Patrick James Ross
Memorial Services for Patrick James Ross will be held Sunday, August 5, 2018 beginning at 1:00 p.m. until time of services at 4 p.m. in the Chapel of Louisiana Funeral Services & Crematory, 108 Hardware Road, Broussard, LA.
Patrick James Ross, a resident of Lafayette, formerly of Abbeville, passed away on August 1, 2018 at his home at the age of 72.
Pat was born on August 12, 1945, the only child of James Grant Ross and Annette LaPorte Ross. He grew up in Abbeville and graduated from Abbeville High School in 1963. He attended several colleges before he began his career as a geophysical permit agent. His health forced him to retire in 2009.
Until the end of his life he retained his charming sense of humor. He could make anyone laugh with his stories and his witty sarcasm. Throughout his life Pat made and kept many friends who remained dear to him. He will be greatly missed by all of them--some of whom are waiting to greet him in Heaven.
Pat loved fishing, hunting and going to the movies. He especially enjoyed beach vacations, camping at Toledo Bend, and trips to the casino with his “buds”.
He will be sadly missed by his wife of 45 years, Marsha Courtier Ross, his children Grant Allen Ross (Allison), Jennifer R. Primeaux, and Neil Lawrence Ross (Crystal). He left behind 7 grandchildren, Olivia Ross, Colin Ross, Emma Ross, Kohen Primeaux, Jax Primeaux, Jordan Desormeaux, and Reese Thibeaux.
Pat was predeceased by his mother, Annette L. Ross, his father, James (Jimmy) Ross, his father-in-law Charles Courtier, his paternal grandparents, James Ross Sr. and Ethel Ross of Shawnee, Oklahoma, his maternal grandparents Theodore LaPorte and Mathilde Dutel LaPorte of Abbeville, LA., and a cousin Glenn LaPorte also of Abbeville, and several uncles and aunts.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The family wishes to express sincere thanks to Grace Hospice for the compassionate care they provided. We would also like to thank Chelly LeFleur of Kindred Home Health. She was our “go to” nurse for over a year who helped Pat cope with his many issues. A big thanks to the staff at Fresenius West Dialysis Center.
