Ross was unfailingly committed to his family, his work, his Harley, and the Houston Astros, and could beat just about anyone at a game of Trivial Pursuit. A devoted husband, father, and grandfather, Ross is survived by his wife, DiAnna Gaulding; sister, LuAnn Matzas; daughters, JoDee Engle and Marie Foster; and four grandchildren, Katie, David, Madeline, and Jillian.
