March 3, 1951 ~ June 15, 2018 (age 67)

Charles Edward Ross Jr., age 67 of Centerville, formerly of Texas, passed away Friday, June 15, 2018 at his home.

 Charles was born on March 3, 1951 in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Charles Edward Ross Sr. and Alice Marie (Cogley) Ross.  As a child, his family moved to Texas, and he resided there until he retired in June of 2012, when he moved back to Centerville.

 Charles enjoyed gardening, horses, and working as a farm hand in Texas.  After retirement, he decided he needed to do something to stay busy, so he became a house painter, and was quite good at it.

 Charles is survived by his siblings, numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
