I knew Ross from playing cards online and he was a good guy. He gave very unselfishly of his time to help make the Knight Hawks the best spades club on the Internet- which it is - though it won't ever be the same without him. We had some fun times together and I enjoyed his company. This is a tragic loss for his friends and family. I was very saddened to learn of his passing. ( Informed on July 6) He left us way to soon and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will remember him fondly.
