Thread Name: Obit: Seattle's John Ross, Mudcatter, April 2009
Subject: RE: Obit: Seattle's John Ross, Mudcatter, April 09
John Ross passed away on April 6, in the evening, from a sudden heart attack. I just got the information from the coroner. They are still looking for any family or next of kin. If you know of any living family members, please contact me and I'll pass the info on to the police.
It is clear that John Ross drew his family and friends from the Seattle folk music scene. It is up to us to celebrate his life and to help in his passing. It is our hope that those who are interested could organize a service or remembrance of some kind in his name prior to the Northwest Folklife Festival. We're thinking of ways to remember him at Folklife as well.
