SURFSIDE BEACH—Robert P. Gross passed peacefully at his home on May 31.

He was born Feb. 6, 1933, in Mt. Vernon, New York, to the late Mary and Herman Gross. 

He was a loving father to his sons Ken, Steven, Martin; daughter Gail and seven grandchildren.

Mr. Gross was a loving husband to his wife Elizabeth who welcomed him during his passing. He was also a younger brother to Herman (Babe) Gross.

Mr. Gross served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War until 1953. He was a very giving, hardworking man who put in 35 years at Delwood delivering milk. We loved him dearly and he will be greatly missed by all. Rest in peace. God bless.

A graveside service was held June 4 at Hillcrest Cemetery.

Goldfinch Funeral Home, Beach Chapel, was in charge of arrangements.
