Past District Governor R D Ross passed away May 3rd.  Mike Heckner and Bob Churchill from the Columbia Club were there that morning. The daughters told them that a service would be a couple of months out because friends and family are all over the country. They reported that RD looked peaceful and great in his gold MU Tiger polo shirt. There was a KU blanket at the foot of the bed (his undergraduate school).  He was a wonderful man and patriot. Up until recently, he never missed a meeting.  He was a magnet at weekly meetings.  Everyone wanted to greet and talk to him. He will be missed.
