He had also worked at Sierra Pacific, Brumfield Construction and De Paul Logging. He was also a member of Carpenterâ€™s Union. Ross was always tall for his age and his Grandma would always remind him not to be a bully, Ross took her advice to heart. He was at least 6â€™5â€ tall but had a gentle, loving soul. He made friends easily and leaves behind many who will miss him dearly. There are many, many stories about Ross that will always make his friends and family laugh. Please remember Ross with a smile.
