Hi I'm Ross

I'm a Mormon and grew up in Florida.

About Me

Hi I'm a dad and Grandpa. I'm retired now, but worked in the field of aviation and aerospace most of my life. When in my teens I began working on cars of which my favorite was my 1955 chevy two door hard top. I loved to work with mechanical things, so later after a mission for the LDS church, I had the opportunity to become an helicopter pilot for the Army during the Vietnam era. This began my career in aviation and aerospace and allowed me to enjoy things of which I had only dreamed. I also have enjoyed backpacking, hunting, fishing, and many out door activities. I have five boys and have enjoyed spending time with them under the stars and enjoying the beauties of nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess there are many reasons why I'm a Mormon, but what comes to mind is my testimony of the Book of Mormon. I read the book and asked Heavenly Father if it was true, he answered my prayer and I know it is. The Book of Mormon is a second witness of Jesus Christ and proves the Bible to be the word of God. My testimony is my north star, and anchor in this turbulent world.

How I live my faith

I have spent a great deal of my time working with the youth. I have served in Boy Scouts for many years and have watched many of my Scouts grow up to be upstanding citizens in their communities as well as good fathers and husbands. Some have served their county in the armed forces and even been involved in aviation as I have. I have served as a Bishop in a LDS Ward as well as many other callings in the church. Of late my wife and I have assisted a Bishop support the needs of members in his congregation who have health issues etc. I have repaired cars for widows, made home repairs and what ever was needed. My most recent opportunity to serve was at our county jail trying to help prisoners feel the love of Jesus Christ and have a desire to come unto him and find true joy.
