Ross was a lifelong resident of the Metro Jackson area and was a member of Pinelake Church in Brandon. He was a graduate of Clinton High School and Mississippi College. He was employed as an Information Systems Manager at Southern Farm Bureau Casualty Insurance Company where he had worked for 26 years.

Ross was a devoted and loving husband to his wife Missy and to his children Kyle, McKenna, Collin, and Conner. During Ross' 15 years of leadership with Boy Scouts of America, he has helped develop more than 33 Eagle Scouts, including his son Kyle Parker. Ross was guiding Collin and Conner to follow in those footsteps. Ross was a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity efforts in the metro area, and also served as leader of the Divorce Care ministry at Pinelake Church. Ross' legacy will continue to extend far beyond these years of service, as everyone who knew Ross was forever influenced by his godly values. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
