September 19, 1936 - February 21, 2014. My Georgie accepted the challenge and fought the battle without complaint. In the place where he is going, he will take with him the love of those who loved him, the warmth of those who cared the happiness and memories and all the magic that he shared. I, Bonnie Howard Gross, was blessed to be the beloved wife for 43 years of my devoted Georgie who was my lifelong companion. He was my magic and the builder of all my dreams. We were blessed to have a son, Todd T. Gross and his loving wife, Elise along with our beautiful 2 granddaughters and 6 grandsons from that one son. He was also gifted by a previous marriage 1 son, Greg Gross and his loving wife, Jolie and also a daughter, Donna and her husband, Kenny, which gave him more grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was survived by 1 sister, Lynn Ann Probst and her husband, Bobby. His love for God and his church, St. Clement of Rome which brought my darling many friends and so much joy in his life. Georgie served his country in the United States Navy during the Cuban Crisis. He started his day with a smile and a whistle and gave his love to all that come his way. He will be embraced in heaven by his loving mother, Pearl Vicari Gross and father, George Gross, Sr. He will also leave behind his brother-in-law, Floyd Howard and his wife, Laura and all his nieces and nephews and Godchildren. And now knowing that his faith has sustained him, he is seeing beauty beyond belief, "What eye has not seen and ear has not heard." My Georgie you have my heart and my love always.
