Moncton RCMP officer remembered

The congregation at Hillside Baptist Church in Moncton gathered this morning to pray for the family, friends and co-workers of RCMP constable Dave Ross.Ross was one of three RCMP officers gunned down last Wednesday before a city-wide manhunt for the suspect.He was a member of the congregation and met his wife in a bible study group there. Friends and family gathered at today’s service to mourn their loss, and to try to begin healing.“Everything he did was with a great deal of passion and commitment,” said Amy Klassen, a friend of Const. Ross. “He was merciful, never once did I ever feel judged or put down and I believe others would say the same about Dave. He was also a man of God.”A full regimental funeral will be held for Ross and fellow Mounties Fabrice Gevaudan and Douglas Larche on Tuesday. The two other officers injured in the attack have since been released from hospital. read more
