Message: Robert H Gross was a remarkable man. He tracked down every family member of the crew of the Misery Agent, Liberator B 24 and not only visited them throughout the years, but kept in touch through letters, phone calls and emails! He shared stories with us and we hung on his every word. They were precious connections to those who lost fathers, uncles, and even great grandfathers. We had a visit with Cynthia and Bob where the propeller of the plane is promenantly in the living room. He was the only survivor, and thus had given life, shape and details to fill in elusive images of the missing. Bob's loyalty and legacy is honored today.

Message: Condolences to Bob's family and deepest sympathy to Cynthia. Bob was a hard worker on behalf of the town and though we often did not agree on issues, I always felt he was sincere in his arguements and we remained friendly. Again, condolences to all.

Message: I have so many fond memories but especially those of Bob and Cynthia taking daily walks around our block. After my father died they would stop in to see my mother and me every single day for months and longer just to "check in". The warmth of their hearts and generosity of spirits is a rarity and a shining example of how much we need other people and are needed by others, as well. My love to the entire Gross family.

Message: Bob was a dedicated public servant and community leader, always mindful of the needs of others. When we lived in West Hartford he and his beloved Cynthia lived directly across the street from us. Family mattered more than anything to him. His devotion to them and to Congregation Beth Israel was incredible. His life was truly For a Blessing. Susan joins me in extending our heartfelt sympathies to Cynthia and his entire family.

Message: My connection with Bob is that for several years we both swam at Cornerstone Pool in West Hartford and would chat in the locker room. He loved to express his opinion, whether in the locker room, in a letter to a newspaper, or by an email to the town manager. I learned a lot from him about how a citizen can actively participate in local government even without being elected (although he, of course, had indeed been elected). And this was all when he was in his very senior years -- I can only imagine what he was like when he was younger! He was the real deal, and we are all the poorer for his loss. My condolences.

Message: In the early 1970s along with my brother Kevin we found the crash site of a B-24 called "Misery Agent". In the 1990s as the internet developed we made attempts to find detail of those affected by the loss of this aircraft, because we had the story of what had happened. We were fortunate to be put in contact with Bob, who was a Navigator in the 34th Bomb Group and it was his crew that had crashed. Within a week he had booked a flight to England to see us. We took him to the crash site and to the American Cemetery in Cambridge. When he returned home he made it his mission to find the families of all of his 9 crew, that had died that day, 6th June 1944. The reason was simple, because like him they did not know what had happened or where. He achieved his mission, he found them all and his dedication brought closure to so many. Our sympathies to the family Gross, from England, for the loss of a true Gentleman.
