Ross is survived by: his father, Andy L. Arnold, stepmother, Kara Arnold, and brother, Jacob Arnold; beloved grandmother, Sharon Arnold; uncle, Thomas Arnold and wife Bernadette, uncle Michael Arnold and wife Mary, uncle Daniel “Stub” Arnold and wife Raelene, aunt Libby (Arnold) Henry and husband Terry; cousins, Carlos, Ezekiel, and Gerson Arnold, Luke and Lily Arnold, Samuel Arnold, Gabrielle and Arika Henry; maternal grandmother, Bea Bilger; sister, Johnna-Kay Hoar; uncle Jesse Bilger and wife Lori, aunt Tonya Miner, aunt Tolly Sunderland and husband Bob, uncle Jeremy Bilger and wife Amy, and many great-aunts and great-uncles, other cousins and friends.
