Not sure what to say?

Rest In Peace, George, and deepest sympathies to the entire family. George was my teacher, then my coach, then my colleague, and then my friend. I could not have asked for, or deserved, a better or more honorable one. He was such a positive influence for so many of us; always honest, always forthright, and always willing to go the extra mile to help anyone out. So it was to his final days, with George leading his fellow community members in walks and other exercises. The Eagle is now soaring,...

Mr.Gross was such a wonderful person, human, teacher. Always with a smile, always positive. When I think of him I always smile. I was lucky enough to have seen him in January at a school event. We spoke for about 10 minutes or so and I got to give him a hug and tell him how wonderful it was to see him again...and it definitely was wonderful to see him again. RIP. This earth was lucky enough to have you here.

1st Corinthians 15 verse 22 comes to mind. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. Seems like yesterday when Coach G, coach Kyle, coach Mann and I worked together creating the Greater Cleveland track coaches association. It was truly an honor to be a small part I'll just wonderful life on Earth. Sincerely, Wayne Gray

The Chase Family sends their deepest sympathy for the loss of Mr. Gross. Many of us were students in his gym classes or members of the track teams. He was the kindest, nicest person who cared so much for his students. Our mother was a secretary in the elementary student and she and our father thought the world of George. We will keep all of you in positive thoughts and prayers. The Chase Family

May Coach Gross rest in peace. He was a wonderful mentor and escorted me to Columbus during my 1979 track state competition. I had the privilege of visiting him last year sharing old photos, and he even remembered the weather during the 1979 state meet. He is forever in my heart. Sending sympathy to his family.

To the family of Mr. Gross, my deepest sympathy. I know that I'm incapable of expressing any words that have not already been said about Mr. Gross. However, it would be remiss of me to not attempt to express my feelings for such a great man. Even if such expression is for my own recognition of his greatness and impact on me personally. Mr. Gross had the greatest influence on me as my teacher and coach during my 12 years of elementary and high school. From being my elementary physical...

Mr. Gross was a wonderful coach and mentor. He supported our entire family (classes 67-82). He influenced so many young people. What a terrific career and life.

Warm Memories of my Uncle George! I fondly remember:
you always opening your home to me when I would come to visit;
when we would compare our crooked pinky fingers;
when we would share a bowl of popcorn or ice cream for an after dinner snack;
when you would share your frustration that the deer had just eaten the flowers you had planted;
your joy in starting the walking club at Vista;
your patience when you would take me to Dunkin Donuts to get two dozen...

To the family of George Gross my deepest sympathy. I wish we met George 10 years earlier. He shared pictures and stories a couple of years ago at Dave Jacklitch funeral. And we met him at his house in Parma Bonnie and I. What a joy it was someone talking about our family history and how George's dad set up the family reunions in the parks. George treated Bonnie and Jack and I to his favorite Chinese restaurant around the corner from his house I drove George. I met up with him one other time...
