Obit: Kenneth Ross, 73

December 22, 2012


Kenneth L. Ross, 73, of Scottville, died December 20, 2012 at Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids. He was born August 1, 1939 in Fountain to Ernest and Sybella (Brackett) Ross. Ken graduated from Custer High School in 1957 and received his Bachelor’s Degree in surveying from Ferris State University. Following graduation from Ferris, he enlisted in the United States Army and served honorably for four years. On April 15, 1967 he married Karen Lundquist and, shortly thereafter, began Ross Surveys, and served as the Mason County Surveyor for over 35 years. He enjoyed his job and was proud to serve the citizens of the county. Along with his work, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, golf, spending time with friends, and landscaping; but nothing gave him more joy than being with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was an avid follower of the professional Detroit sports teams and the University of Michigan Wolverines.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife Karen, sons Kelly (Robin) of Atlanta, Kyle (Diana) of Honor, and grandchildren Jacob, Austin and Aleiya.
