He loved to sing the songs at church and especially Christmas songs. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He loved being around his brothers and sisters and playing games with them. He loved to play Charades and was the life of the party when he played. All of the family loved having Ross entertain them.
