JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A 107-year-old Wyoming man who lived in a cabin he built by hand in Jackson Hole has died.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/2pkLIzK ) that Leonard Ross died May 3 at his home.

His son, Jim Ross, says his father’s health had been declining almost daily over about the last week.

Ross turned 107 on Jan. 11. He celebrated his final birthday at his home, pulling down his oxygen mask to blow out the candles of his cake.

The Ross family has a history of living long. Leonard Ross‘ mother lived to 104, grandfather made it to 97, his father lived into his 90s and his brother to 101.

Services for Ross are scheduled for May 19 at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Jackson.
