Ross, Johnny Mack


In Loving Memory of Johnny Mack Ross

Born in Ennis TX

April 3, 1941 ~ August 13, 2014

 Johnny Ross, age 73, went to be with his Heavenly Father, August 13, 2014. His long, hard fought, battle with cancer has ended.

He was the owner of B&E Sales Restaurant Equiptment Co. in Dallas TX, and a Dallas Morning News Contractor for many years. He volunteered as a Mesquite Pee-Wee Football Coach for 20 wonderful years. Johnny was a precious and loving husband, a great dad, son, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, brother-in-law, and a friend to so many. 

His wit and sense of humor was loved by all. His favorite past time was spent talking about football, the Texas Rangers and playing with his dog, Toto. He will be missed, as he was loved, by many. His last wish and request was for his sons to read and live by God’s Word. He presented each of his sons with a Bible, shortly before his death.

He is survived by his loving wife, of 44 years, Diane Ross.

Five sons, Johnny Dwayne Ross, Robert Lee Ross, Larry Wallace Ross, Mark David Ross, and Johnny Mack Ross Jr.

One daughter, Johnice Ross, and a special daughter, Tammy Smith, who was adopted in their hearts, by Johnny, Diane and family.

He had three daughter-in-laws, Jennifer, Chrystel and Shelly Ross.

Johnny loved and was so proud of his many grandchildren, and two great grandsons.

He had one living sister, Sharon Nichols.

Preceding Johnny in death, is his mother, Estelle Agnew, a sister, Zanna Ross and a brother, Jody Bean.


The Memorial Service will be held at Parkside Baptist Church, 1729 N. Gross Road, Mesquite TX, at 2 PM on August 23, 2014.    Presiding Minister: Assistant Pastor Mike Butler

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heavens”

    You were so many things to so many people. To me your were the uncle that insisted my mama would buy my ice cream on the way home ( she never did lol). You were the father that you didnt have to be but man enough to be. You were the smile that lit up the room. You were the jokester that enjoyed a good laugh and sure knew how to do it. I will miss all these things you were to me. I love you dearly. RIP my sweet uncle!

    Conversations with Johnny will be missed but we shall meet again in that CITY described in the Book of Revelation. How do I know this? Johnny personally informed me that he was ready to meet the Lord. He smiled as he gave me that assurance. His facial expression was that of a happy man. God Bless the Ross Family.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
