He was born July 4, 1955 in Heber City, UT to Newell Ross and Erma Marie (Carpenter) Robertson Gross. He married the love of his life Sally (Saxton) Robertson on October 28, 1979 in Elko, Nevada. The couple chose to make their home in the Bridger Valley where they raised three beautiful daughters.
Mike proudly served his country in the Army from 1974-1978; his service took him to Germany where he worked as a track mechanic for the self-propelled Howitzer Unit. Mike was hired at Allied/Tata Chemicals August 5, 1978 and retired on April 1st, 2015.
He was a hard-working man that never asked anyone to do a job that he was not willing to do himself. He took pride in everything that he did and he never gave less than a full days work. He was fair and selfless man, who would give the shirt off of his back for anyone in need. Mike was a loving husband and father, he enjoyed spending all his free time boating, fishing, camping or working in the garage on old projects.
He is survived by his wife Sally, daughter Stacey (Kyle and Lillian) Moore, Mejia (Eric and Zayda) Williams and Shawna (Darrell, Kendall, Gracelynn) Chandler; 4 siblings Barbara Kay Rider, Judy Marie Gross, Jim Newell Robertson, Kim R Robertson.
He was preceded in death by both his parents (Erma and Newell), step father Mont Gross, brother Kevin C.
A special thank you too Pat Kelly, Becky Cushing, Cowboy Cares and Darrell Chandler for their commitment to the family.
The family would like to invite all those who knew Mike to come and share their stories and memories in this casual celebration of life. This celebration will be held in Fort Bridger, WY at the American Legion Hall Saturday September 21, 2019 from 4:00-7:00 PM.
