ALEXANDRIA, Va. — H. Ross Lemmon, 75, of Alexandria, passed away on Monday, Oct. 8, 2012. He will be remembered best for his contagious sense of humor, his strong faith and his devotion to family.

Ross grew up in Lewisburg and was a 1955 graduate of Lewisburg High School and a 1959 graduate of Colgate University, Hamilton, N.Y.

Ross was a member of Holy Cross Episcopal Church, North Plainfield, and subsequently Calvary Episcopal Church, Summit, N.J. At both churches and in his community, he was involved in several organizations and activities. Upon moving to Alexandria in February, Ross joined St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
