Robert J. Gross - Class Of 1952

Robert J. "Bob" Gross came to California in the mid 1950's with a friend on a road trip. He decided to stay in California, where he met his wife Katherine Bondan when both sang in the St. Charles Choir. Bob and Kathy married in 1961 and started a family right away. Seven years later, Bob and Kathy were the parents of three boys Jonathan (Deceased), Claude and Paul.

Bob worked as a material manager for several manufacturing firms until he made a career change to work with the Boys and Girls Club of Conejo Valley. There, he oversaw the build outs of the different locations and participated in the fundraiser events. He took great pride in providing for his family and the community. He was very passionately involved with his local Home Owners Association and even ran for public office. Bob is survived by his wife, Katherine; sons, Claude (wife Michelle and two grandsons Tyler and Justin) and Paul (wife Katharine).

A Memorial Mass was held on March 17, 2012 at St. Mels Church in Woodland Hills, CA
