My deepest sympathies to the Johnston Family. I only heard about Mr Ross passing when I stopped by to see Keith today. I remember how nice Ross & Brenda were when I came over to see Aaron when we were young. Fond memories of very fine people indeed. May peace be with you all.

I was so sorry to read of Ross' death. I met and became friendly with Ross when I worked in Lake Charles for Calcasieu Marine National Bank and Ross serviced our Credit Card Account. Ross was always a refreshing breath of fresh air when he entered the room. His smile, demeanor, wit, and sincerity made everyone comfortable and happy for the time that they were going to spend in his presence. And he was so very competent in his job. No matter the problem, Ross could and would resolve it to everyone's satisfaction. I'm sorry that I didn't get to spend more time with him but treasure the time that I did have with him. I share your sense of loss. May God bless you and Ross' memory. John Sachs
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Ross was a wonderful supportive father-in-law to our daughter Victoria and what fun we had with him at her and Aaron's wedding.

We've shared our country road with Ross & Brenda for over thirty years now. We're really going to miss seeing Ross's truck going down so slowly looking for deer, his hand alway coming out the window for a friendly wave, and stopping for an occasional chat. Rest in peace, Ross, till we see you again on our heavenly road. Alice & Archie

Brenda, My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I am thinking of you. Ross was my dads best friend and I will always remember the daily telephone calls and laughter from the two of them. I will miss him so much and am so thankful that both my mom and dad had Ross as a friend. He was truly the best! I am sure my dad is waiting with open arms and a big smile for his best buddy Ross. May God be with you. Much love from my heart!

I have many memories of Ross. Mostly of him taking his lunch hour and coming to my store"Hunt&Whitaker"to visit me. He was always a gentleman. A very kind person. Never a bad word about anyone. Wish I could be there to attend his service. I am sure it will be packed. This is a loss for the family, but a gain for the Glory of God. My thoughts and condolences to all of his family. Great, great guy!!!!

I've known Ross for many years. He is one of the "good guys" and I will always remember the laughs, the sports competition, and the good conversations we shared. We meet so many people on life's journey but very few do we remember forever. J. Ross Johnston is one of those few. Condolences to his family and friends and may God Bless.

Ross was a gentle giant and a God fearing man. He was always at the ready to help myself and the rest of the greeters at the front entrance of the sanctuary on Sundays. Ross was always the money expert we went to in our finance committee meetings. I myself will always miss his firm handshake and his gentle smile. God has taken home a good a good man and a faithful servant.
