Gross of New Jersey, wife of his late brother, Dr. Lawrence Gross. He was an avid sports fan and shared this hobby with his grandchildren.

A Graveside Service will be held on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at 1:00 PM at Beth Israel Cemetery. The family would like attendees to bring an umbrella to ensure social distancing. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to: Degel Israel Synagogue in Watertown, NY and Congregation Beth Israel in Fayetteville, NC.
