David Stuart Ross

January 26, 1963 — December 1, 2023

David Stuart Ross, born on January 26, 1963, in Denver, Colorado, passed away on December 1, 2023, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was a beloved father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend.

David is survived by his three children: Brandon Waddell, Ryan Ross (Ashley), and Tyler Ross. He was a proud and loving grandfather to Gavin Waddell, Natalie Ross, and Luke Ross. David is also survived by his mother, Shawna Ross, father, Stuart Ross, and sister, Dana Macaruso (Torio). His memory will be cherished by a host of other relatives and friends.

Originally from Denver, David moved to Tulsa as a child, and it was there that he built a life full of love and meaningful connections. David was a dedicated single father for over 20 years, pouring his heart and soul into raising his children with love and care.

David had a passion for the simple joys of life. He enjoyed spending his days fishing, working on vehicles, and rebuilding things with his skilled hands. Music was a significant part of his life, and he found immense joy in attending concerts, especially those of his favorite artist, Tom Petty.

His professional life was marked by his dedication to the construction industry, where he worked tirelessly throughout his life. David's love for construction was evident in the quality of his work and the pride he took in building things that would stand the test of time.

In his leisure time, David found solace in his love for hot rods, classic cars, and motorcycles. He had a keen appreciation for the craftsmanship and beauty that went into these vehicles. His passion for the open road and the roar of the engine were reflections of his adventurous spirit.

David Stuart Ross touched the lives of many with his warmth, kindness, and love for life's simple pleasures. He will be remembered as a devoted family man, a skilled craftsman, and a true friend. May he rest in peace, and may his memory live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
