It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of our brother, uncle and friend Charles Sanford Cross on Monday, July 8, 2019.

He was born in Wellsville on July 17, 1948 a son to the late Walter Cross Sr. and Etta (Echols) Cross. Living his entire life in this area, Charlie was a graduate of Wellsville High School and retired from the Water Treatment Plant for the Village of Wellsville. Charlie, at one time owned and operated Boss Pizza in Wellsville, was a member of the Wellsville American Legion, a president of the Former Jaycees of Wellsville receiving their Outstanding Young Man award in 1975, and was involved on the planning committee for the Jr. Miss Pageant and the Miss Eastern Ohio Pageant. Charlie also worked for the Hub in Steubenville, where he designed and arranged displays and plans for major style shows. He also worked with the former Town Hall for many events.

He is survived by two sisters: Donna (Jon) Yergin of Wellsville, OH, Patty (Harry) Sherman of Syracuse, IN; two sister-in-laws: Sonnie Cross of Wellsville, OH and Debbie Cross of Tennessee; Nieces and nephews: Terry (Tim) Woyan, Catherine Yergin, Erin Huddlestun and her companion Rob Lisk, Eric (Valerie) Cross, Sharma (Greg) Cross-Carter, Sarah Cross, Michael Cross, Luke (Brenda) Sherman and Ed Cross; great nieces and nephews: Amanda (Tim) Woyan- Tuttle, Jacob Woyan, Tracer Yergin, Tanner Yergin, Jonathan Huddlestun, Grace Huddlestun, Kalee (Dakota) Cross-Stedman, Kaden Cross, Emma Carter, Hannah Carter, Will Carter, MacKenzie Sherman, Alex Sherman, Lucian Cross and Nora Gibbs, as well as many cousins, and a countless number of friends.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by three brothers: Terry Lee Cross, Walter Cross Jr. and Frank Cross and a great nephew: Cason Yergin.

Charlie never knew a stranger and was a friend to all who knew him. He loved his family and he loved his friends. He was so loved, and he will be missed beyond words. Rest peacefully.

    One more member of our family is gone. He will be missed by all his friends and family. One of my grandmothers favorites she loved to tease him when he was little. Sorry to all of the rest of the cousins and family.

    My Aunt and Uncle, Thomas and Mary Louise Weir, lived in Hillcrest when I was a kid, so I knew Charlie and his brothers when I was young, as they all ran around with my cousins and would always be at their home during the summer! I also worked with Frank when we were both employed by the State Transportation Dept. I was very saddened when I learned of Franks passing, and now Charlie! Those times of my youth have given me a lot of happy memories. My deepest condolences to the family, friends, and close relatives! I will keep all of you in my prayers during this difficult time!
