Darrell "Disco" Dwight Ross, 57, of Cherokee passed away Thursday, May 12, 2016.

Born August 19, 1958 to the late Leroy and Martha Ross.  Darrell was a member of Straight Fork Baptist Church.  If you had time to listen, Darrell loved to testify.  He loved all outdoor activities, where he assisted others year round by cutting grass, cutting wood, and farming.  He loved fishing, spending time with his family at Sunday dinner, and for years, playing fast pitch.  He had a lot of friends and family whom he loved very much.  He especially loved all the children.  At Christmas, he would dress up as Santa Claus.  Darrell spent time with the cancer group, as long as his health would allow him.  Darrell will be missed in so many aspects.  But he would want all of us to rejoice because he went to his heavenly home to be with his mother and the rest of his loving family.

Darrell is survived by one son Delbert D. Ross (Sherri); two grandsons, Kyle and Jason; one granddaughter, Whitney; one great granddaughter, Aaliyah; a special nephew, Shyne Ross; two sisters, Florence Lewis (Barry) and Candy Ross (Mark); In addition, Darrell is survived by his aunts, uncles, several nieces, nephews and cousins, whom he loved very much.

In addition to his parents Darrell was preceded in death by one sister, Gwen R. Locust; one Aunt, Maggie Lossiah; two uncles, Woodrow and Noah Lossiah.

Visitation will be held Sunday, May 15, 2016 beginning at 4 pm at the Straight Fork Baptist Church where the body will remain until the hour of service on Monday, May 16, 2016 at 2pm.  Revs. Charles Ray Ball, James "Bo" Parris, and Red Bradley will officiate.  Burial will follow at the Lossiah Family Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be among family and friends.

My Condolences for the Family
Isaiah 25:8: He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it].
Revelation 21: 3, 4: " With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
