The young composer and producer passed away on October 16th, the news was announced by his family on Monday.

“For the 25 years and 10 months we’ve known each other, the thought of that beautiful boy brings waves of sadness, tears and laughter.
“He’s irrepressible, fun, wild and amazing. He’s a man these days. We love him. We take him with us wherever we go.”
Ross is survived by his parents, Tim and Nicky Ross, and his younger brother, Hunter Ross.
