January 15, 1947 - January 26, 2022
Ross Glenn Newland, Jr. passed away following a lengthy illness at his home in Locust, North Carolina on January 26, 2022, at the age of 75. Ross was born in Shreveport, Louisiana to Ross Glenn and Frances Estelle Barnes Newland on January 15, 1947. Ross was a very quiet man who had a fierce devotion to his Heavenly Father, his wife and his country. Ross received Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of his life at the tender age of fifteen. He viewed his relationship with his Lord as a friendship. Ross was heard to say that his love for his wife, Jan, was second only to God in his heart. His service to his country for eleven years as a submarine electronics technician set the bar high for his work ethic in law enforcement, security and polygraph technology. Ross was known to say that if you loved your work, you would never work a day in your life. However, his work provided a lot of fascinating story content that he loved to share through the years. He had a life full of many exciting moments growing up in and around the bayous of Louisiana. He enjoyed sharing many, many stories of those days with friends and family through the years. Ross was an avid reader of all subject matter, especially his Bible. Ross also enjoyed working around the house, inside and outside. He was also a skilled wood carver. Ross is survived by his wife, Jan Langston Jackson. Visitation will be held at Heritage Funeral Home, 3700 Forest Lawn Drive, Matthews, NC 28104 on Saturday, January 29, 2022, at 9:30 a.m. A celebration of Ross’ life will follow at 10:30 a.m. with interment immediately following at Forest Lawn East Cemetery.
