Kenneth Paul Ross, 1951-2009
Kenneth Paul Ross, 1951-2009
Age 57. Born June 1, 1951 in Columbus, Ohio. Passed away peacefully after a long series of illnesses on January 28, 2009 at home in Seattle surrounded by devoted life partner, family and friends. Ken was a 1969 graduate of Upper Arlington (Ohio) High School. He earned a Bachelors Degree in Theater Arts and Pre-Medicine from Ohio State University, a Masters of Theology from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the School Professional Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He was licensed as a psychologist in the states of California and Washington. Between 1980 and 1990, Ken practiced psychology in the community mental health system in Los Angeles and had a private practice in Beverly Hills while serving as an adjunct professor of psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology - Los Angeles. He was elected president of the Los Angeles Society of Clinical Psychologists in 1990. Ken was a member of the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, the American Psychological Association, and the Washington State Psychological Association.

In 1991, Ken left Los Angeles to be the East Region Director for United States Behavioral Health (USBH) in Philadelphia, and then moved to Seattle as the Director of the King County-USBH Medicaid Management Project. In Seattle he fell in love with the city and his life partner, John E. Garlick. Preceded in death by dear friend and soulmate, Shelle Crosby of Seattle. Survived by Mr. Garlick, parents Glenn and Barbara Ross, sister Judith Ross Blum, brother Randall A. Ross (Gail Mezey), and brother Ronald Ross (Dushka Crane-Ross) all of Upper Arlington, Ohio, as well as numerous adoring nieces and nephews. Also survived by dear friends Kim Nicholas and Rachel Diaz, Kelly Maguire, and special friend and former partner Christopher Robin Koch. Mr. Garlick and the family express their gratitude to the Providence Hospice of Seattle, the staff of Seattle Meds, Dr. Bryan Voelzke, Dr. Chet Robachinski, and especially his dear, loyal personal physician of 13 years, Dr. Tom Smith. Ken dipped his toe into heaven each day as he entered the Capitol Hill or S. Jackson St. Starbucks for a Venti Americano and a copy of the New York Times. Ken's outrageous wit, wicked sense of humor, and zest for life will be sorely missed by all of those he touched.

Those wishing to honor Ken's memory are invited to make a donation to the Seattle Public Library Foundation, 1000 Fourth Avenue Seattle, WA 98104 (www.foundation.spl.org). A private memorial celebration will be held at a later date in Seattle.
