It is with great sadness that i pass on the following news to the Z-communty. My son Ross was hospitalized February 16th, for extreme back pain. The resulting tests led to emergency surgery February 21st. The diagnosis is Sarcoma NOS. A very aggressive form of cancer that had invaded his spine, spread to his lungs and caused him to lose the function of his lower body in a very short time. His health has continued to decline and he is currently in Palliative care and given a few weeks to live. Although he attempted to keep up his orders over the past few months he was unable to do it in his condition. At this point he cannot operate his business or direct its affairs.

Respectfully Yours

Frank Corrigan

Thank you Frank. I've known Ross for almost 20 years. He is one of the most polite and caring people I have ever known. He will be remembered fondly. God Speed.

Ross is a gem of a human being. The whole Z community will be effected by this, but it pales in comparison to what I know the family is going through. We can't possibly feel your pain, but my thoughts and prayers go out to you, the Corrigans.

 

May God and his peace be with you all during this time of struggle.

Frank, I'm very sorry to hear about Ross.  You and your family are in my prayers.  If it's not too much trouble, please pass along to Ross my desire for him to know that he touched me and many others in the Z community. He was always receptive to ideas and did due diligence in his engineering and business dealings.  I can thank him for many products I bought from him, sage advice, and just good, thoughtful communications.  I always enjoyed messaging and talking to him.  I hope you and yours can find the joy that is Ross in all of this.  Best Regards, Pete Paraska.
