Survived by brother Robert Eugene (Gene) Ross (Kathy) and sisters Bonnie Ross McGee, Sandra Ross Meador (Johnny), Vickie Ross Brewington and Freda Stavely Smith (Donnie). While he never had children of his own, he loved and was loved by his many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews. His room mate and best friend, Don Weaver, with whom he shared many interests such as NASCAR racing (Truex), football (go Titans!) and Gaither Homecoming videos. With one TV on sports and the other on Ninja Warriors, they were a great match.
A funeral service will be conducted 12pm Friday, August 2, 2019 at Forest Lawn Funeral Home with Pastor David Steppie officiating. Burial will follow in the Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Visitation with the family will be held Friday from 10am until 12pm.
Duane, as his family called him, was a sweet, gentle man. Always smiling, he never met a stranger. Even in the worst situations he always found something to smile about.
The family would especially like to thank everyone at Signature Healthcare of Erin were he made his home for the last eight years. Their care and kindness was outstanding.
In lieu of flowers we ask that you contribute to: Signature Healthcare, Activities, 278 Rocky Hollow Road, Erin, TN 37061
