Billy "JD" Ross
November 8, 1940 – January 8, 2021
Billy “Jd” Ross, 80, of Norman, passed away on January 8 peacefully at home.
Jd was born on November 8, 1940 to Sidney and Reba Ross in Oklahoma City, OK. Jd enlisted in the US Air Force in September, 1959. After 20 years of service, Jd retired in September 1979 as a master sergeant. During his enlistment he was decorated with the Air Force Commendation Medal. After retiring from the Air Force Jd worked as a foreman for Oklahoma Natural Gas and retired after 21 years.
On June 14, 1960 Jd married his sweetheart Monzetta “Monty” Ray. For the last sixty years she has been by his side in all of life’s adventures. Together they had three children, nine grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
Jd loved to hunt and fish. He looked forward to deer season every year, often preparing for it months in advance. Jd love to spend time outdoors. He created many lasting memories with his family from camping trips and road trips to simple evenings at home cooking on the grill or sitting outside sharing his wisdom. He was always patient with his children and grandchildren as he taught them so much including how to hunt, fish, work on cars, cook, garden and so much more.
He loved collecting pictures of his family. Anyone who knew Jd, knew that his family meant more to him than anything else in the world. His favorite saying was “I love you mostest”. He was unendingly proud of his children and grandchildren and they knew they were loved beyond measure.
The hole left by his absence is impossible to fill. He was dearly loved and will forever be in our hearts and memories
