Dec. 13, 2017 n— CROSS—Michael Warren Cross, 63, formerly of Florence, passed away peacefully Dec. 7, 2017, after fighting a long, hard battle and is now resting in peace with no more pain.
Mike was born Dec. 22, 1953, in Lebanon, Ore., to Ralph and Mary Cross, and attended school in the Siuslaw School District.
Mike enjoyed fishing, hot rods and car shows. His greatest attribute was his love for God and his strong faith. Just days before his passing, he was sharing his favorite scripture Mathew 5:17-19. Mike was an amazing person who will be greatly missed as he rests in peace, awaiting The Lord’s return.
He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Debbie; daughters Sheila, Shelly and (Teanna); son Michael; grandchildren: Grabrielle, Brittany, Kadan, Jade, Avery and Odette; his mother, Mary; his brother Marvin; and nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved very much.
Mike and Debbie were so grateful for all the support, love and prayers from family and friends during this very difficult time.
Services will be Sunday, Dec. 17, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Sweet Home Seventh Day Adventist Church, 300 Holly Rd., in Sweet Home, Ore.
The family requests no flowers or plants.
