He was born on Sept. 11, 1934, in Zurich, Mont., to John and Alta Peterson. He married his life-long love Phyllis Frieling at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Fort Benton, Mont., on May 13, 1957.
Ross was a big, loving, teddy bear of a man who was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He was passionate about music of all kinds, especially singing with his siblings at family gatherings.
