This country has lost another fine Man. I worked with him & for him at the Shell Plant in the summers of 1961-63. Such a gentleman,and a smart one too. Happy to have known such a person..Danny Adams,Don Mackey,John Penny& I carpooled with Raz and enjoyed every mile of it. If their is a Gas plant in Heaven,I know that he is at least Head Operator. He is in a good place now.

Ginger, Ross, Tara and family,
While I cannot imagine what you are feeling at the moment, I do hope that peace and comfort find you. And, though I never met Mr. Ross, I always loved hearing stories about him, his place on the mountain, his Mabel and his mountain bear. Sending good thoughts your way.
