During his years at the paper, Gross served as chief night editor, news editor and associate managing editor.

Gross was appointed editorin- chief at the beginning of 1990 after 20 members of the staff left the paper in a dispute with the new owners, the Canada-based Hollinger Inc. newspaper chain, over editorial policy. He served as editor during the transition period for two years, retiring in 1992. He was succeeded by David Bar-Illan.

A longtime resident of Moshav Beit Zayit, west of the capital, Gross continued to be an active reader of the Post and observer of current events. His wife, Ruth, died in 1996.

Gross is survived by three sons, a daughter and nine grandchildren. He donated his body to science. There will be a memorial service at 4 p.m. on Monday in Beit Zayit.
