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.

This is awesome! Cemetery ground staff is more than happy to assist. And Bob is underneath a happy little tree filled with beautiful Spanish Moss!

It's hard to look at the sky without wondering what kind of canvas prep Bob did before the sun came up.
