David Blair Ross, a beloved member of the Dallas community, passed away on December 30, 2023, leaving behind a profound legacy. Born on January 4, 1959, in his hometown of Dallas, Texas, David lived a life full of compassion, dedication, and joy.

David's career spanned over three decades at Dart as a bus driver. He dedicated himself to his work with unwavering commitment and served the community faithfully. David's friendly nature and welcoming spirit made him an extraordinary presence for all those who boarded his bus. Known for his gentle demeanor and lightheartedness, he made sure that every passenger felt valued and appreciated.

Outside of his career as a bus driver, David was a devoted family man. He cherished every moment spent with his loved ones. Deloris Ross was not only his wife but also his lifelong partner; their bond was unbreakable. Their son, David W.C.

He was preceded in death by his mother Gloria Chattam, father Fain Brown, and sister Adria Diane Ross.

David's kindness extended beyond his immediate family; he formed strong connections with friends throughout his life journey. His genuine interest in people allowed him to form deep bonds effortlessly. David was often described as a "people person" who never met a stranger. He approached everyone with warmth and sincerity, making them feel heard and valued through both good times and bad.

Aside from his vibrant social life, David had various interests that brought him immense pleasure. He had an undeniable enthusiasm for race cars and would often immerse himself in the details of mechanics. Being an ardent Cowboys fan, David never missed a game and reveled in the victories of his beloved team. Family outings were a cherished tradition where he relished creating lasting memories with his loved ones. A true culinary enthusiast, David also had a knack for cooking and delighted in preparing delicious meals for family and friends.

David's great personality could instantly light up any room. He possessed an infectious sense of humor, always ready to share a joke and uplift those around him. His laughter was contagious and his words of encouragement provided solace during challenging times.
