Ross Lynn Eveson, 60, of Kaysville, Utah, peacefully returned home to his heavenly and earthly parents while surrounded by his family on May 20, 2023 at the Intermountain Medical Center, Murray, Utah.
Ross was born to Jim and Colleen Eveson (deceased) on February 28, 1963 in LaGrande, Oregon. He grew up alongside his two brothers, Ray (Traci) and Dave (Karma) who not only were loving family members, but also lifelong best friends.
Ross’ childhood was filled with great memories of family trips to Canada, gatherings at the Wallowa Lake cabin, earning scouting badges while working towards becoming an Eagle Scout, and spending Winters skiing at Anthony Lakes with his father and brothers.
He attended LaGrande High School where his many athletic and musical talents showed while playing on the school football team, participating in choir, performing in occasional musical performances, and playing the trombone in the school band.
In 1981, Ross graduated from high school and pursued his secondary education at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho until he was called to serve an 18-month LDS mission in New York City in 1982. After completing his mission he returned to Ricks where he graduated with an Associates in Business in 1985. During his time at Ricks he was on the Teton Valley Ski Team, played intramural football, and participated in other social groups.
Ross furthered his education at Brigham Young University and graduated with a Bachelors in Recreational Management in 1989. During his time at BYU he worked at Deer Valley Mountain Resort in mountain operations and enjoyed his courses that took him outdoors.
After graduation, Ross worked as an Assistant Manager of Marriott Hotels in Albuquerque, New Mexico. There he met his future wife, Tammy Jones, in their LDS family home evening group. In the fall of 1989, Ross followed Tammy to Utah and they became engaged in July of 1990. On November 24, 1990, they were married and sealed for eternity in the Jordan River LDS temple.
Ross and Tammy were blessed with four strong, beautiful daughters: Sarah Hilden (Parker), Anna Perry (Mason), Erin Clark (Daniel), and Emilie Eveson. The last two years of his life were further filled with the joy of being a loving grandfather to Martin Ford Hilden.
For many years, Ross and his family lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, before relocating to Kaysville, Utah in 2006, where they presently call home. Ross worked in the mortgage and real estate industry for over 20 years and fed his passion for skiing by working as a mountain guide at Park City Mountain Resort.
As a faithful and devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Ross actively served in numerous callings. He selflessly fulfilled roles such as counselor in the Bishopric, High Council member, Young Men’s leader, Scout Master, Sunday School teacher, and was a cherished member of the ward choir.
While Ross had diverse interests in politics, photography, the great outdoors, scouting, and his community, his unwavering dedication was always directed towards encouraging, supporting and attending his daughters' sporting, educational, and other events. He nurtured strong, determined women who will forever carry the memories of his dedicated support throughout their lives.
Ross was not only a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin, and friend but also an inspiration to all who had the privilege of knowing him. His absence will be deeply felt, and his memory will forever be in our hearts.
