Jeffrey Burton Ross passed away August 2, 2020 at his home in Colusa, California after a long battle with cancer. Jeffrey was born on September 14, 1957 and was raised in Colusa, where he enjoyed playing football at Colusa High School. Among other hobbies, he enjoyed fishing and building and flying remote-controlled model airplanes. Jeff especially enjoyed working with his father, Edwin “Ed” Ross, helping in the construction of the Ross Development housing project that surrounds the Colusa Golf Course. After his father’s passing, Jeff continued to work in construction until a fall resulted in a serious back injury, which plagued him the rest of his life and prevented further construction work. Jeffrey was preceded in death by his father Edwin G. Ross, his brother Michael, and his sister Patricia “Patty” Manor. He is survived by his wife Mary “Missy”; his sons Edwin, Jeffrey, Jr., and David; his mother Marilyn Ross of Colusa; and his sisters Pamela Johnson (Dennis) of Arbuckle and Cynthia Donnelly of Bend, Oregon.
