Obituary for Ellis Rae Ross

Sunrise March 23, 1932 Ohio County, Kentucky; Sunset March 9, 2018 Lexington, Kentucky.

Beloved husband, father and grandfather. Ellis graduated from Drakesboro, Kentucky, High School and the University of Louisville Southern Police Institute. He was a veteran, serving as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He later joined the Kentucky State Police, serving from 1958 to 1987, retiring as Lieutenant. Ellis enjoyed working with his hands whether it was building an addition to a house or making car repairs. He loved sports and especially enjoyed golfing in his later years. Of all his accomplishments and activities, his first love was always family. He relished spending time with his children – especially when they brought his grandchildren to visit. Above all, he cherished his wife of sixty-five years.
Ellis was preceded in death by his parents, Aaron T. and Geneva Brown Ross; brothers William T. Ross and Robert P. Ross; and sisters Virginia Spinks, Margaret Sumner, Marjorie McDonald, Elsie Mae Ulrich.
Ellis’ memory will be cherished by his wife, Wanda Clark Ross; his son Gerald (Debra) Ross; daughter Geneve (Ron) Suber; and grandchildren Jason (Meagan) Ross; Anna Ross; Gregory Suber; great-granddaughter Analyn Rae; one sister Rebecca (Harry) Baerveldt; and a host of nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army would be appreciated.
