FERRIS, Francis Grant
(October 31, 1940-December 23, 2007)
Passed away on Sunday December 23, 2007 at the Saugeen Memorial Hospital in Southampton. Francis (Grant) of Port Elgin was in his 68th year. Grant was an enthusiastic outdoorsman who worked diligently over his lifetime to protect and preserve the environment. One of his great loves was fishing on the Saugeen River where his motto was “catch and release”. Another love was motorcycles, and he spent many happy days riding his Gold Wing along county roads with his motorcycle buddies from Guelph. He was a proud member of the Grey Bruce Motorcycle Touring Club, Outdoor Writers of Canada, the Sydenham Sportsman Association, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Lake Huron Fishing Club, Friends of MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Blue Ridge Sportman's Club, Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation, co-founder and writer for the Grey/Bruce Outdoors Webpage, and many others. But his greatest love was for his family. He will be forever missed by his wife of 38 years, Gloria (FARYON,) and his children Frank, Russ (Manie) of Milton, Lara INNEO (Vito) of Guelph, and Alyssa (Shawn MacPHERSON) of Cambridge. He was a proud and loving Papa to Olyvia INNEO and Talia FERRIS. He is also survived by his dear sisters Dianne DOEKES (Charles) and Donna WARNER (Ralph,) nephews Lee and Steve COWTAN, Daryl WARNER, and nieces Cheryl KLIMM and Jen WARNER. Also surviving are the many lifelong Friends he loved as brothers and sisters. He truly cherished them. Grant was predeceased by his parents Frank Cyril FERRIS and Olive Ada COLLINGRIDGE, and also an infant daughter, Jessica. Cremation has taken place and a private committal will take place at Woodland Cemetery, Guelph, at a later date. If anyone wishes, donations can be made to any of the environmental groups listed above (cards available at the funeral home 519-822-4731 or send condolences at www.gilbertmacintyreandson.com). A battle bravely fought, a sense of humour that never quit, and a story for every occasion. Ride free now, Grant.
