Ross met Mary Joann Baker in Denver, and fell in love with her and had two beautiful twin daughters together. The love of his life, Mary Joann Baker, was from a wealthy sixth generation Ranching family with quarter horses and cattle who owned many Ranches and thousands of farming acres on the Red River in Oklahoma. Ross was a loving son, brother, father and grandfather.
Ross loved to travel internationally and his brother Dean always reminded his niece Kimberly and her son R.J., that Ross had traveled around the world at least Two times. Ross loved traveling to Texas to visit his daughter Kimberly and his three grandsons for boating and fishing on Possum Kingdom Lake, where she had a summer home. He also loved riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle with friends or riding alone all his adult life. Ross loved his family and made many friends throughout his life. He attended the Temple Sinai growing up. For almost 23 years he would teach his daughter Kimberly and his youngest grandson R.J., the Hebrew alphabet which he always remembered from school and basic Judaism.

May his memory be a blessing to all that have known his love, determination and perseverance.
