Thomas Ross 09/30/2022

Thomas “Tom” Ross passed away on Friday, September 30th surrounded by his family. He was born in Hammond, WI on January 20th, 1955, and graduated from St. Croix Central High School in 1973. Tom spent 42 loving years married to his wife Linda Ross (Gregorius) and had two sons, Jon and Trevor Ross. They raised their family and resided in River Falls, WI. He worked a long career in Baldwin, WI as a Shipping Supervisor for Donaldson Corporation. Tom enjoyed playing golf, cards, and board games with his friends and family. As a big Wisconsin sports fan, you could always find him cheering on the Brewers, Packers or Badgers! Tom is remembered as a kind-hearted, thoughtful, and funny husband, father, brother and friend. He touched the lives of many in the River Falls, Hammond and Baldwin communities and will be missed dearly.
Tom is survived by his wife Linda Ross, his sons Jon (Ashley) and Trevor (Charlotte), brothers Dennis (Barb) and Norm (Beth), many nieces and nephews, and two future grandchildren on the way. He will be greeted in heaven by his parents Toni and Jack, and his sister, Jonna.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, you plant a tree in Tom’s honor either at your home, favorite location, or via the Arbor Day Foundation.  A Memorial Service was held on Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 2:30 pm at St. Bridget Catholic Church (211 E Division St.) in River Falls.  Visitation was also Thursday from 1:00-2:30 pm at the church.  Private family interment will be in Greenwood Cemetery.  Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.

    I worked with Tom many years at Donaldson and though fondly of him. He was a really good man. I enjoyed talking about the Brewers with him. He made me smile each time I saw him. I am so sorry for your loss. Rest In Peace my friend.

    I was so saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. The Ross family was a big part of my childhood, and we shared many good times together. After the loss of my brother, Jack, Toni, the boys, and Jonna, were a constant source of support, showing up for a visit just when we needed it. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss, and I pray that you are surrounded by love and support in the days ahead.

    I remember Tom as a quality young man who played on my basketball team when I coached at SCC. His clutch free throw shooting kept us in a game against Colfax which we eventually won in triple overtime. RIP
