Obituary for Wayne Ross

Wayne Crawford Ross, resident of Pioneer Manor Nursing Home in Hay Springs and formerly of Rushville, entered into his Heavenly home on May 10, 2018 at the age of 87.

Wayne was born on March 25, 1931 in Rushville to George Ross and Jessie Keethler Ross. When Wayne was 7 years old, his mother married Earl King who raised Wayne from then on.

At the age of 19, Wayne was drafted into the United States Marines during the Korean War and was stationed in San Diego, Camp Pendleton and then in Japan where he was based near Mt. Fuji. He was honorably discharged and was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal and the United Nations Medal.

When he returned to Rushville, Wayne worked on the Fawn lake Ranch where he used horses to feed hay to the cattle during the winter months, and also worked for Harold (Hub) Beguin before going to work for Sam Hinn; helping them with calving fencing and haying while living in the bunkhouse. He worked for Hinn's for over 50 years.

When Wayne developed knee troubles, the doctor told him he had to quit working on the ranch so in 2004 he became a resident of Pioneer Manor Nursing Home in Hay Springs where he lived until his death. Wayne enjoyed his life there and interacting with the staff and other residents. He liked teasing someone every chance he got, playing Bingo and cards and other activities.

Wayne is survived by his sister Eva Johnston of Scottsbluff, many nieces & nephews, cousins, and the friends and nursing staff at Pioneer Manor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Dean Ross, Dale King, Jim King, sister Arlene Chambless, step brothers, Derryl, Lester, Kenneth and Bob King, and step sister Betty Bennett.

Wayne will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
