Obituary for Thomas Philip Gross

Thomas P. Gross, age 74, of Rubicon, Wisconsin passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at home surrounded by his loving family.

Thomas was born on September 25, 1943 to Walter and Gazella (nee Hoffer) Gross in Milwaukee. He was united in marriage to Susan Bartlett on August 30, 1969 at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Oshkosh.

Since retirement Tom spent many a day at the Jack Russell Library in Hartford. He was a deep thinker and always has an answer for whatever Sue or the children needed. He lived by the word of God, by the U.S. Constitution and Amendments. While visiting, one could always find Tom in the garage listening to his talk radio. He always has a project going from cutting the grass keeping the snow at bay in the driveway. He loved to be home where Sue and his children cared for him with love up to the moment the Lord and Mother Mary called him home. He is now Home with the Lord, Mother Mary and the Feast Day of the Queenship of Mary. Tom was a proud member of the Hartford VFW Post 8834 and Color Guard. He was always honored when the call came in to help give military rites for a brother or sisters funeral. He enjoyed going to his grandkids sporting events and Christmas programs, he loved them. He also enjoyed spending many summers with his family going on vacations in Eagle River being by the water as well as hunting days with Matt and friends up-north. He was a hardworking man with a very gentle soul who loved and worried about his family. Holidays with his siblings won’t be the same.

Thomas is survived by his beloved wife Susan; loving children, Matt (Barb), Renee Gross; grandchildren Paityn, Garrett, and Harper; brother, Richard (Alice) Gross of Oshkosh; sisters, Marilyn (Dave) Jantz of Oshkosh, Chris (Mike) Bean of Wheaton, IL, Judy (Robert) Schram of Sequim, WA; mother-in-law, Evelyn Bartlett of New London; brothers-in-law, Lee (Lynn) and Thomas (Teresa) both of MN, and Ronald (Carol) of Berlin; Jeff (Kathy) of Black Creek, and Jim (LuAnn) Bartlett of Hortonville; and sisters-in-law, Sally J. Bartlett of Appleton, Mary (Chris) Hansen of Greenville, and Dawn (Brian) Hilker of New London. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, his kitties and his wonderful friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents and father-in-law, Willis Bartlett.
