In Loving Memory of Johnny Mack Ross
Born in Ennis TX
April 3, 1941 ~ August 13, 2014
Johnny Ross, age 73, went to be with his Heavenly Father, August 13, 2014. His long, hard fought, battle with cancer has ended.
He was the owner of B&E Sales Restaurant Equiptment Co. in Dallas TX, and a Dallas Morning News Contractor for many years. He volunteered as a Mesquite Pee-Wee Football Coach for 20 wonderful years. Johnny was a precious and loving husband, a great dad, son, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, brother-in-law, and a friend to so many.
His wit and sense of humor was loved by all. His favorite past time was spent talking about football, the Texas Rangers and playing with his dog, Toto. He will be missed, as he was loved, by many. His last wish and request was for his sons to read and live by God’s Word. He presented each of his sons with a Bible, shortly before his death.
He is survived by his loving wife, of 44 years, Diane Ross.
Five sons, Johnny Dwayne Ross, Robert Lee Ross, Larry Wallace Ross, Mark David Ross, and Johnny Mack Ross Jr.
One daughter, Johnice Ross, and a special daughter, Tammy Smith, who was adopted in their hearts, by Johnny, Diane and family.
He had three daughter-in-laws, Jennifer, Chrystel and Shelly Ross.
Johnny loved and was so proud of his many grandchildren, and two great grandsons.
He had one living sister, Sharon Nichols.
Preceding Johnny in death, is his mother, Estelle Agnew, a sister, Zanna Ross and a brother, Jody Bean.
The Memorial Service will be held at Parkside Baptist Church, 1729 N. Gross Road, Mesquite TX, at 2 PM on August 23, 2014. Presiding Minister: Assistant Pastor Mike Butler
