Sanford P. “Sandy” Gross

GROSS: Sanford P. “Sandy” Gross, on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Beloved father of Keshira haLev/Sarah (Tim) Fife and Rachel H. Gross. Sandy is survived by three former wives including Susan K. Gross, mother of Keshira and Rachel. Eldest brother of Marshall (Lorna), Howard (Marcy) and A. Jay Gross. Also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of extended family and beloved friends. Born on Sept. 1, 1935, Sandy lived much of his life in Pittsburgh and was a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School, the University of Pittsburgh, and Duquesne Law School. Sandy was a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association for 50 years, and in his spare time, he was an avid fisherman and a longtime collector of antiques, glassware and art. He was happiest in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, or anywhere else, as long as his adoring children were nearby. Sandy and his family owe a debt of gratitude to the staff at AHAVA and Sivitz Hospice for their exquisite care and support, and his children will forever be grateful for the way they tended to him with such compassion and good humor.
