Allen Gross, 82, of Kersey, Colo., formerly of Eaton, Colo., passed away March 30, 2010.

He was born in Crook, Colo., to Daniel and Gladys Gross. He graduated from the eighth grade and started a life full of love and adventure.

He met and married the love of his life; Alyce Catherine Yahn, Jan. 14, 1945 in Ft. Morgan, Colo., at the Justice of the Peace. From their blessed union came four children, one of which he delivered in the blizzard of 1949.

Always a cowboy at heart, he worked on several ranches in the Sterling, Colo., and Wray, Colo., area until eventually moving to Eaton, Colo. There he became a custodian for Eaton School District until he started A&A Janitorial service in 1969. Living in Eaton, Colo., he was very involved in the community and the volunteer Fire Department. He was awarded “Fireman of the Year” in 1986 and continued to serve until he retired from the Eaton Volunteer Fire Department. Allen spent his life sharing himself with his family. Camping, motorcycling, and roping were some of his favorite pastimes.

He worked hard all his life and passed his work ethic on to all his children and grandchildren. He retired from the janitorial business in 1997, one year after his wife of 51 years passed on. He moved to Kersey, Colo., and became involved in the senior center there and made many friends throughout the last 10 years. After his retirement he was able to pursue his love of roping and riding. For 10 years, he never missed a chance to rope with his grandsons and enjoy every moment he could horseback. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

He is survived by a brother, Robert (Ellen) Gross of Sierra Vista, Ariz.; three children, Barbara (Elvin) Patten of Eaton, Colo., Pamela (Donald) Forster of Briggsdale, Colo., and Randy (Lisa) Gross of Kersey, Colo.; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Alyce, companion Unice Hoar, brother Leroy, and son Gary.

Services were held April 5, 2010 at Stoddard Funeral Home in Greeley, Colo.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice and Palliative care of Northern Colorado, in care of Stoddard Funeral Home, 3205 W. 28th St., Greeley, Colo., 80634.
