Obituary for Douglas Ross

Print
Douglas Owen Ross (79) passed away early Saturday morning, February 9th, at Baptist Health Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Scotia, NY.

Born December 9, 1939, in Detroit, MI, Doug was the son of the late General Owen and Marjorie (Corbin) Ross.

Doug was raised by his mother and his grandmother, Frances (“Frankie”) Corbin. He graduated a Merit Scholar from Lane High School in Charlottesville, VA, and earned his Bachelor Degree in Psychology from the University of Virginia.

Doug served his country from 1962 to 1966 as a Lieutenant in the Air Force, where his role was as a Radar Operator. During his time in the military, he was a Civil Rights activist fighting for desegregation in the South.

After receiving an honorable discharge, Doug moved to New York City, where he earned his Master of Fine Arts in Acting as a member of the first graduating class at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. He went on to play the role of Terry Prescott on the CBS daytime drama “Where The Heart Is” and various parts in stage productions. He was a member of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild- American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) and AEA (Actor’s Equity Association).

A longtime resident of Park Slope, Brooklyn, Doug was self-employed as master carpenter and cabinetmaker. He retired to the Catskills in Upstate New York, where he enjoyed hiking and canoeing, landscape photography, and writing. He is remembered for his intelligence (having qualified for Mensa, the international high-IQ society), his love of the outdoors, and his passion for the arts.

Doug is survived by his children; Alisha A. Stevens of Schenectady, Nathaniel D. Ross of Philadelphia, and Matthew R. Ross (Veronica Beswick) of Schenectady. He is also survived by his grandchildren; Lorelai Beswick-Ross, Giuliana Beswick-Ross, Xander Beswick-Ross and Charlotte Stevens.

Services for Doug will be held at a future time to be announced.
