Memorial for Ross Trammell Thursday

SUMMIT COUNTY – A memorial service for Ross Trammell Buchanan of Summit Cove, who died May 22, will be at 4 p.m. Thursday at Lord of the Mountain Lutheran Church in Dillon.

Ross was born June 15, 1981. A Summit High School graduate, Ross grew up playing in the mountains and graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder in the spring of 2003 with a degree in Spanish.

Ross loved to travel and had an appetite for adventure, exploring Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain, Portugal, Scotland and London.

He will be remembered as a handsome, determined, charismatic and romantic young man who loved his family intensely.

Most importantly, he will be remembered as a compassionate person who loved to make others happy. In high school, Ross was captain of the alpine ski team and played varsity soccer.

Throughout college, he studied abroad and ran his own painting business. Ross’ vibrancy, spar and loyal friendship will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ross Buchanan Memorial Fund to be established at FirstBank.
