Dick L. Ross

Dick Lee Ross, 75, of Antwerp, Ohio went to be with the Lord Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at Parkview Hospital, Fort Wayne.

Dick was born in Bryan, Ohio on December 8, 1944, a son of the late Monta Lee (Stell) and Leo Ford Ross.

He proudly served in the Ohio National Guard for 6 years and retired from BF Goodrich after 41 years.  He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and served as an elder at the Harlan Church of Christ.  He was a loyal fan to the Ohio State Football team and enjoyed cheering them on from his living room and loved taking his grandkids to the spring games.  He will be remembered most for the love that he had for the Lord and his family.

Dick will be sadly missed by the love of his life, Carolyn (Thorp) whom he married Nov. 12, 1966; daughters, Shari (Michael) Miller & Stacey (Jeff) Delagrange; siblings, Robert (Marilyn) Ross & Kathleen (Sam) Rice; grandchildren, Jenna (Collin) Buchanan, Jared (Lina), Jaclyn & Jordan (Jessica) Delagrange, Alyssa (Joe) McKinley, Alyson, Austin & Andrew Miller; and great grandchildren Selah, Monroe, Eden, and soon-to-arrive baby boy McKinley.

Viewing is Friday, Dec. 11, 2020, 2 - 4 & 6 - 8 pm at Harlan Church of Christ, 17108 IN-37, Harlan, IN 46743.

Due to state mandate, guests must wear masks at all times, maintain social distancing, and refrain from contact to keep everyone safe while participating in Dick's viewing.

Memorials are to Harlan Christian School or Woodburn Christian Children's Home.
