There is a HUGE hole left by Mr David Ross' demise. He was a man of stature and leadership, an icon in our city! The Ross-Clayton Funeral Home Family has always been such a caring, professional institution in the way they conducted their business; no stone was ever left unturned! That dedication, thoroughness, and professionalism was displayed with ALL the dealings our family has ever had with them. We attribute that directly to the knowledge and foresight of Mr Ross. His monumental presence will GREATLY be missed! May God continue to strengthen his wife (our mom's formal student), her children, & dedicated staff at Ross & clayton. Submitted with our deepest, most heartfelt sympathy --- The Lancaster Family (Lisa, Mark, Al, & Ann)
