Daniel James Gross, son of Jacob A Gross and Katherina Leier of Orrin, ND, departed this earthly plane on January 16th, 5PM, 2020, from Clackamas View Senior Living, Portland, OR. His niece, Debra Panasuk oversaw Daniel’s care and final passing.
Daniel had an accomplished career with Armour and Co, in MN, and with various construction and landscape firms in Portland. He was known for his marathon running, love of sports, and the outdoors. Daniel ran in the Portland ORRC (Oregon Road Runners Club) and Honolulu marathons winning both gold and silver medals - his determination and gentle smile did not go unnoticed.
Daniel enjoyed country music and storytelling, playing guitar and harmonica to old country standards such as The Carter Family, Hank Williams and Merle Haggard.
