Sanford A. Gross

Sanford “Sandy” A. Gross, 85, Larchmont, NY, died December 14, 2009 in Delmar, NY. Born in the Bronx, NY, on November 17, 1924, he was the son of the late Alexander and Frances (Wassar) Gross.

He is survived by his daughters, Wendy Vega and Mary Ibbetson, his  son-in-law, Joseph Ibbetson, his granddaughters, Nicole and Cassandra Ibbetson, his nephew, Allen Goldberg and his many grand pets, Mia, Belle, Jasmine, Minnie, Petie and Violet. He was also predeceased by his sister, Muriel.

Sandy was a Navy veteran of WWII and the Korean War. After discharge from the Navy, he graduated from Dartmouth College where he made so many dear friends. Sandy worked for many years in the advertising industry in NYC. He was always writing poems and jingles. Any day at the beach, no matter what season, was a good day in Sandy’s book! His second home was the “grassy knoll” at Larchmont Manor Beach. He took great pride in being the first one in the water each season, including this past summer, and could be found bundled up in a spot out of the wind at Rye Beach in the middle of winter.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Sandy’s name to your favorite charity. Calling hours: Friday, December 18 from 2-4 PM and 7-8 PM. Funeral Service will follow at 8PM. JOHN J. FOX FUNERAL HOME,  2080 Boston Post Road Larchmont, NY, 10538 914-834-0144

    A chance view of the Larchmont Gazette led me to the obituaries. A smile came to my face as I remembered Sandy from the Manor Beach and from the days when I met Sandy through my neighbor, Audrey Fergusson, who we fondly called “Fergie”. The beach was one of Fergies’s primary interests, and soon after coming to Larchmont, it became one of Sandy’s interests as well. When the Manor Beach became “off limits” during the early fall and late spring, the die-hard swimmers migrated to Rye Beach. Peace. Tranquility. The open spaces. The rhythm of the salt water lapping at the shore. A pride in keeping fit by taking a long and restful swim.

    At times, I got to meet Mary when she joined Sandy at the beach. My condolences to Mary, Wendy, and to all of those who knew and loved Sandy.
