November 16, 1944 - October 19, 2020
Welborn Teel Gross, known as “Man” to most, passed from this life on Monday, October 19, 2020 at his home in Connerville, Oklahoma surrounded by his loving wife and family. Man was born on November 16, 1944 in Talihina, Oklahoma to JD and Birdie May (Reed) Gross. He worked at Koch Hydrocarbon Co. for over 27 years and also was a volunteer firefighter for the Connerville Fire Department, which he helped start. Man was always the first one to the Connerville Community Center every day to help make sure the coffee was going or just to be a helping hand or a listening ear to people. When his son, Mike, was little they enjoyed going down to Lake Texoma; pulling the skiers behind the boat, fishing or camping. He married the love of his life, his high school sweet heart and his neighbor growing up, Linda Kaye Holt, on December 12, 1964 and they have created many memories and blessings over the last 56 years together. Man was a wonderful husband, caring father and a gentle, fun loving peepaw who always made sure the needs of his family were met before his own. He left an amazing legacy behind him and has impacted so many lives in his 75 years on this earth, that many of us will forever treasure. Man is preceded in death by his parents, JD and Birdie May Gross; brothers, Murray and Steve Gross; brother in law, Richard Hereford. Those he leaves to cherish his memories are his loving wife, Linda Gross of the home; son, Mike Gross and wife Sammi of Mill Creek; grandchildren, Danielle Allen of Connerville, Micah Woodall of Ada, Sarah Gross of Ada; great-grandchildren, Emma Fink, Olivia Gross, Adelyn Allen, Owen Allen, Charlotte Woodall; sister, Pat Hereford of Connerville; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends who will forever miss him. A graveside service to honor and celebrate the life of Welborn "Man" Gross will be held at 11:00 AM Friday, October 23, 2020 at Seeley-Blue Cemetery. Family hour will be held on Thursday from 4:00 - 6:00 PM at DeArman-Clark Funeral Home.
