EAST RICHFORD- David Owen Gross, 74, passed away in his home in East Richford on the evening of March 8, 2023. He was born February 1st, 1949, in East Richford, where he remained a lifelong resident.

David enjoyed watching football, baseball, and Law and Order. He loved spending entire afternoons on his Kubota tractor, working the land he had spent his formative years on the family farm with his siblings. And later on, he enjoyed having a beer on the front porch with his friends and neighbors.

He was known to greet everyone with a smile, and shared his strong work ethic in everything he did.
