Don Gross, 90, of Rochester, formerly of Culver, who spent many winters in Florida, passed away there.

Don had said, "When it is my time to go, I will go." Feb. 1, 2013, was his time to join the presence of Our Lord.

Don is survived by his wife, Eileen Smith, who he married on Oct. 29, 1945. Together, they enjoyed many years of camping, fishing, gardening, ice and roller skating, dancing and, most of all, family.

Don, an Army veteran, served his country during WWII. He was in the field artillery. He served under General George Patton in the Battle of the Bulge. After his discharge, he was one of six men who carpooled to Bendix, where he worked 30 years until his retirement.

In addition to his wife, Don is also survived by his six children, Jim Gross, of Argos, Jerry (Janeal) Gross, of Shelbyville, Ky., Jean (Ron) Brown, of Anchorage, Alaska, Ron (Bettie) Gross, of Kewanna, Dan (Deb) Gross, of Leiters Ford, and Donna (Joe) Higgins, of Roxboro, N.C. He is also survived by many grand- and great-grandchildren.

Don was preceded in death by his parents and 11 brothers and sisters.

A memorial service for Don will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2013, at the Odom Funeral Home in Culver.

Friends may visit with the family from 9:45 a.m. until service time.

Burial will follow in the Culver Masonic Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the donor's choice of charities.

The Odom Funeral Home, Culver, is in charge of arrangements.
