September 9, 1951 – September 8, 2019
Ross Edward Bair, 67, of Estes Park, passed away Sunday, September 8, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Des Moines, Iowa on September 9, 1951, he was the son of Raymond and Darlene Bair. Ross went to High School at Hoover and enlisted in the Navy in 1969-1971 as a Machinist.
In 1987, Ross moved his family to Estes Park. Ross drove a semi-truck for many years and owned and operated Lone Pine Collision from 1995-2001, before selling it. He retired from Estes Valley Collision two years ago. Ross had a passion for cars; loved restoring and working on them. Ross loved to make people laugh, and everyone he met, has a “Rosco” story to tell. Ross enjoyed taking road trips back to Iowa to see his family, going to Blackhawk, fishing, loved his guns and going to the shooting range, and spending time with his faithful companion, Mindy the beagle.
Ross is survived by his children whom he loved so much; Jeremy Bair and grandaughter Madison of Ft. Collins and Shannon DeJaynes and grandson Jake of Estes Park. Ross is also survived by his brother Dennis (Lisa) Bair of Urbandale, IA, brother Darwin (Carol) Bair of Altoona, IA and sister Karen ( Dave ) Heaviland of Avon, IN; several nieces and nephews and his beagle, Mindy.
Ross is preceeded in death by his parents.
There will be no funeral service held, as Ross did not want that. A family get together will be planned in the future.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to any of your local animal shelters. Ross was an avid dog lover, a donation in his name, to help out animals, would be something he would have loved!

Ross was quite the guy!
I deliver car parts to Estes Valley Collision where Ross worked.
We always had such great talks, he never failed to get me to laughing!
I'll always treasure the time I got to spend with him, and got to know him.
As I visited with Ross, "Mindy" was always at his side and that just added to the pleasure of our visits.
We shared our thoughts on the world and many other things.
Ross you will be sorely missed.
God Bless, my friend.
Ross, you will be sorely missed, I'm so glad I had the oppertunity to get to know you, God Bless my friend.

Ross came through for me in a big way in 2016 right after I sold my house in the Big Thompson Canyon. I was getting ready to retire and counting on house money to support my new “no money coming in “ status. My house sold before I had something lined up. I was crossing my fingers and trusting when Ross came through with a tiny apartment in the place where he lived. I was so grateful and loved being his neighbor for the time I was there. We spent many hours just hanging on the deck talking dogs. Good neighbor; good friend!
