Obituary for Richard Cross

June 9, 1951 - September 8, 2018

Richard Cross, 67, of New Hope, passed away Saturday.

Richard was a member of Owens Cross Roads Baptist Church. He was a devout Christian who loved the lord and studied in God 's word daily. Richard truly loved and enjoyed the outdoors; fishing, hunting, gardening and taking quiet walks in the woods. His sweet sense of humor was delightful, laughable and endearing. He sincerely loved all his family and friends from the heart; always thinking the best of everyone. His generosity and kindness will forever be remembered as a timeless treasure. Richard will forever live and be remembered in these hearts; as well as so many other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by father, Clayton Cross, mother, Dorothy B. Cross, mother in law, Corinne Burrow, father in law, Hegia Burrow, and brother in law, John Harrison Burrow.

Cross, sister, Terry (Ricky) Stapler, sister in law, Donna Burrow, brother in law, Joe (Alma) Burrow, sister in law, Linda Reeder, sister in law, Gayle (Benny) Martin, several nieces and nephews, and two very special friends and hunting buddies Eddie Moody and Lyle Davis.
