Ross was born on April 14, 1934 in Winder to Odis and Flora Rutledge Wall. He was a graduate of Winder-Barrow High School where he played football, back in the good old days when there wasn’t any facemasks.
Ross proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. He was an insurance agent for over 35 years, first starting with Gulf Life who eventually became American General Life. He served as a deacon for Central Baptist Church.
Ross enjoyed working outside whether it was gardening or mowing his grass. He enjoyed mowing the grass so much that he would volunteer to mow the grass for his neighbors. But, his biggest joy in life was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
