Steven Ross Obituary

Steven R. Ross
Ross, Steven R.

June 21, 1955 - November 30, 2018
Born in Marion, Ohio
Resided in Canton, Ohio


May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Steven Richard Ross, 63, died Friday, November 30, in Canton, Ohio.
Steve was born June 21, 1955 in Marion, Ohio, to Phyllis Ann (Jerew) Ross and Lowell Bruce Ross. Steve married Teresa Bill in 1986 and had two children, Steven and Sarah.
Steve worked hard as a certified welder most of his life. At 16 years of age, he hitch-hiked from Ohio to San Francisco searching for meaning. He spent most of his life doing that. He lived a hard life with drug addiction playing a major role, especially after a near death car accident when he was in his 30's. Like many people in the U.S., pain killers became a part of his life.
At the same, time Steve was a remarkable artist and poet. Here is one of his poems from 2008 which is particularly appropriate for this time.

Living a dream…
Never knowing what you mean
Time tickin' by…

Life is so short…
Live each day as though it's the last.
Time tickin' by…

Live each day…
Learning from your mistakes.
Time tickin' by…
Stop livin in the past
Can't find yourself, wonder why?
Time tickin' by…

Believe in something
To begin your life
Time tickin' by…

Time tickin' by…
