Obituary for Estel Ray Gross Jr.

Estel Ray Gross Jr. was born on July 7, 1976 in Ft. Knox, Kentucky to Estel Sr. and Margie Gross. He passed away on October 9, 2019 in Commerce Twp., Michigan at the age of 43.

Ray worked for Meijer for many years, over 15 of which were at the Wixom store. He started out in photos and through hardworking and dedication worked his way up to a supervisor and Union Steward.

In his down time, Ray preferred spending time at home. He was an avid fan of WWE and although his sister lives in Kansas, they frequently played PlayStation together online. His love of gaming didn't stop there. He was also an avid fan of Pokemon and enjoyed playing Euchre with his cousins.

A kindhearted and loving soul, Ray helped care for his grandma following the death of his grandfather in 2000. He cared for her for over 17 years, until her passing in 2017.

Ray was the cherished son of Estel Sr. and Margie. Beloved brother of Leann Cole. Proud uncle of Ashton, Mari, Matt and Kaleb. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.

A memorial service celebrating Ray's life will be held at a later date.
