Beckham Philip Ross left his earthly home shortly after birth on June 5, 2012, to join and be cared for by his Lord and paternal grandmother Janet Ross. Beckham’s spirit shall be forever present through the powerful love of his parents, Ryan and Karen, and very special big sister Taya. This love will be supported through his maternal grandparents Philip and Pauline West, paternal grandfather Rod Ross and great-grandfather Sam Neely (Bonnie). Strengthened support will be felt by Beckham through his uncles, aunts and cousins: Kirk, Celine, Aislinn and Alexa Ross; Steve, Stacey, Inez, Isaac and Xavier Truman; Blair, Becky, Ella and Nieve West; Scott and Florence West. The kindness and love provided to Ryan and Karen by their many friends and great aunts and uncles will further add to their special memories of their beautiful son. A private funeral was held on June 13, 2012 at Smith Funeral Home, with burial taking place at Lakeview Cemetery. Anyone wishing to express their sympathy to Karen, Ryan and Taya may contribute to the Beckham Ross Memorial Benevolent Fund. Condolences may be sent online at http://
