Ira Theodore (Bud) Ransom passed away peacefully August 19, 2016 surrounded by family and loved ones. He was born July 4, 1929 in Champion, NE to Ray T. Ransom and Eva (Hiatt) Ransom. On June 19, 1951 he married Eleanor Jean Heskett in McCook, NE. They have 4 children: Vic (Suebee) Ransom of Fairfax, VA; Steve (Rhonda) Ransom of Eden, UT; Miriam (Les) Lofquist of Byron Center, MI and Connie (Dick) Viekman of Gallup, NM. Ira is survived by his wife, children; one brother, Jack (Wanda) Ransom of Tucson, AZ; 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. Since 1956 Ira pastored at: Brigham City (UT) Bible Church, Cache Valley Bible Church (Logan, UT) and Grace Bible Church (Tremonton, UT). We grieve but not as those who have no hope. We have the promise of God that for those who have put their trust in Jesus alone for salvation “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Corinthians 5:8. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday August 27, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at Kaysville Bible Church, 181 N Flint St, Kaysville, UT. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Pioneer Bible Camp Chapel Project, P.O. Box 644, Eden, Utah 84310
Dear Eleanor and family, We are so sad to hear of your loss, but are praising the Lord with you that Ira is in the presence of his Savior. We have loved visiting with you and him over the years and were much blessed in the privilege of having you both stay with us twice, as well as having the privilege to stay with you once. May the Lord give you all great comfort and strength in the coming weeks. Love,
Carlton & Elizabeth Shrum and Family

Dear Ransom's ~ What a Legacy that your father left behind! I can't count the countless hours/mile's that the Ransom's drove to come to our church so we would hear a sermon. And I will never forget that! Thank you for your faithful service to Him!
