Ross David Jackson left this world for a happier place on July 9, 2018.

He was the third child of Frank and Pearl L. Jackson and was born November 21, 1919 on a cold, snowy day at home on his family’s ranch in Randolph and died on the same ranch as was always his desire.

He went to school in Randolph and graduated from Utah State University. Ross married Nola Cornia on March 20, 1943 in Houston, TX. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They recently celebrated 75 years together.

Ross served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Northwestern States Mission.
After his mission he served in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II. He was stationed in England and served in the European Theater.

After the war Ross worked for the government with the Native Americans on a reservation in New Mexico for several years and then returned to Randolph to help run the family ranch, where he spent the rest of his years.

Ross had numerous opportunities to serve in the community and in his church and has been a great influence on many lives.

Ross and Nola’s posterity include six children, Jeralene (Reed) Groll, Judy (Kent) Stuart, Nancy (Rauhn) Panting, David (Cindy) Jackson, Bill (Kelli) Jackson and Robert (Jerilin) Jackson. He has 34 grandchildren, 73 great grandchildren and 6 great great grandchildren who he loved dearly.
