Ross, Forrest L.

Forrest “Boo” Lindburg Ross, age 68, of Alto, New Mexico, passed away on September 6, 2016 in Plano, Texas. Forrest was born on August 22, 1948 to the late Alton Ross and Doris Fincher Ross in Wichita Falls, Texas; the firstborn of five children, he made a profession of faith at the age of 12 years old and was baptized at Southside Baptist Church. He graduated from Wichita Falls High School class of 1966. On June 6, 1968 he married the love of his life, Linda Gail McDonald Ross, and the two were blessed with 48 years together. Forrest joined the United States Army in 1968 and served his country in both El Paso, Texas and Anchorage, Alaska before his honorable discharge in 1971. He then went on to receive his bachelor’s degree from Midwestern State University. Forrest and Linda moved to their home in Alto, NM when he retired in 2006. Boo was a comedian at heart. He enjoyed listening to and collecting music, horse races, and most of all, spending time with his family.

    We were so sorry to hear that Boo passed. There are so many memories of great times at the Ross family home. He made me a life long Dylan fan and I’ll never forget his terrific sense of story telling and humor. One of a kind. Kari and I are thinking about you guys.

    Condolences to the Ross family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
