Dennis Joseph "DJ" Ross was born December 15, 1941 in Detroit, Michigan to Jack and Loyola (Degrandchamp) Ross. Dennis grew up in Detroit, graduated from St. Anthony's High School and then served in the Air Force for four years.

Dennis loved music. He knew every word to any country or oldie songs, as well as the singer, and date the music was produced. His favorite singer of all time, was Elvis Presley. True to his devoted family spirit, when given the opportunity to meet the King, he passed it up to be present for the birth of one of his five children.

Dennis possessed a sharp mind. He enjoyed reading the newspaper daily, keeping him abreast on current affairs. Dennis could carry on a conversation with a world leader or the neighbor down the street.

Dennis was a selfless person. He always thought of others before himself. He never complained and kept a positive attitude no matter what the circumstance.

Dennis had a great sense of humor. When he laughed he would hold his breath and his face would turn beat red. It was quite a sight to see.

Dennis was also a charmer. While in his final years, Dennis was unable to care for himself. His charismatic spirit made him a favorite among the nurses.

Dennis leaves these attributes in the hearts of his five children and five grandchildren. He is loved and will be missed by all that had the pleasure of crossing paths with his gentle and generous spirit.

Dennis is survived by his children, David (Diana), Doug, Derrek (Amanda), Debbie (Steve) Teolis and Dusty (Brittany) Ross; his sisters, Ruth Cronin and Maureen Karges and his five grandchildren, Sophie, Denny, Madden, Reagan, and Boston. He was predeceased by his wife, Dollie.
