Obituary of James Ross Eilers
James Ross “PAPA” Eilers, age 71, of Cuthand, went to meet his Lord and Savior, Monday, April 16, 2018, at his brother-in-law’s home in Vega. We know he isn’t suffering anymore and is able to breathe again without fighting for his breath. Ross loved to fish at Cooper Lake with his grandson, Cody Murphy. His love of his life was his daughter, Cami. He was so proud of his grandson, Michael Ross Murphy who is serving our country in the U.S. Air Force. His son-in-law was like a son he never had. He married Linda Wooten on January 14, 1972, in Cuthand and they were married for 46 years. Ross served his country in the U.S. Army. He was retired from Luminate Power Plant in Mt. Pleasant.
