Joseph A. Ross

October 12, 1968 — December 20, 2020

Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest; heals the heart and makes it whole. Just take this song and you'll never feel Left all alone. So, throw your horns in the air, bang your head and feel the noize! We’re gonna get wild, Wild, WILD!

“Jump”, “Dance”, we ain’t lookin for “Nothing But A Good Time” you “Animal” “I Wanna Rock”! Joseph A. Ross was what you would call a “metal head” the very best that the 1980’s hair and glam metal offered soothed Joe’s mind and healed his heart. He was a huge music fan who rocked like a hurricane. He was also; positive, understanding, caring and compassionate. Voices, a thousand, thousand voices, Whispering, the time has passed for choices. The golden days have passed us over and on Sunday December 20, 2020 Joseph A. Ross passed away at Virtua-Lourdes Hospital in Camden.

Joe was born in Camden and had been a lifetime resident of Collingswood. He was an 80’s rock baby who erupted for Van Halen.

Joe is survived by his son Christopher and his parents Glenn E., Sr. & his wife Joan (nee Bansky) Ross. He is the brother of Glenn, Jr. & his wife Kathy and Nancy & her husband Fred Brander. He is also survived by his nephew Robert, his wife Laura Smith and their children Lillian, McKenzie, Scarlet, his niece Jennifer & her husband Matthew Scopetta, his dear friend Kenneth Waller and his feline fur babies Nipper, Moisha and Holly.
