Vernon E. Ross Sr., founder of the Ross Hollywood Chapel funeral home, began his career as a funeral director in 1914 when he moved to Portland, Oregon. After serving in both World Wars, he came home and established Ross Hollywood Chapel in 1942.
Annual Veterans Day Parade
During his career, he served as the deputy coroner for Multnomah County. He was very active in many civic organizations including many veterans affairs. In 1975 Vernon purchased a small triangle of land just outside of his funeral home, built a veterans memorial and began the Ross Hollywood Veterans Day Parade to honor all veterans. He held the annual event until his death, which tragically occurred on November 11, 1983, the day of the Veterans Day Parade. Ross Hollywood Chapel continues the hold this special event every Veterans Day.
Continued service after merging
Since Vernon’s death, other funeral establishments have merged with Ross Hollywood Chapel and it has become Ross Hollywood Chapel and Killingsworth St. Johns Lombard Little Chapel of the Chimes.
