We share the sad news that former Carnival Executive Vice President, Ron Ross, has passed away. Ron was a great leader of our organization for almost 20 years and a very special man. He was also a member of the Grand Krewe of Osiris and the Secret Order of Boll Weevils. Ron was a man of strong character, integrity and deep Christian faith. He enjoyed helping people grow, become their best and encouraged others personally and professionally. His personal mission statement was to live life empathetically with integrity and to be a positive force in the lives of others. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will be reunited by his wife Peg, who in his words, "was not only my better half, she is what made me whole.”We are glad that we were able to see Ron last week.

Visitation will be on Saturday, June 17 in the Connector of Second Presbyterian Church, 4055 Poplar Avenue, at 1 PM with the service to follow in the Sanctuary at 3 PM.
