Obituary for John "Jack" D. Ross

Our loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, John D. Ross entered his heavenly home on October 4, 2017. He was born January 5, 1925 in Kalkaska, MI, son of the late John W. and Nettie (Lense) Ross. Jack was retired from General Motors after 42 years of service; a former employee for ACE Hardware, Grand Ledge, and was a veteran of WWII, serving in the U.S. Army Air Corp. He was member of the Cole-Briggs American Legion Post 48 and V.F.W. Post 3293, and served on the Memorial Honor Guard. He was a devoted member of the Grand Ledge Baptist Church, where he established and pitched for their softball team for 30 years. John also was a little league softball coach and a current sponsor of the little league baseball team, Ross Raiders in Grand Ledge; he also enjoyed working the chain gang at the Grand Ledge Football games for 40 years.

Jack is going to be greatly missed by his loving family: son John (Monica) and daughters Janna (Daniel) Neuenschwander and Jeanne (Kevin) Garthe; nine grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Madonna Verene (2013), daughter JoAnn Richards (2012), grandson Paul Richards (2017), one brother, and six sisters.
