SCI BC pays tribute to long-serving BC Paraplegic Foundation (BCPF) Board Member, Ross McDonald, who passed away on January 19.  Ross joined the BCPF’s volunteer board in 2001, holding many key positions, including Board Chair, over his 18-year tenure.  

Ross gave his time in support of many causes and initiatives. He did so with a dry sense of humour and the ability to cut straight to the point. We are grateful for the contributions he made to the BCPF’s success and its vital role in supporting SCI BC’s mission during his time on the board. A key accomplishment during the latter period of his BCPF board service was to champion the move of the board’s funds to Connor Clark and Lunn, a move that has paid dividends with respect to operational efficiency and growth of the BCPF’s funds. 

His presence on the BCPF board was missed after he stepped down in 2019. His presence in our community has been missed since his passing in January. However, our appreciation for his support and guidance over the years continues.   

Our thoughts and best wishes go to his family, friends, fellow board members, and to all whose lives he touched.  

A memorial service will be held for Ross at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2024 at the West Vancouver United Church, 2062 Esquimalt Avenue, West Vancouver.
