Douglas S. Gross
DOUGLAS S. GROSS (1930 – 2014) Douglas Gross of Aventura, Florida and formerly Hollywood, Florida and Montreal, Canada passed away suddenly but peacefully on April 28, 2014. He was born to the late Maurice and Germaine Gross on May 23, 1930 and was raised in Westmount, Quebec. Doug graduated from Westmount High School and McGill University. He was the beloved husband of Joan Reinisch for 52 years; a loving father to Billy (Debi), Bobby (Shirley), and Audrey (Brian); a proud Papa to Jake, Sam, Maddie, Jessie, Kayla, Eden and Jordan; and a devoted brother to Shirley Gross Miller, who preceded him in death. During his business career, Doug helped his father operate Comfort Kimona and Dress Company. In addition, he invested in real estate and in the stock market, which he continued to do when he moved to Florida. Throughout his extraordinary life, Doug was involved in numerous community activities, in a variety of capacities. He was the first-ever recipient of a Young Leadership award in the North American Federation movement, known in Montreal as the Barkoff Young Leadership Award. He later established a community service award in Broward County for young leaders. While keeping himself busy in the stock market and devoting himself to his family and the community, he also pursued his many passions, including golf, boating, technology and cars. His fondest and most enduring hobby – photography -- ignited when he got his first camera as a Bar Mitzvah gift. The camera became his constant companion, leaving a legacy of its own for his family and friends with lifelong, cherished memories through his countless pictures. A funeral service was held at Levitt Weinstein Memorial Chapel on Wednesday, April 30th. In their eulogy, family members spoke of his great sense of humor, and expressed gratitude for his unconditional love, generosity, kind heart, and devotion to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him and loved him. His contribution and inspiration will endure forever.
