Paul Grose
Paul GroseTractor Farmall MPaul Grose, 89 of Richwood, went to be with the Lord peacefully Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at Kindred Community surrounded by his loving family.  He was born August 24, 1925 in Washington Court House to Emor and Glenna Mae (Morris) Grose.  He was the oldest of 15 children.

On March 31, 1945 in Findlay he married the former Erdine Brown and was married for 66 years until she preceded him in death in 2011.  He was also preceded in death by two sons-in-law, Al Doss and Steve Ballinger; a sister, Betty Dill, brother Emor Grose Jr., and an infant sister.

Surviving is his loving family, two daughters, Susan Doss and Becky Ballinger, both of Marion; two sons, Lester (Mary Jo) Grose, Marion and Steve Grose, Florida; five grandchildren, Andy (Wanda) Williams; Lori (Donny) Connor; Todd (Annie) Ballinger; Nathan (Jodi) Grose; Katie (Justin) Carlyle; nine great-grandchildren, several step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren.

Coming from as large a family as he did, Paul made his 89 years of life all about family.  He loved his farm life of many years before becoming owner of Richwood Implement in 1966.  After closing the implement he enjoyed working at Mcauliffe's Ace Hardware in Marysville, where he retired.  He was a member of the former Richwood Lions Club and served for many years on the Richwood Civic Center board of directors.  Paul enjoyed a hobby of collecting toy farm equipment.

I extend my sympathies to the entire family, Paul was a good and fair man, I worked a little while helping set up machinery for him at Richwood Implement and I always thought he tried to do what he thought was right. I still have a tractor he sold me in 1979.  God Bless you all, you were very important to him.
