Ross W. Ananea, age 74, of Euclid Ave., in Brookville PA, passed away on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at the Penn Highlands DuBois Hospital. He was born on October 9, 1944, to the late Jess Sr. and Mildred (Palmer) Ananea, in Punxsutawney, PA. Ross graduated from the Punxsutawney High School with the class of 1960, and then graduated from the DuBois Business College with the class of 1962. On May 21, 1966, Ross married Caron (Rowan) Ananea in Brookville PA; after almost fifty-three years of marriage, Caron survives him. He had spent time in the Army Reserves and he previously worked for the Hanley Brick Company / Glen Gary in Summerville PA, J.A. Kohlhepp and Sons in DuBois PA, and for Lezzer Lumber Co., in DuBois PA. Ross was a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Brookville PA. Ross loved sports all of his life and he played for Crooks on the Brookville Area Softball League and for the Brookville Grays. He was known for coaching and umpiring little league games and loved watching his grandsons play sports, giving advice and correcting their skills, even into their thirties. He was also a big Penn State Football fan. Ross was willing to help anyone, and he was a dedicated, hard worker. He liked being a handyman with skills in many different areas. Ross was very sociable with a great sense of humor and contagious smile. He loved to make others laugh and to his family he was a great husband, father, grandfather, and friend; someone people can look up to. He also enjoyed activities such as gardening, hunting, and most importantly, spending time with his family. In addition to his wife Caron, Ross is survived by one son; Ross “JR” W. Ananea Jr., and his wife Connie; five siblings; Mary “Shorty” Dooley of New Jersey; Jess Ananea Jr., of Frostburg PA; Joe (Maria) Ananea of Williamsport, PA; Paul (Diane) Ananea of Brookville PA; Jack Ananea of Frostburg, PA; two grandsons; Jory (Brittany) Ananea, Jaren Ananea; and two great-grandchildren; Anakin and Atticus Ananea.
