COTUIT - Don Ross, 71, passed away peacefully at his home February, 2, 2018. Born December 29, 1946, he grew up and lived half of his life in Belleville, IL. In 1980, he moved his family to Marlboro, MA.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Carol; his two sons, Ed (and wife Julie), and Bob; and grandchildren, Jack and Lily. He also leaves his younger brothers Bob (and wife Faye) and Mark, and younger sister Vicki.

Early in his life, he worked in sales, as it fit his personality perfectly. In his later years, he had different careers in both the Postal Service and eventually in Financial Services at Fidelity. He made lifelong friends in every place he worked. He was always personable and full of humor and honesty. Don will be missed.
