Obituary

John Laird Ross 04/06/1946-03/17/2020 Edgecomb- John Ross, 73, passed away on Tuesday, March
17,2020 at home surrounded by his family after a long battle with cancer.

John was born in Recife, Brazil to Archie and Katharine Ross who were living there while on
business. They moved back to the states a few years later and he grew up in Ardmore, PA for most of his
youth. He spent his high school years at Bordentown Military Institute then went on to the University of
Toledo. It was while there he met and married the love of his life he affectionately called St. Sue.
After graduating from U of Toledo and ROTC he was assigned to Schofield Barracks in Hawaii
where he and his new bride spent one glorious year that neither of them forgot. 1st Lt John Ross was
sent to Vietnam in 1969 where he was awarded the bronze star. The discipline and patriotism he
learned in the Army never left him, as friends and family will attest. It made him amply prepared for his
next 42 years in the private sector. John made his career in the medical device industry which
culminated as Global VP, Health Economics for Medtronic and later KCI-Kinetic Concepts.

In 2011, John and St. Sue retired to Edgecomb, ME where he spent his summers at his family
cottage on Squirrel Island to be near both their daughters and four grandchildren. He volunteered at the
Maine Maritime Museum as a docent which he thoroughly enjoyed and treasured. Their last
adventure’s were spent on a yearly trip to Hawaii with Sue’s sister and brother-in-law, Beth & Doug
Henson. They looked forward each year to returning to where their love story truly began. One of their
favorite things to do would be to sit out on the moonlit veranda nightly, while John would serenade his
guests with songs of John Denver whilst playing either his banjo, guitar or ukulele.

John is survived by his wife Sue Ross; daughter Jennifer Ross Stoll and her husband Matt of Cary,
NC; daughter Cara Ross Gaffney and her husband Michael of Edgecomb, ME; four grandchildren,
Madeline Stoll of Washington DC, Christian Stoll of Cary, NC, Finnegan Gaffney of Edgecomb, ME and
Ross Gaffney of Edgecomb, ME, his sisters, Katharine Cole of Elberta, AL, Carol Linfoot of Paoli, PA and
Robin Schoen Bushman and her husband Ralph Bushman of Wilton, NH, his sister-in-law Beth Henson
and her husband Doug Henson of Southboro MA; and his brother-in-law Eric Seidel and his wife Donna
Seidel of Tuscon, AZ as well as many nieces and nephews he adored and was extremely proud of.

Due to current circumstances there will be a memorial on Squirrel Island at a later date.
