Neil T. Ross, 60, of Kennebunkport, passed away peacefully at his residence with his loving wife Vickie and family members at his side. He was born Aug. 5, 1947, in Damariscotta to Marcia (Angell) and Theodore B. Ross. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War, serving in the U.S. Air Force with the rank of Sergeant, where he received the National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the Air Force Good Conduct Medal. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Neil attended the University of Maine at Orono and graduated with a BA in Agricultural and Resource Economics in 1972. Following the war he began his banking career with the Farm Credit Service in 1974. In 1977 he joined the Bath Savings Institution and in 1985 became employed with Kennebunk Savings Bank where he held several positions, most recently as the Facilities Manager for the bank. Neil's meticulous nature and dedication to others allowed him to achieve his personal goal of making his environment better than he found it. He received the Cultural Leadership Award in 2002. Next to serving God, Neil's greatest pleasure and priority was his family. Whenever worshiping God, enjoying family, and boating on the ocean could be done at the same time, Neil was happiest. Many family vacations were spent sailing on Muscongus Bay and Penobscot Bay. Neil was an instructor for over 10 years in the United States Power Squadron Boating Safety Course and received the USPS Life Saving Award in 1999. He also enjoyed his dream job on weekends, serving as Captain of Kylie's Chance, a scenic lobster boat cruise out of the Kennebunk River with Vickie as his mate. Neil is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Vickie (Tucker) Ross of Kennebunkport; sons, Nathan Ross of New Haven, Conn., and Mark Ross of Kennebunkport; mother, Marcia Ross of Alna; and sister, Karen Card of West Bath.
