He was born on September 7, 1955 in Oklahoma City, OK to Jimmy and Mary Ross. His father was a Master Sergeant in the Air Force. The family moved frequently residing in Oklahoma, Flordia, England, California, and South Carolina. He graduated from Stall High School.
Mr. Ross was a hardworking, loving, selfless, and devoted family man. A loving husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed fishing, working on cars, working on his garden, old western shows, his black lab, Gracie Mae, watching his oldest grandson’s soccer and t-ball games, and spending time with his family.
He married the love of his life, Lori, on December 31, 1985 in their home. He was a Master Electrician at H&R Allen. He was a loving man who devoted his life to his family and was extremely proud of his two children and two grandchildren. He’d lend anyone a helping hand without expecting something in return. His love, selflessness, passion, and kindness touched everyone’s life that he met.
Survivors include his wife, Lori, two children, Robert Ross Jr. and fiance Charisy Hardin, and Alexandra Ross; his mother, Mary Ross; two brothers, Jimmy “Scotty” Ross and wife Raven Ross, and Chris Ross and wife Pattie Ross; and sister Susie Boyd and husband Paul Boyd; two grandchildren, Ethan Kinard and Luca Ross Kinard; and other relatives and friends.
