In the twenty years I worked with Ross, he was always kind, knowledgeable, fun and a pleasure to be with!

Hi there

My name is Janice Baird. On behalf of Ross's friends from WEX NZ, I am

setting up this 'Give a Little' page on behalf of our friend Ross Wilson.

We used to work together at FAL (Financial Automation Limited, Grafton Auckland) and WEX (WEX NZ Limited, Grafton Auckland)

Sadly Ross had a brain tumour some three years ago.

It seemed to go away, but has come back. Ross was hospitalised recently with a stroke.

Ross is no longer able to work, and indeed is now unable to speak.

His ability to communicate is very limited. His doctors have only given him a limited life expectancy.

He is being looked after by his lovely wife Saori.

Saori is indeed facing a mountain of challenges.

She is getting help from Hospital and Harbour Hospice staff to look after Ross.

They have a little boy of 6, Rion.

Saori's father in Japan has just died - after illness (not covid-19 related).

Individual messages can be relayed to Janice Baird at

I'd suggest only a photo of you, and a one sentence message - we don't want to overwhelm.

Please be generous.

Janice Roadtrip's involvement (page creator)

Saori's husband Ross Wilson is terminally ill. I have worked with Ross, off and on, for twenty years at WEX NZ. We want to offer a money gift to Saori, and their son Rion aged 6, to help her through this time.

Use of funds

The money will be used to help support Saori as she seeks to make Ross

as comfortable as possible, and to help her with further expenses in the future.

    Was great to know you Ross - your passion for all things related to motorcycles was something that I always enjoyed
