Sue and family, I am soooo sorry for your loss. Ross was an amazing man/friend. My deepest sympathy.-Anne Taylor
My sincere condolences to Sue and the entire Winfield family. I will truly miss Ross. Whether it be at hockey, on one of our road trips, or one of his frequent visits to my house just to say hi and catch-up, his friendship, advice and conversation will all be missed. If you ever need anything Sue please do not hesitate to reach out. Ross was a great man and a great friend and we were all very lucky to have him in our lives. May your memories together live deep in your hearts forever. I am out of the country so I won't be able to deliver this message in person but I hope that you can find peace with the love and support that you have around you in the coming days. Keep that glove up Rosco and watch that five hole. Heaven has gained one of the most dedicated goaltenders that we ever had and a good friend of mine. Sincerely, Scott Scarrow-Scott Scarrow

I was fortunate enough to have known Rosco for the past 20+ years. He was our go to goalie in Parry Sound. He came to all of our out of town tournaments and loved the game. I had a beer with him on Dec 23 at the A&P cup. Last weekend our team was scheduled to play against Mactier with Ross in net. I ran into the team on Friday night inside the front of the rink. I shook Rosco's hand and gave him a hug. We joked about our upcoming game at 5 on Saturday and I told him I couldn't wait to shoot pucks at him for a change. To say I was shocked with the news on Saturday afternoon is an under statement. I still can't believe it! He was a super, easy going guy and will be missed by all of his hockey buddies, friends and family. I regrettably will be unable to attend the service as I will be out of the country. My thoughts will be with him and his family. Pec.-Robert Atherton
To the family of Ross, my condolences. Ross was a "good team player" while a member of the MNR family. Working with him was a pleasure.
Danny (The Shoe)
Our family is very sorry for your loss.-Monique Steeves
Condolences…from one of many hockey players who only knew Ross by his friendly smile and a hand shake at the end of a game.-Tim Belliveau
Just heard about Ross' passing. Condolences to all his family and many friends. Played hockey with and against Roscoe for many years. I met Ross in college in '74. Great goalie, wonderful guy! I worked a fire line on Hearst 48 with Ross and a great crew in '93 or 4 I think. Just looking at pictures. Some of my best memories of my working life. Again my and Connie's condolences, and God bless.-Jeff lever
My condolences go to his family and his sister Debbie and Parry. l enjoyed playing soccer with him at Club Heidelberg growing up. Rest in peace my friend.-John Camelia
I sadly just found out about Ross. I fondly remember when we went to school and played minor hockey together in his hometown of Thorold. We had a lot of fun with our mutual friends. Ross was a groomsman at our wedding 45 years ago. We haven't been in touch for many years but I have great memories of him and the Winfield family. Condolences to his family and friends.
