and Rosa Davie, his brother, Robert Davie, his sister, Rosalie Davie Liddle and granddaughter, Eve Ingram.
Born and raised on the family farm/ranch Ross saw many changes over the years, especially due to the depression and World War II. On the ranch he participated in the last generation to raise and break wild horses for cavalry. The family ranch transitioned throughout the years to raising sheep, vegetables and eventually becoming the cattle and hay ranch it is today. Ross was proud of his success in building upon and continuing the family legacy.
As a young man he excelled in sports and especially enjoyed throwing the javelin. He loved to square dance and that is where he met Pat, his wife of 46 years. Ross was active in the community of Del Norte as a Mason, member of Pioneer United Church, Cattlemen’s Association, Farm Bureau and various agriculture committees over the years. He loved going to farm sales and he was at every farm sale in the Valley for many a year until his blindness prevented him from going.
Ross was a man who never met a stranger and always had an interesting story to tell. He especially enjoyed sharing the history of his family and the Del Norte community. Ross will be greatly missed by his large family and many friends.
