Jerry Wayne Ross
December 20, 2013, 9:00 am by Florence Edwards
Wayne was married to Judi Ross for 17 years and had three children. He recently announced his engagement to Elizabeth and was said to get married in April.
Wayne spent most of his life helping his grandparents (Herschel and Opal Ellett) on the Ellett Ranch-a place he called home and loved to be. He proudly served the United States Army for four years, 1986-1989. While in the army he traveled and lived in many states. Wayne currently owned a very successful construction company called "Wayne’s Welding and Construction.”
Wayne was a wise man with few words, give the shirt off his back, heart of gold, with a bit of a wild side kind of man. He loved his ranch and tending to his cattle and horses. He also loved hunting, fishing and spending time with his family. Wayne was a wonderful Dad and will truly be missed by his children.
He is survived by his father Jerry Van Ross, son Jerry James Ross and wife Melissa of Burnet, daughter Melissa Dooley and husband Bryan of Burnet, and daughter Chelsea Ross of Briggs. Grandchildren Hayden, Haylie and Baby(on the way) Ross, and soon to be here- Walker Dooley. He is also survived by his sister Joy Purdy and husband Bernard of Round Rock, brother Herschel Cone and wife Lisa of Lockhart, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
He is preceded in death by his mother Jessie Ellett, brother Jerry Dee Shorten, grandparents Herschel and Opal Ellett, Charlie and Rita Ross, and fiancée Elizabeth Nigrelli.
