Those who knew him best would describe him as a devout Catholic, a gentle giant, charming, wise, generous, and that he never met a stranger.
Ambrose's family would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington for their excellent care of Ambrose.
A Catholic Mass will be held in his honor at an undetermined date.
