Dr. Albert Ross Deep

October 1, 1935 — April 21, 2024

After a long battle with illness, Albert Ross Deep passed away on April 21, at the age of 88. 

A proud father, grandfather, and recent great grandfather, he always worked hard and spoke fondly of his family. 

Survived by his former spouse Janet (Cleary) Deep and children Ross (Carolyn) Deep, Bruce (Trish Van Buren) Deep, James (Lynn Borysiuk) Deep and Mark (Sharon) Deep. 

Grandfather/“GrandGuy” to Tabitha Deep, Serena Deep, Nicole (Greg Clifford) Deep, Michael Deep, Jonathan Kilpatrick, Matthew Borysiuk Deep, Liam Deep, and Jordan Deep. Great-Grandfather of Callie Clifford. 

Survived by beloved siblings Alice Braithwaite, Alec Deep and Nellie Abraham, and many in-laws, nieces and nephews. Pre-deceased by sister Nancy Battagello and parents Abdo and Annie Deep. 

Born in Windsor, Albert left home at 17 to attend Medical School at Queen’s University, where he met his future wife Janet (Cleary) Deep. 

After graduation, he completed his internship and residency at the Montreal General Hospital. Then went on to work in cardiac research at Harvard and the Mass General Hospital in Boston. Specializing in Internal Medicine and Cardiology, he was fortunate to learn from and work with some of the best minds in medicine. 

Dad started his cardiology practice in Toronto, where he lived for most of his life - recently retiring and settling in Barrie. 

In his medical practice, he dutifully treated his patients and stayed on the leading edge, always prioritizing their health and well-being. In the early days, Dad helped people in underserved areas by visiting them in their homes - earning appreciation and a sense of loyalty from his patients. 

Dad had a quick wit and sharp sense of humour. He enjoyed gardening, hosting family dinners, cheering on Toronto sports teams, and boating at the cottage. He was known to dote on his grandchildren - arriving with much fanfare with over the top presents and generous amounts of candy and fine treats. 

Our Dad was determined to live independently and did so, staying strong and even driving up until the end. Always a fighter, Dad battled illness courageously and continued to live his life the way he wanted to.

Though he has left this earth, he is likely driving around the great beyond in a Caddy, sipping a Coke with a big smile on his face. 

Thank you to all of the medical professionals at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie who provided such great care over these past few months. 

In lieu of flowers, in memory donations can be made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation

or to a charity of your choice.

A private celebration of life will be held for immediate family.
