Levi Ross, 18, passed away at his home in Fontana, Kan., Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015. He was born Feb. 11, 1997, at Olathe, Kan., the son of Kenneth Ross, of Tonganoxie, and Linda Ross, of Fontana. Levi graduated from Prairie View High School in the Class of 2015. He was a very talented athlete who enjoyed track, soccer, and basketball. Levi loved his pets, his friends, and, most especially, his team mates. He chose “to live life” in a positive, carefree way, even after being diagnosed with cancer. Levi’s personality was reflected in his favorite saying, “Everything will work out in the end, and if it doesn’t, it’s not the end.”
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, at the Prairie View Performing Arts Center. Visitation will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, La Cygne Chapel. The family suggests contributions to the charity of one’s choice.
