AMBROSE, Maurice Lavon “Von”, 43, of Dayton, Ohio, born July 21, 1975 in Chicago, Illinois, transitioned into eternal rest Saturday, November 3, 2018. Maurice received his salvation at the age of 33, and was an active member of the Power House Church in Dayton under the leadership of prophet Daryl Hamison.

“Von” had a big heart and personality with a soft spot in his heart for his family. He would literally give the shirt off his back to help his family or someone in need. He had a great sense of humor that made everyone around him laugh. Von would often tell jokes that brought life to the party. He was indeed a supportive and loving father, son, brother and friend. He will truly be missed. We love you Von.
