Tommy Thornton ‘T.T.’ Ross

Mr. Tommy Thornton “T.T.” Ross, age 87, of Corsicana passed away peacefully in his sleep Monday, June 24, 2013 at his residence in Corsicana. He was born Oct. 19, 1925 in Vernon and was raised by parents R.E. and Cleo Ross.

Tommy served his country in the United States Navy during World War II, and later in the Korean War. His military service was a proud part of his life. Known by his family and many friends as “Poppa,” he was a self-made man that worked hard and played hard all his life. He was a loyal fan of the Texas Longhorns, an avid golfer, and loved watching all sports. And above all else, Tommy loved God, his family and his country.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Jerry Ross; son, Johnny Ross and wife Brenda of Corsicana; daughter, Terry Ross and close friend Sid Fiegel of Austin; granddaughters, Adrienne Seiler and husband Dr. Robert Seiler of Austin, Angie Reynolds and husband Heath of Corsicana, and Kylie Ross of Dallas. He is also survived by “his boys,” great grandsons  Robert, Andrew, and Ryan Seiler of Austin, and James Ross “J.R.” and Tommy Reece Reynolds of Corsicana. He also leaves to cherish his memory a host of dear friends.

Visitation was held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at Corley Funeral Home.

Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Danny P. Reeves officiating. Cremation and a private family burial will take place at Oakwood Cemetery at a later date.
