M. Ross Brophy
It is with sadness the family of M. Ross Brophy of Quispamsis, loving husband of Carol (Liddell) Brophy, announce his passing on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at the Saint John Regional Hospital at the age of 82. Born on January 9, 1937, he was a son of the late Frank and Ivy (Wells) Brophy.
Ross lived for one thing, family, Carol and kids. Salmon fishing may have been second place. He was a proud professional engineer, graduating from the Royal Military College in Kingston, ON. His guidance, vision, and family first focus pushed Marc, Krista, and Leisa to become educated, independent, confident and successful. He achieved his goals.
In addition to his wife, Ross is survived by his children: Marc (Cathy) Brophy, of Dartmouth, NS; Krista (Peter) Thompson, of Halifax, NS; and Leisa Brophy, of Cobourg, ON; and his eight grandsons: Matthew and Michael Brophy, Jonathan, Andrew and Justin Thompson, and Adam, Jeremy and Bradley Barrett.
Special thanks to the awesome staff of 5C North of the Saint John Regional Hospital.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road, Quispamsis, NB (506-849-2119). In keeping with Ross' wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. For those who wish, remembrances in memory of Ross may be made to Atlantic Salmon Federation or a charity of the donor's choice.
