Ross was born March 19, 1940, in Baird, Texas, the son of the late E.T. Kent and Julia (Poindexter) Kent. He lived in the Denton Valley area his entire life & regularly attended the Denton Valley Baptist Church.  He worked at the ACCO Feed Mill for many years and later retired from Jackson Bros Feed & Seed in Abilene.

Ross loved the Lord, music, and being with his friends and family.  Being outdoors was a favorite place for Ross to be and he enjoyed working with cattle.  If you didn’t know Ross you missed out on being greeted with his big smile, sparkling blue eyes, and his kind, gentle heart.  Ross was an honorable man and will forever be in our hearts.

He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.

Ross is survived by Alice and Don Ballard of Haskell; Mindy Ballard of Abilene; Chad Ballard of Henderson, NV; Janice Courtney of Midland; Selma Adams of Albuquerque; Pam Baker of Glenrose; Paula Baugus of Abilene; numerous cousins and a host of dear friends.

Pallbearers are Wille Carrigan, Mike Carrigan, Kevin Burton, Dillon Burton, Ken Draper, and Jay Hayhurst.

Memorials may be made to the Denton Valley Baptist Church, 11657 Fm 604S, Clyde, TX 79510.
