Donald passed away on the afternoon of December 24, 2020 at Hannibal

Regional Hospital.

He was born June 11, 1953 in Hannibal, the son of Weldon Wilson and

Alice Evelyn Hannick Ross Sr. Survivors include three brothers; Jim

(Bert) Ross and Kenny (Terry) Ross both of Center and John (Vickie) Ross

of Paris, four sisters; Doris (Kenneth) Latta and Donald's twin sister

Donna (Rusty) Boston both of Paris, Martha Poole of Philadelphia and

Claudia (Jerry) McGuire of Greenfield, one half brother Jackie (Karen)

Ross of Montecello, IA, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
Donald was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Weldon

Wilson Ross Jr.
Donald was a lifetime area resident. He was a Christian and enjoyed

attending both Center Baptist Church and New Oakland Baptist Church. He

was a 1971 graduate of Mark Twain High School. He worked many years at

Intermet Diecasting in Monroe City. He also worked as a custodian at

Paris High School and New London Elementary. He especially loved his

time working alongside the teachers and students at New London.
Donald loved the outdoors. When he was in good health he loved

helping others with yard work and gardening. He spent months moving and

clearing brush around his parents' lake using his John Deere mower like

a bulldozer. His hard work and contribution is something the family will

always appreciate as it serves as the gathering site for the Ross Family

For the people who knew Donald best, there wasn't anything with

gears and wheels that he couldn't tear up. He enjoyed collecting classic

model cars as much as being behind the wheel of one. He had a large

collection of vinyl records. He also liked antiques and old coins.

Donald will be most remembered for his kindness and devotion to help

others. He was a humble soul who gave selflessly, never wanting

recognition. In his passing to continue helping others, memorial

contributions can be made to the Ralls County Elementary in care of

Bienhoff Funeral Home P.O. Box 427 Perry, MO 63462.
