Danny Ray Cross, 74, of Brookville, entered into Heaven on September 19, 2021. He was born on January 12, 1947 in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Danny proudly served in the United States Marine Corp from 1964 to 1968 during the Vietnam era. He went on to marry the love of his life, Mavis (Prince) Cross, in 1968. Danny and Mavis celebrated 53 years together this year.
Anyone who knew Danny, knew that church was his passion. He dedicated the last 10 years to Galilean Baptist Church. Being the faithful leader that he was, Danny always considered his church family a part of his life.
When Danny was not in church, he could often be found playing guitar and singing with his grandchildren. He was also an avid fisherman who loved to spend time on the lake.
Danny will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Mavis; son, Danny Ray Cross II (Tracie); daughter, Alena Hendrix (Patrick) and adopted daughter, Shirley Steele; grandchildren, Justin Cross, Jeremey (Courtney) Cross, Jordan Cross, and Hannah (T.J.) Ohmer; great grandchildren, Aubrey, Greyson, Easton, Braelynn, Harper, and Berkeley; siblings, Frank, Donny, Roger, Sam, Sheila, Loyd, and Deborah; brother-in-law, Randy; and best friend, Steve Hayes.
Danny was preceded in death by his mother and father, Grace and Loyd Morgan.
