Ross David Lindhardt, 79, passed away March 3, 2017 at the Franklin County Medical Center, in Preston, ID from the results of a month-long bout with pneumonia. He was born December 7, 1937 in Winder, ID to Marion Joseph and Marie Emmett Lindhardt. He served in the Western States Mission and moved to SLC where he worked at Hercules Powder Company on the Minuteman 2 missile and belonged to the Utah National Guard. He met Joan Brower in Salt Lake, and, on a good Friday the 13th September 1963, they were married in the Logan Temple (a match made in heaven.) They lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, Mink Creek, Idaho and Banida, Idaho.
He was an honest, hardworking dairy farmer who could look over the cows and land and know what needed to be done. He was a loving husband and father who had faith in his children. He loved and cared about people and loved to talk to everyone. He was always a man of his word. He liked to surprise people. He loved his cat Boots, trips, auctions, cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, home teaching, and the Utah Jazz. If any of the family or friends had a problem, he would come to the rescue and know exactly what to do. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved serving others in various callings in the Church as Bishop, Bishop's Counselor, teacher of the youth in YM and Sunday School. He will be missed by everyone who was lucky to be loved by him.
