Terrance James Ross, 75, of Mercersburg passed away on July 14, 2020.

Born October 10, 1944 in Harrisburg, Pa, he was the son of the late William G Ross and Helen E Smith-Ross of Wormleysburg, Pa.

Born with Spastic Quadriplegia-Cerebral Palsy, the most severe form of CP, Terrance became a fully functioning adult learning to walk, talk, and write, by his late teens. He was twice awarded the Easter Seal Poster Child of the Year for his personal achievements and as an ambassador for the Cerebral Palsy cause.

Terry’s favorite pastime was traveling which he did often throughout the northeast to visit friends and family.

In his 20s he took a job with the State of Pennsylvania as a page delivering mail and packages to members of the Assembly at the State Capital. He held this job for over 20 years and retired in 1985.

He was involved and supported by his community with active memberships in the Elks and Kiwanis Clubs.

Surviving family include his brother Jerrold Ross and his sister-in-law Debby Schmitz- Ross.

His late mother Helen Smith-Ross was the granddaughter of William H Smith Sr a long time resident of Mercersburg, Pa. who built, in 1910 on Linden Avenue, “Rosemont”, one of the best examples of a Classical Revival House in Franklin county.
