Robert H. Gross
May 16, 2022 of Gladwyne, PA. Beloved husband for nearly 52 years of Diane (nee Abramson); loving father of Carrie (Matt) Pestronk and Benjamin (Rachel) Gross; adoring poppy of Max, Zac, Lilly, and Sylvie; and devoted brother-in-law of Debi Abramson. He was also a daddy to his three beloved whippets, one greyhound, and one cat. Services and interment for Bob were held Thursday, May 19, at West Laurel Hill Cemetery. Born in 1941, the only child of Lillian C Gross and Louis H Gross, Bob grew up in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia. He graduated Central High School, the 211, and Temple University Class of 1964. After his education, Bob joined his father in commercial real estate development, expanding and growing the business for almost 40 years. Outside of his career, Bob was focused on his family, charitable causes, and his beloved Temple Owls basketball teams. When people think of Bob they smile, recalling some funny story or antic of his. His happy place was the quiet of his office, the crackle of the fire, and his animals nearby. Whether enjoying oysters in Nantucket or savoring a LaCollina meal, he enjoyed feeding body and soul in the company of those whom he loved. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (pancan.org) or an organization of the donor’s choice.
