On December 21, 2020, Ross W. Debele III, age 40, former resident of Stockton, NJ passed away unexpectedly in Pompano, FL.  

Ross was many things to many people...a wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend.  He was as “real and down to earth” as they come and loved by all who knew him.  Ross worked as a treatment counselor and server/bartender for many years before he and a close friend recently decided to start a sales business together.  

Ross had a deep founded love for his friends, “his brothers” and for his family.  Whenever he could, he would fly home to New Jersey to spend time with his family.

Ross loved to read, go to the gym, snowboard, listen to live music and just hang with his friends. He loved dogs and had a special affinity towards pit bulls.  And man, did he love his car...driving it, listening to good music in it and of course cleaning it.  Ross was just like his mom...he loved to clean!

Ross is preceded in death by his mother, Melanie Debele, his brother James Capell, and his grandparents Ross and Marie Debele and Frederick and Frances Chelberg.

He is survived by his loving father Ross W. Debele Jr., his sister Shannon Martin and her husband Michael Martin, his sister Jennifer Sabosik and her husband Christopher Sabosik, his brother Geoff Capell and his wife Ellen Capell.  He is also an uncle to Zoe and Alexa Sabosik, Nicholas Capell, Keira and Braedon Burd and Caleb Martin.

He will be remembered and loved by all that were blessed to know him.

A memorial service will be planned for the spring of 2021 when gathering restrictions have been removed and  the details will be posted on his Facebook page for all who wish to attend.
