Louis Edwards Gross, 89, of Inverness, IL. Beloved husband of Anne, nee Cantwell.

Proud grandfather of Laura (Elliot) Hickman, Lisa Schill, Brian (Elisabeth) Gross, Michelle (Brendon) Misik, Dr. Mark (Dr. Neha) Etherington, Anna Etherington, Matthew Etherington and great grandfather of Mason and Maya Misik.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis F. Edwards, Mary Lou and Henry R. Gross.
Louis was dedicated to his family and his work. He was President of Unity Manufacturing Company, Chicago, from 1951 until 1999 and remained active until 2014. An avid sports fan, Louis enjoyed playing tennis and golf and was a longtime member of Inverness Golf Club. He was most happy when surrounded by his family whom he supported in so many ways through the years. Through the efforts of wonderful caregivers and hospice support, Louis was able to remain comfortable in the house he built 62 years ago, next to his bride of 66 years.

A Memorial Service to celebrate his wonderful life will be held at 2 pm on Saturday, July 8th, 2017 at St Mark’s Episcopal Church, 337 Ridge Road, Barrington Hills, IL with reception following at Inverness Golf Club, 102 Roselle Rd, Inverness, IL.
