Mark Gross


Mark Gross, 47, a resident of Cleveland, went home to be with The Lord, surrounded by his family on Monday, Sept. 11, 2017.

He was born on April 29, 1970, in Harlan, Ky.

He was a member of the Rev. Life Church. All that knew him, knew him for his extraordinary work ethic. Even in his illness, he would be working hard in the sawmill. In his free time, he enjoyed watching Nascar and his beloved University of Kentucky Wildcats. More than anything, he enjoyed spending time with his family. He was a loving son, husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend, who will be dearly missed by all those that knew him.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents and two special uncles.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving wife, Tammy Gross; mother, Sherry Patterson; father, Jim Gross (Angie); children: Justin Gross and Justin Welzenbach; grandchildren: Willow Gross and McKenna Welzenbach; siblings: Jeremy Hall (Thelma), Angela (Chris) DiCola, and Jennifer (Victor) Figueroa; father and mother-in-law, Don and Charlene Deibert; brother-in-law, Tim Deibert; aunts and uncles, Pam Hostuttler, Allen Thomas and Sheila and Dale Souble; special friends: Larry and Linda Creagan; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Life memorial service is planned for 5 p.m. on today, Sept. 13, 2017, at the Rev. Life Church, 1525 Jones Avenue S.W., Cleveland, with Brother Anthony Traylor and Pastor Charlen Bradford officiating.

The family will receive friends two hours prior, from 3 to the 5 p.m. service time at the church.

Companion Funeral and Cremation Service and the Cody family are honored to assist the Gross family with these arrangements.
