Stevensville – Clifford A. Ross, 68, passed away Monday, April 17, 2023 at home peacefully surrounded by his family after a short battle with cancer. He was born July 30, 1954 in Wichita Falls, Texas to Edward and Shirley Ross. He graduated from Stevensville High School. After high school he joined the army and was stationed in Fort Lewis, WA.
Cliff married Carol (Jackson) July 14, 1979 and resided in Stevensville, MT. He worked for Cenex in Stevensville, MT, then worked at White Pine and Sash in Missoula, MT. He started his truck driving career in 1987 and retired after 32 years of hauling grain and lumber. After retirement he enjoyed cooking breakfast for the grandchildren and neighborhood kids and wrangling his every growing collection of farm cats. He was very much involved in his grandkid’s lives, and looked forward to spending time driving them to school every morning. Cliff was also a connoisseur of cooking, if you never tried his carrot cake, you really missed out. His nieces and nephews would come from far and wide to eat some carrot cake. He was always willing to share his knowledge and taste test whatever dessert someone happened to bring by.
Cliff is survived by his wife Carol of 43 years, daughters Candi (Kevin) Hove and Celena (John) Bamberger, 10 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, brothers Mike (Bev) Ross, Dennis (Debbie) Ross, sister Holly (Ed) Schlaud sister-in-law Sheryl (Dan) Pond brother-in-laws Robert, Jeff (Allison) Jackson, George (Kaye) Jackson and many nieces and nephews.
His funeral service will be held at Whitesitt Funeral Home on Sunday, April 23, 2023 at 2:00 P.M. Celebration of life will be at Ambrose Community Park following the service.
