Eddie attended Church Street School. He later moved to Washington, DC, and after several years there, he returned to Thomasville. He was a faithful member of Church of God of Prophecy until his health declined.
Eddie Ross loved his family; he was a good husband and father. He was a true sports fan, especially for the “Carolina Panthers”. He also loved golfing and boxing. Friends and family will fondly remember Eddie always being prepared to box with both fists in the air. This was a tip from Mike Tyson, to always be prepared. Eddie loved people and people loved him. He was easy to talk to! Family and friends would often come to him for advice. Eddie’s passion was washing windows in which he turned into a career. He was employed with several companies which allowed him the opportunity to see panoramic views of Washington, DC and Thomasville, NC.

“Now the laborers task is over, Now the battle day is past;
Now upon the farther shore, Lands the voyager at last.”
