Ross A. Johnson Jr., 38, of Mentor, passed away suddenly June 11, 2017. He was born May 15, 1979 in Willoughby.

Ross worked at the Willoughby Supply Company. Like his father, Ross loved spending time at the river. More than anything though, Ross loved spending time with his children, his family and his friends. Ross had such an outgoing personality and made friends no matter where he was. He had no problems striking up a conversation with the stranger sitting next to him. Most times, those strangers became friends by the end of their conversation.

Survivors are his son, Ross Johnson III; his soulmate and love of his life, Jacki Kirkpatrick; daughters, Celeste, Adelina and Bethany; mother, Melanie Jarrett Johnson; sister, Dawn (Mike Lewandowski) Johnson; nephews, Bryce, Tyler and Alex and his aunts, Gail (Ed) Lowe, Audrey (Ralph) Forrest, Amy Orasko and Debbie Shirer. He is also survived by many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Ross was preceded in death by his father, Ross A. Johnson Sr.; and his loving paternal and maternal grandparents.

The family is extremely grateful to all of Ross' friends and the family of the 306 Lounge. You were all there for him through good times and bad and your friendship never wavered. You were all so special to him and he loved you all.

The family will receive friends to celebrate Ross' life from 1-5 p.m. Saturday June 17, 2017 at the Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060.

A memorial service to conclude the celebration will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made in Ross' memory in care of his family.
