Through the moves, Paul made many cherished friendships that remain to this day. A little later in his life, Paul and Laura, enjoyed many years living with her parents Morlin and Jean. Paul will always be remembered for making sure his family was always taken care of.

Paul is survived by his beloved children Guy and Kevin (Anna) Gross, adoring grandchildren Kevin, Emily, Nicholas, and Ian Gross, his dearest siblings Jane Sawyer, Mary (Tom) Herbstritt, and Gary (Susan) Gross. He is preceded in death by his loving wife Laura (nee Johnson) Gross, and parents Otto and Mary Gross.

I remember Paul from my days as an auditor. He was the controller and was quite the man when it came to our audits. Always a gentleman but tough. Later he went to Arizona and our company (Bernstein Hoffman) had the audit. Once again we met.

Rest in peace Paul. You will always be remembered as a good businessman with a heart.

Paul was a very close friend of mine for over 75 years.

Two of my fondest memories is bike riding which we did almost daily during the season and drinking beer as teenagers in south Oak Park alleys

Although we could go long times without talking we had a special bond and I miss his calls and him being there when when I called.
