I have been searching for him! Mr. Gross was the best admissions counselor for BMC. I am so sorry to see that he passed and I wasn't able to see him since BMC days. My prayers and condolences are with the family.

Been thinking about my cousin a lot over the last couple of weeks and miss him dearly. Here are some of the words and places that won't be quite the same without him...John was the funny cousin and some of this will only put a memory smile on a few faces: Alpo Pies, facing out the back of a station wagon, Coke not pop, the quarry, Brown Bash, egg toss, corn hole, square dancing at a wedding reception in a fire hall, Covington, Genoa, Oak Harbor. Taking comfort knowing that Gramma Brown is laughing again. Miss ya man. Cousin Mic

We send our deepest sympathy to all the Gross family. We know how much John will be missed. We are fortunate enough to have been his uncle, aunt and cousin. We are so proud of the caring that he had for other people. Uncle Earl will miss the "back and forth" he always had with John, but John always came out one step ahead of him. Hopefully the sorrow will be over shadowed by all the good memories of John. Love to all, Uncle Earl, Aunt Pat and Cousin Ron

John was always so loving and caring, especially towards his family. Weekends together as kids on Superior Street in Genoa at Grandma and Grandpa's were some of the best memories. He will definitely be missed. Love to all of you.

To Ken, Kathy, his children, and entire family, I am so sorry for the loss of John. I talked to him at length at the funeral of his grandmother, my aunt Liz and I have said numerous times to my other "sister", Pat Wittman, he was such a nice, friendly, happy, handsome young man. May you all have the comfort of knowing how much he was thought of. God bless you all.
