Tony Lynn Ross, age 57, passed away quietly at his home in Salt Lake City on December 10, 2013. He made his final stand against colorectal cancer
with great dignity keeping an eye single to the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Lynn was born August 20, 1956 at Upland, San Bernardino, California. He was the son of the late Eugene Dale Ross Sr. and Glenavere Hunting. At an early age he moved with his parents to Alberta, Canada where he graduated from Cardston High School. At high school he wrestled his way to the Alberta Provincial Championship and won the 98 pound weight class. He was always happy to toss a baseball with his dad and together they made their own field of dreams.
After he graduated from high school he was offered a "make good scholarship" from Ricks College for his wrestling potential. He chose not to go to college and rather he learned a trade. He learned with skill the craft of drywall, taping, and to create beautiful feature walls and ceilings. After he became ill he worked on a maintenance crew for the Utah State Government.
Lynn was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed giving service especially in Sunday School. He attended seminary and later enjoyed going to the Temple.
Lynn is preceded in death by his parents Gene and Gwen. He is survived by a sister, Glenagene R. Marsden (Jay) of Sherwood Park, Alberta, a brother Eugene Dale Ross Jr. (Annmarie) of Rawlins, Wyoming, brother Tom Ross of Provo, Utah, and a niece Ashley Walton (Eric) Payson, Utah.
