Frank Gross Obituary

Frank Gross, age 77, of Fort Wayne, Indiana and Bradenton, Florida passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on December 3, 2023. He worked at GE for 33 years before retiring early in 1997. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and proudly served his country on the U.S.S. Wright. He enjoyed spending summers at Big Long Lake with his family, where he liked to fish, ski, and boat. Frank loved going to Florida for the winter. He was passionate about gardening, garage sales, and antiques and was always looking for a good bargain! He was also an excellent dance partner and an all-around “nice guy” who was loved by many. 

Frank is survived by his fiancée, Paula Voland, who cared for him tirelessly during his last years. He is also survived by his children, Angela Lord (Diana Faris), Brad Gross (Patty), Melinda Bolinger, and Lea Klug, and grandchildren, Lauren Gross, Sommer Bolinger, Danny, Charlie, Mary, Evie, and Connor Gross & Lucian Klug. Brothers Steve Gross (Donna), Greg Gross (Micheale), sister-in-law Sylvia Gross, and many nieces and nephews. 

Frank was preceded in death by his second wife, Deborah Gross; mother, Agnes Gross; father, Robert Gross; and beloved brother, John Gross.
