James J. “Jim” Ross of Lake Placid died Wednesday, July 2, 2014. He was 92.

Born in Connecticut on Sept. 8, 1921 to Mary and Albert Ross of New Haven, he graduated St. Bernard’s College where he studied in the Seminary and was months shy of becoming a Catholic priest when he then began a career with Crum & Forster as an insurance executive. Mr. Ross retired after 39 years and moved to Lake Placid 10 years ago. He was a member of St. James Catholic Church in Lake Placid and enjoyed playing golf.

Mr. Ross is survived by his children, Kevin M., James F., Maryellen Goodwin, Arthur K., Susan Stageman, Sara Mannix, and eight grandchildren. He was predeceased by a son, Daniel K., and wives Bernice and Juliann.

A Christian Memorial Mass will be held at a later date at St. James Catholic Church. Memorial arrangements are under the devotion of Michael A. Brochetti Funeral Home, Lake Placid.
