DEATHS

WILLIAM K. GROSH, MD
William (Bill) Kilgore Grosh, M.D., 93,
a resident of Moravian Manor in Lititz
and formerly of Ephrata, PA, passed away
December 13, 2020 from complications
due to Alzheimer's disease.

Bill married Joyce Rhen on July 5, 1952
and the couple moved to Philadelphia so Bill
could finish medical school at Hahnemann
Medical College (now Drexel University
College of Medicine).

Born in Lancaster to Angie Hawthorne
Kilgore and Samuel Siegfried Grosh, Bill was
married to Joyce Rhen Grosh for almost 61
years until her passing on May 31, 2013.

In September 1955, Bill began his medical
practice with Drs. Ridgeway and Kowaleski
in Akron, PA. In 1971, he set up a successful
solo practice and became one of the first
doctors in PA to become Board Certified
in Family Practice.

Bill graduated in 1945 from McCaskey
High School and enlisted in the Navy, leaving
for boot camp the week after graduation.
During his 18 months of service, Bill received
four grade promotions and spent time in
California, Illinois, Florida and Maryland.
During this time, Bill matured considerably,
learned to value freedom and was eager to
begin college.
After honorable discharge, Bill attended
Franklin & Marshall College, graduating
in 1950; he played in the band and was
a member of Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity.

Bill always regarded his career as his
honor and privilege to care for sometimes
three generations within families. He retired
in 1990 to spend time with Joyce and out
of increasing frustration with insurance
company and governmental intrusion on
the practice of medicine.

of his life, he retained his ability to smile,
love music and in his own way demonstrate
care for others in this new setting.
Bill will be missed dearly by his two sons:
Thomas R. Grosh (Jill Ann) of Lititz and
James K. Grosh (Ellen) of Ann Arbor, MI as
well as four grandchildren: Austin (Megan)
of Elizabethtown, Jared of Lititz and Katie
and Laura of Ann Arbor, MI. The family
would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the nurses and staff at Moravian
Manor and Hospice at Masonic Village in
Elizabethtown who went above and beyond
in their care of Bill.

During the last seven years, Bill has lived
in the memory care unit of Moravian Manor.
While dementia robbed him of the ability
to access specific memories toward the end
