On Feb. 1, 2021, an angel came to take Michael P. Ross home to his Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
Michael entered this world on Aug. 30, 1956. He attended Holy Rosary and Billings Central H.S., lettering in football. On Oct. 28, 1973, he was in a debilitating accident that changed the course of his life. While he didn’t live his life the way most of us have, he touched many lives, encouraged many people and made his mind known by his signature gestures and unique sense of humor.
Preceding him in death are his father, J.D. “Dave” Ross; his mother, Vivian V Smith Ross; and his sister, Mary K Ross Kossmann. Surviving family members are Anne M Gerke, sister, Billings; John D. Ross (wife Kathey), brother, Lakewood, Washington; Katie Carey, John Ross, Janet Zacharias and David Kossmann, his nieces and nephews.
Services will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary. Burial at Holy Cross Cemetery will follow the service.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the caretakers and staff who assisted him throughout his life. Memorial donations can be made to Billings Central HS scholarship fund.
