My condolences to the Ross family and community of New York Mills. Coach Ross influenced the life and values of all he came in contact with. I remember riding my bike to watch the team's summer 2 a day practices in the 60's. I also remember when coach ate at my parent's restaurant on Burrstone Road and my father gave the coach the green light to discipline me, like he needed one. Being a retired Navy Veteran I feel Coach's passing on Veteran's day for a WWII Marine is of great significance. Rest in peace Coach Ben Ross.
