Celebration of Life
Ross was born on a Thursday in a log cabin in Channelview, TX to Vera Tucker & Anthony Joseph Ingrando. He was the 3rd child out of 4 who grew up running and playing in the woods of the area before it became the busy town it is today. He attended elementary schools in Channelview but completed his education in the Baytown area where he graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1953. As a young man, he proudly served his country for 6 yrs in the United States Marine Corps where he finished his tour as a Seargant E-4. Throughout his life, this was one of his prized accomplishments and even upon admittance and stay in the hospital, insisted on wearing his Semper Fi ballcap.
Ross went on to build his own home in Channelview where he faithfully attended Dell Dale Avenue Baptist Church, raised a large family, served as a reservist in the Harris County Sheriffs Department and then worked as an Engineer & Draftsman for Exxon. He retired in his 70s and moved to Crosby, TX with his wife Linda of 33 years this March.
Ross loved a nice slow meal, golf, traveling, and a good tall tale. He loved being an American, shortcuts via back roads, anything nostalgic, his dog Sam, and short naps. He loved his in-laws, his garage treasure, and hearing his beautiful bride sing. He simply loved his life, but more than this he loved the promise of Heaven to come. Hallelujah!
The family of Ross Ingrando wish to thank:
Texas Oncology of Baytown for the many years of care received,
Faith Community Hospice for comfort,
Pastor Kenneth Trent for officiating, Pastor Scott Neal for singing, &
Our many friends, extended family and co-workers for meals, rides, dog-sitting, and generous support.
