Ross Henry Ackerman (Oscar)
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Ross Henry Ackerman (Oscar) on October 8, 2020 at the age of 58 at his home in Riding Mountain, Manitoba.
Ross was born on May 25, 1962 in McCreary, Manitoba to Ralph and Geneva (Morley) Ackerman, of Riding Mountain. They resided in Riding Mountain until 1966, when the family moved to Eden, Manitoba. Ross grew up in Eden, along with his siblings Ricky, Douglas and Loretta. Ross attended school in Eden and then later in Neepawa, Manitoba.
Ross worked at many jobs over the years: a farm labourer, a machinist, general construction and electrical work, and running a small engine repair business, among others. He lived and worked in Winnipeg, Manitoba as well as in Fort McMurray, Alberta for brief periods, but always returned to the area he considered home.
Ross was predeceased by two brothers, Douglas in 1979 and Ricky in 1980, his father Ralph in 1983, and his mother Geneva in 2004. Left to mourn are his sister Loretta and his nephew Craig, both of Winnipeg, as well as extended family and friends.
Cremation has taken place and a service will be planned at a later date.
