Although he was ever abashed about telling me all I had wrong in setting up the Polytechnic we became good friends.
Ross was a truly unique man; independent and full of irrepressible energy and opinions and I will miss him. Farewell Ross. You served us well as potter, protector of the heritage of Wanganui and as a friend.

Dear Michelle-Anyon mob, every single one of you has a distinct spirit, like the hand-hewn home of that rascal brother and father, Ross. When I think of my mate, I also celebrate you all.
I can still smell the coffee brewing, and the cigarette smoke, as I hug him close.
Thank you Ross!

Sending aroha to Ben, Jack, Finn & Tallulah and to all Ross' whanau & friends today. Ross, his mahi and his intentions will not be forgotten and his great support of the arts in Whanganui will live on. It is a privilege to have spent time with such a good person and a kind friend. Rest peacfully e hoa, Dylan

Thinking of you all, love from the Netherlands. Remembering the uniqueness of Ross, his creativity and his passion. His inspiration… I can still hear him say (when we were considering buying the building - later Tearaway, now the I-site), “Don’t worry about what you will do with it - just buy it!”
Sending my love
