Ross Edward Elison | Obituary

On May 16th, 2020, Ross Edward Elison, 49, passed

away peacefully from natural causes, next to his guitar

that he cherished, having been playing music that he

had such a passion for. A deeply devoted and loving son,

brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, and cat lover, Ross was

an incredibly talented musician, artist, and the pet of

the many feline owners, fostering cats, and volunteering

at the local animal shelters. For those of us who knew

Ross, it is unbelievable that we are never going to laugh

together again, to tell him how much we love him, and to

have him know how grateful we have been to have had

him in our lives. Everyone should be so lucky to know

such a compassionate and giving person.

Ross is preceded in death by his father, David Allen

Elison on May 31rst, 2018 and has left behind a family

who will always love him more than he could have

imagined; his mother, Shirley Elin Elison, 3 sisters,

a brother, 3 nephews and 2 nieces, countless aunts,

uncles, cousins, and two cats, Cyrus and Isabella.

We thank everyone who has provided us with the

wonderful, adventuresome stories of Ross, and how he

had impacted their lives. A private family service will

be held; Ross will be buried in the new section of the

Carbonado Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please honor Ross’s love of cats

with a donation to the Auburn Humane Society

( in his memory.
