Mary, and Family I am so sorry for your loss. Ross was a great man who I admired very much ! I will always remember the good times at the lake! I remember him and Dad and Pepper always working on projects and the times they had together. Ross touched my Dad very much as well as you Mary. I always enjoyed to come over to Deer hunt and visit at the house on E Highway. I loved that house He was an excellent carpenter and wood worker. He was a good Christian man who done so much for others. My Condolences and prayers to you. May God 's healing hands reach out and comfort your family at this time. God bless you all.

Uncle Ross, I had the pleasure to visit with you only a few time, one of the times I recall is being on your back porch watching the wildlife of West Missouri and drinking ice tea. Looking forward to doing it again.

Thank you for being my daddy. The world lost a wonderful soul the day God called you home. I am eternally grateful for the time you were loaned to us. I could not have asked for a better or more loving dad. I’m so glad you are happy, healthy and whole again. Give my brothers and nephew a hug and kiss for me. Don’t worry about mom, we will continue to look out for her, love her and take care of her. I will miss your hugs and can’t wait to get another one of your unforgettable hugs 😘. I love you to the moon and back. All my love, daddy, until we meet again......
