Roos, Julius Peter
July 3, 1937 – April 9, 2021
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great-grandfather at the C-K Hospice after a brief and brave battle with cancer, with Family at his side.
Devoted husband and best friend of Ruth for 41 years. Loving father of John, Jennifer Reed (Allan), and Jane Cripps (Keith). Proud grandfather of Chantelle Pierman (Jake), Joshua Reed (Amy), and Allannah Kallonen (Benjamin). Adoring great-grandfather of Kaleb and Kinslie Pierman, Alivia, Peyton and Austyn Reed and Julian and Thomas Kallonen. Brother-in-law of Jean Coulson (late George) and Rob Gardner (Norma). Special companion to his puppy Sophie.
Peter will be fondly remembered for his love of clocks, particularly those that tick, and his fascination and love of numbers. If you were expecting a call from Dad, you best know your odometer reading beforehand, because he would know his and ask for yours. He loved to spend time playing cards, sharing laughs and telling stories with his family. During late night talks with Poppy, whether one on one or in a group, there was sure to be laughter, sometimes tears, solid advice and comforting words of wisdom. His love of sports has always been shared with his son John, grandson Josh and sons-in-law, providing many happy memories.
Peter was once described as a true gentlemen. A very accurate description of a very gentle man. His passing leaves us each with a void that cannot be filled until we meet again. Peter often said, we all make choices in this life. Choose to be kind, and love one another.
Those wishing to make a memorial contribution are asked to consider the Chatham-Kent Hospice, where the care given to Him and all of us was nothing less than amazing, with the utmost of dignity and love, or the Charity of your choice.
