He was a loving husband to his wife of 46 years and a loving father to two daughters. He enjoyed a decade of playing keyboard and singing backup in Dr Bob and the East Cobb Snobs as well as the Psychics, 60’s & 70’s cover bands. He was a practicing radiologist, and he dedicated his time to the Cobb County Medical Society and the WellStar Board of Trustees. He enjoyed waterskiing, snow skiing, golf, and traveling to warm places with dear friends and family. His wit are intelligence are dearly missed. He is survived by his wife, Karen L Cross; his daughters, Brandy Cross (Joel Sciranko) and Brianne (Tom Larimer); grandchildren; his brother John Cross (Karen W Cross); and many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in his memory to the WellStar Foundation, the Cobb County Medical Society Foundation, or the American Kidney Fund.
