    I worked with Ross for over 30 years and he was a great guy and very knowledgeable employee. He was always willing to help. He will be missed, glad he had time for family and retirement.

    I just saw this and I’m a loss. I know it’s been a long while since I’ve seen either of you but I have many fond memories of bowling and Monterrey House from my childhood.

    Prayers for you your family while you navigate through this tragic loss.

    My condolences to the family. Knew Ross from elementary through high school. Such a nice guy who always had a smile on his face. Remember his smile and freckles.
