WAYNE – A long-time standing board member of a locally-owned bank in Wayne has recently ended his tenure with State Nebraska Bank & Trust.

According to a release from State Nebraska Bank & Trust, Pat Gross has stepped down from his Director Emeritus position with the SNB’s board last month, officially ending 56 years with the bank.

Gross began his time at State Nebraska Bank & Trust in 1964. He retired as a Senior Vice President and Loan Officer in 2004 where he served on the board of directors for nearly 20 years. During his time with SNB, Gross also served as a Compliance Officer and Head of Human Resources.

Gross has been engaged throughout the Wayne community, previously serving as Secretary of the Providence Hospital Foundation, Treasurer of the Wayne Association of Congregations and Ministers, Chairman of the Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership, Treasurer of the Wayne Library Foundation and Co-Chair of the Wayne Housing Authority Board.

A graduate from Wayne State College, Gross also served four years in the United States Marine Corps. He and his wife have five children and five grandchildren.

In his spare time, Gross enjoys visiting with the sick and elderly, participating in various church activities, following athletic events, reading and watching old movies.

To celebrate his many years of service and contributions to the bank and the community, State Nebraska Bank & Trust is planting a tree at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mr. Gross’s name.
