Ross was born on February 6, 1956 the youngest of seven children to Edward and Helen (Gerlach) Sprague.

He worked for the majority of his working career as a custodian for the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. Ross was kind and friendly and enjoyed talking and conversing with friends and family. He loved the outdoors and being out in God’s creation. Spending time with his gun club buddies and going out fishing were some of his favorite ways to spend his time.
