Terry & Neil Ross

Terry Zaner Ross
February 24, 1951 - October 20, 2023


Terry Zaner Ross, age 72, passed away on October 20, 2023 in Millcreek, Utah. He was born February 24, 1951 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Zaner Wightman Ross and Orpha Terry Ross.


Terry was the 2nd of 4 children. He was very proud of his name. His first name, Terry, was his mother’s last name. His middle name, Zaner, was his father’s name. Terry graduated from South High School. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


Terry spent much of his time working with computers and audiovisual technologies. He could be frequently found working on and making copies of family genealogy, Latter-day Saint prophets, Presidents of The United States, and other famous people. Terry participated in Cub Scouts and the Boy Scout program with his mother, Orpha, serving as Den Leader. He used his imagination and wrote several short stories about different places and people that he titled, “Dreams.”


Among the places he worked were Columbus Center, Deseret Industries, and Hugger Mugger. Terry’s trademark greeting to everyone he met was, “Have a safe one,” and he found it made others smile, which made him happy.


Terry was preceded in death by his parents and his younger brother, Neil. He is survived by his older sister, Carolyn Bird; younger sister, Brenda Hinkley and her husband Richard. Terry will be buried in the Alpine City Cemetery near his parents and younger brother, Neil Alan Ross.


A Graveside Service will be held Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 11:00AM at Alpine City Cemetery. There will be an open mic to share memories, thoughts and experiences about Terry.


“Have a safe one."

 

Neil Alan Ross


Neil Alan Ross, age 65, passed away September 4, 2023 in West Bountiful, Utah. Born December 29, 1957 to Zaner Wightman Ross and Orpha Terry Ross. He graduated from South High School. Neil married Destiny Nicole Ross in Judsonia, Arkansas. Neil was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


Neil is the youngest of 4 children. He preferred being active in life and found many unique jobs to make a living. He ventured out on his own promptly after graduating from South High School. Neil spent much of his life enjoying the open road as a truck driver. Before his trucking career, Neil had worked with a traveling circus in Texas. He was active in Cub Scouts and in the Boy Scouts of America programs. Neil was known by his friends as "Red" because of his bright red hair. He liked to be out in nature doing just about everything; hiking, camping, fishing, or biking.


Neil was preceded in death by his parents and the love of his life, his wife Destiny. They spent several years near Destiny's family in
Arkansas, then Destiny proposed it was time they move to Utah to be near Neil's family. They bought a home in Tooele, Utah. After
his one true love passed away, he was truly devastated and was never able to fill the hole she left in his heart. He is survived by his
two older sisters, Carolyn Bird and Brenda Hinkley and her husband Richard.


Neil will be buried in the Alpine City Cemetery near his parents and older brother Terry Zaner Ross. Services will be held Saturday,
November 11 at 11 am. We will have open mike, where you can share any thoughts and experiences about Neil.
