We just learned that Kelly Ross passed away suddenly this past week in Dallas, Texas of a pulmonary embolism. Kelly was a long time referee at both the National Level, as well as the professional indoor level while he lived in Wisconsin. He recently moved from Austin Texas to Dallas for a new job. His mother called in a wellness check when Kelly didn't call her as promised. The police found him deceased when they checked per her request.
Kelly was well know in Missouri as a former executive director for Lake Country Soccer in Springfield, a former President of Missouri Youth Soccer, as well as a USSF Referee, Assessor, Instructor and Assignor. He contributions, his humor as well as his uniqueness will be missed by all that knew him.
