Retired Merchant Had Been Ill One Week
Fred W. Gross, 71, of 1131 Lincoln Ave., a clothing and glove salesman, and a retired Ann Arbor merchant, died this morning at St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital after a week's illness.
Mr. Gross for 25 years operated a clothing store here, first at 115 E. Liberty St., and then at 309 S. Main St.
He had retired from the business in 1930, but since then had continued to sell clothing on the road for the E. V. Price Co. and gloves for the firm of Boyce and Lazarus.
Mr. Gross was born in Saline on March 24, 1877, the son of J. Fred and Christine Lutz Gross. He came to Ann Arbor in 1892 and had lived here ever since.
An active member of Zion Lutheran Church, he also was a member of the Brotherhood of the church, and of the Kiwanis club.
Surviving are the wife, the former Minnie Grayer; two sons, Harold F. Gross of Lansing and Walter W. Gross of Kansas City, Mo.; a daughter, Mrs. William Darichuck of Ypsilanti; two sisters, Mrs. Ralph Perrine and Miss Clara Gross, both of Ann Arbor; and six grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Muehlig Funeral Chapel, with Rev. E. C. Stellhorn officiating. Burial will be in Washtenong Memorial Park. Friends may call at the Chapel.
