Gotha, Florida: Grave of Bob Ross

Everyone's favorite TV speedy landscape painter. Flat-on-the-ground marker displays Bob's name in a groovy font, his smiling face framed by beard and afro. Often festooned with flowers and paintbrushes.

400 Woodlawn Cemetery Rd, Gotha, FL
Woodlawn Memorial Park. The grave is straight in from the cemetery entrance, all the way in the back. Look for the upright marble colonnade with statues of young Jesus confounding the temple priests, then walk out approximately eight rows. Section O, Lot 537.

Grave of Bob Ross

We came by to see Bob's marker. If you come in on the road with the Roman columns facing you, it is easy to spot with all the mementos. There was Cracker Barrel syrup bottle, cigarettes, Pepsi can, painted rocks, Pez dispenser etc.

Cool grave with Bob's photo, along with a bunch of art left by fans, making it easier to find. Once you are in the back of the cemetery it is only one or two rows in from the road, close to the street. You will see Roman columns; it is about 8 or 10 graves to the left (not by the columns).

Close to the road in the back of the cemetery. Not the road you came in on... drive to the back of cemetery.

Grave of Bob Ross

Minor correction to find his grave: walk behind the main funeral home (not the crematory). Go left about 50 yards to Section O. It's near the cemetery road.

We happened across an employee tooling around in a golf cart and he told us (and the hapless other people in the cart) all about Bob Ross and the reason people leave a multitude of tributes on his in-ground headstone plaque.

One of my heroes. The grave of Bob Ross is close to the road, in front of the Jesus statue.
