Lanny Gene Ross was born May 20, 1951, in Clarinda, Iowa the son of William Oppie Ross and Florence Edith (Reynolds) Ross. He grew up attending school in New Market, graduating with the Class of 1970. After graduation he started working for the Lisle Corporation in Clarinda in June of 1971, retiring in June of 2016, after 45 years of service as a Hydraulic Press Operator in the Assembly Department. Two children, Brad and Michelle, were born to bless his life. Both remember learning how to drive, at an early age, on the gravel roads.

Lanny farmed with his father and brother, along with working at Lisle Corporation until 1989 when they sold the family farm. He also enjoyed fishing when time allowed and pop bottle collecting. He enjoyed his ‘back roading’ trips with his brother, where they enjoyed taking pictures of old barns, houses and windmills. However, some how they always ended their trip at a casino! Lanny was a faithful fireman for the New Market Fire & Rescue for over 41 years, having certifications for Fire Fighter 1 and EMS training. Later in life he was blessed with four grandsons, one granddaughter and one great-granddaughter that became the joy of his life. Lanny always put other peoples needs before his own.

Left to cherish Lanny’s memory are his two children, Brad Ross and wife Jelisa of Clarinda, Iowa; and Michelle Hobbick and husband Charles (Eric) of New Market, Iowa; a brother, Gary Ross of Maitland, Missouri; four grandchildren, Shawn, Alex and Jacob Ross and Dannielle Hobbick: one great-granddaughter, Alaina Marie Ross; along with many other family members and friends.

Preceding Lanny in death are his parents, William and Florence Ross; his maternal and paternal grandparents; a sister-in-law, Myra Ross; and a grandson, Scotty Eugene Ross.

Lanny was proud to serve his family and community.
May he be at peace in God’s loving care.
