Teton County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded Christmas Day to the suicide of an 85-year-old man in Alta.
Gary Lynn Green died by suicide, the Teton County Coroner’s office ruled.
According to an obituary in the Teton Valley News, a private burial was held Wednesday in Alta. Born in Idaho Falls, Green grew up in and always called Teton Valley home. His family will remember him as “a hard worker, a man of principle, and a tireless generator of nicknames that seemed to always stick.”
He leaves behind a wife, four siblings, five children, 24 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren.
