Our beloved husband, dad and grandpa, Ronald “Kay” Gross, 85, passed away at his home in the care of his loving family on Aug 19, 2022. Kay, a lifelong resident of Lyman Wyoming, was born Nov 2, 1936 in a 2-story house in Lyman Wyoming. He is the fourth child of six born to Simon Delmar “Delly” and Chloie Minerva Bluemel Gross.
Kay graduated Lyman High School in 1954. He then served overseas in the army after the Korean Conflict. Kay loved ranching and took over his father’s ranch outside of Lyman after several years doing various construction jobs. On June 29th 1981 he married the love of his life, Nona. Together, their two families were made into one. Their time was spent fishing, camping, horseback riding and packing with their family. This is what made Kay the happiest.
