August 6, 1971 - May 14, 2020
Duane Allen Ross of Fargo, ND, died Thursday, May 14, 2020, at the age of 48 years. Duane was born on August 6, 1971, to Allen and Patricia (Malandro) Ross in Fargo, ND. Duane grew up in Fargo and attended schools here. He worked with Friendship Inc. before moving to Community Living Services. Duane loved to go to camp, church, and the activity center for dance. Duane's special gifts to this world, and his loved ones, were many. While having suffered a lifelong mental handicap, Duane brought joy, a smile, quickly offered friendship, and a sense of humor and compassion that were noted by all. Duane would shed tears when others were in pain, having empathy for their suffering. Duane asked little of this world and people around him. His happiness was often decided by a simple trip to a popular restaurant, or time with his family sitting and visiting, or joking around with his dad with whatever could serve as a puppet. Many cared for Duane throughout his life, as he required assistance frequently, and those people also loved him, looked out for him, and were touched by his presence in this world, as were we. Duane will be sorely missed. Duane is survived by his parents Allen and Patricia Ross of Fargo, ND, his brother, and sister; Linda (Jim) Duncan and David (Tammy) Ross, along with several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother Jeffrey Ross and infant brother along with his grandparents.
