The full obituary is available in the printed copy of the
TimesIndicator newspaper or
online in the e-edition:



Ralph Cross, eldest son of Bill and Bertha Cross, was born in Russelville, Arkansas on September 16, 1921. He passed away peacefully in his eldest daughter’s home in Indianapolis on August 18, 2022.

The family gathered in Indianapolis on September 4th to partake of a bottle of “Old Grand Dad” that Ralph had been saving for more than 40 years. After noting that a significant “angel’s share” had mysteriously disappeared from the bottle, a toast was made, and the whiskey was drunk. Still hot on the tongue, but with sweet caramel overtones, the liquor was declared to have held up well. Not unlike Ralph himself.

Per Ralph’s wishes, a portion of his ashes will be interred with his late wife Vicki in Fremont, Michigan. The remainder will be scattered at his favorite fishing spot, Sydenham Lake in Ontario, Canada. See you at the lake, Grandpa!
