Raymond Dale Ross, age 64 of Coffeyville, Kansas passed away on September 20, 2018 at his home surrounded by his family.

Raymond was born on March 7, 1954 in Coffeyville to Gene Autry Ross and Madge Irene (Timmerman) Ross. Raymond grew up in Coffeyville graduating from FKHS in 1972. A year after graduation he moved to Chanute, Kansas to work in a woodworking shop, learning to use all of the tools needed to build custom cabinets. He had various jobs over the years but that was by far his favorite. Raymond used his woodworking skills to build custom crosses that he would take to hospitals to give to patients, and to his church family. The kids at church were so excited to receive a cross from Raymond that they would often go looking for him to get one. Recently he used old celling fan blades to make crosses.

On April 18, 1986 Raymond married Janet Elaine Dobson, in Miami, Oklahoma. Together they made their home in Coffeyville. Raymond thanked God always for the love of his wife, his family and his friends and for God helping him right up to his last day. He was also thankful for his faithful dogs, especially Summer Dawn who helped him to keep going till the end. Raymond was die hard baseball fan, rooting on his favorite team the New York Yankee's. Every year he looked forward to watching the Little League World Series, trying to predict what team would win. Until recently he had collected quite a collection of baseball memorabilia.

Those left to cherish Raymond's memory are his wife, Janet of the home; sisters, Phyllis Dunham and Leona Vaughn both of Coffeyville; cousins, Linda McFall and her husband Roger also of Coffeyville, Ronnie White and his wife Crystal of S. Coffeyville; best friend, Jim Oskinson of Coffeyville; a host of nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephew as well as a host of friends. In addition to his parents, he is now at rest with, a niece, Stephanie Pruitt.

Memorial service will be held on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at Coffeyville First Nazarene Church, 2300 W. 1st St., Coffeyville, Kansas at 10:30 am with Pastor Ford Hall officiating. Inurnment will follow at Robbins Cemetery west of Coffeyville. Visitation will be held on Monday, September 24, 2018 with the family receiving friends from 6 to 8 pm at Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel, 2405 Woodland Ave., Coffeyville. The family has suggested memorial contributions to be made payable to Coffeyville Friends of Animals, P O Box 1654, Coffeyville, or contributions may be left in care of the chapel.
