Ghaton DeAngelo Ross was born May 28, 1973, in Waterloo, Iowa, the son of Fannie Ross and Craig McGinnis. Graduating from Central High School, he was a standout athlete in football and shot putt. A Junior College All-American and team captain at Ellsworth Community College in Football, he transferred to Indiana University on a football scholarship, studying Secondary Education. He earned his undergraduate degree in communications. Ghaton earned his Master of Science in Business Entertainment in 2017. He loved people and went on two Mission trips to Haiti with his church. He was CEO of Huddle Entertainment Group, Inc to present time.

Ghaton married Kenya Weatherspoon and had one child, Xzavier Ross. Many years later he met and married Cheyenne Hollin and had two children, Santana and Nina Mae Ross.

Ghaton enjoyed football and music, he cherished his family and friends and gave of his heart in uncommon ways, but above all else, his children were most important to him. When he was a teenager, he wrote songs and poetry and used these gifts when he sang to the older population in nursing homes.

Those left to cherish his memory are his beloved children, Xzavier, Santana and Nina; his mother, Fannie Haynes of Rock Island; his father; brothers, Kendel Ross, Jamar Mallory, Coreyon Mallory (Falana), and Marvin Mallory, Jr.; sisters, TaMerria Ross-Yusuff (Kenny), and Shapree Mallory; and a host of nieces and nephews. Ghaton also had a half-brother, Mike, and half-sister, Nakisha Peniston.

Special thanks to the extended family, friends, supporters and new friend Melissa. He embraced ALL and LOVED many.
