Ross William Creighton of Kincardine, died peacefully at Kincardine hospital, Monday, June 12, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was 88. Left to mourn his passing, are his daughter, Kathy (John D.) Colling; and his son, Tom Creighton, both of Kincardine. Also missed by his grandchildren, Mike (Cathy) Colling of Peterborough and Mitch (Rochelle) Colling of Kincardine; and great-grandchildren, Matty, Ethan and Brett Colling of Peterborough and Claire and Cody Colling of Kincardine. Predeceased by his wife, Bernice Creighton; brother, Keith Creighton; and sister, Margaret Franklin; as well as his best friend and furry companion, Ginger. Ross was the guy you called on for any job of carpentry, plumbing, electrical or anything else that needed doing. He was the first one there and the last to leave. His entire family benefited from his generous heart and his time. Nothing was too big or too small for Ross to fix. He was a devoted sports fan of his two grandsons, Mike and Mitch. Many fun weekends were spent as a family at tournaments around the province. We can’t count the times Grandpa Ross drove through any weather to get the boys to their games and home safely. We are forever grateful. In these past weeks, Ross spent special time with Mitch, watching his favourite Blue Jays and the hockey games, with drink in hand. A special thank you to Dr. Damian Gunaratne and Dr. Victor Tat for their compassion and their kind words. We are so thankful to have these doctors in our community. Cremation has taken place and a private family gathering will be held; arrangements entrusted to Grey Bruce Cremation and Burial Services,
