February 27th, 1948, Ronnie Lynn Bair was born to Hyrum Virgil and Mildred Mae Bair. He had to fight to come into the world and remained a fighter his whole life. Despite several strokes, heart attacks, and kidney failure, he went out on his own terms on August 26th, 2021.
He grew up with four brothers and together they certainly tested their mother’s patience. His own four children have, in turn, tested his patience.
Ronnie has had many loves in his life: M&M’s, the Yankees, and his dog Trixie, but most of all, his family. He met Nancy in Park City, doing several drive-by’s to get a better look at her in her daisy dukes. He later won her a stuffed animal, and as they say, the rest is history. They were married on January 9th, 1970. Today, he lives on through his children: Lance, Blake, Lynn, and Amber. He has thoroughly loved 10 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
Ronnie was always quick to volunteer coaching his kid’s baseball teams, quick to slip ice cream truck money to his grandkids, and quick to sneak food under the table to the dogs. He was the type of person to give another his coat and claim he wasn’t even cold while shivering. He has always been hardworking, dedicating 36 years of his life working for UDOT.
He is greeted in heaven by his family. His father with open arms, his mother with her special chicken noodle soup, and his childhood dog, Sandy. Maybe even his favorite baseball player, Mickey Mantle. The Yankees win!!
A viewing will be held on September 11, 2021, from the hours of 9:00 – 10:45 am followed by a funeral service at 11:00 am at the Larkin Sunset Gardens Chapel, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road, Sandy, Utah. Interment to follow at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery.

Thank you for letting us know. Thanks for the many memories especially little league baseball. Ron knew just what to teach the boys, even those who caught some butterflies, or watched the planes overhead to begin with. Great memories for all of our family. Loved the picture...definitely him. Our love hugs and condolences.
