Jared Russell Crosby, 36, passed away at his home Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, in Eagar. He was born March 4, 1977, in Provo, Utah, the son of J. Russell Crosby and Becky Hendrickson Crosby.

Jared graduated from Round Valley High School in 1995. He was an Eagle Scout. He served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Tucson. He worked as a courtesy clerk at Safeway and as an aide and volunteer at the schools. He was a member of the White Mountain Fiber Guild and enjoyed crocheting, weaving and beading.

Jared loved playing hymns on the piano, sunsets, wildflowers, children and especially his family. He often described his own life in these words: “I have the best life. I am so lucky.” Perhaps this was because he was always thinking of ways to make others happy. His family would like to thank all who helped make Jared’s life meaningful and happy.

He is survived by his parents, Russell and Becky; brothers: Daniel Crosby, Michael (Jen) Crosby, David (Jodi) Crosby, Matthew (Kathryn) Crosby and Jonathan (Melina) Crosby; sisters Laura (Colton) Finch, Michelle Crosby and Kerri (Ryan) Quinlan; grandparents Roger and Shirlee Hendrickson and Carma Crosby.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Aaron Thomas Crosby, and grandfather John Harris Crosby.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Eagar Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Main Street in Eagar. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service; also, a visitation will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at Burnham Mortuary in Eagar.

Interment will follow services at the Eagar Cemetery.
