Past Minto deputy reeve Bert Ross died March 2

MINTO - The passing of a former Minto Township councillor and deputy reeve was lamented at the March 5 Minto council meeting.

Councillor Judy Dirksen noted Bert Ross, 85, who died on March 2, was elected deputy reeve in 1994, the same year she and fellow current town councillor Mark MacKenzie were first elected to the council of the former township of Minto.

Ross, who served a total of 25 years on council, ran a dairy farm in Minto Township before retiring to Harriston with his wife Eleanore in 2005.

“Bert was well respected in public and private life. He was my mentor and he was my uncle and he will be missed,” said Dirksen.
