Leland L. Cross, MD March 6, 1927-May 10, 2013 Leland L. Cross, MD passed away on May 10, 2013, at age 86. He was born March 6, 1927, in Mason County, Illinois, the second of three children born to Russell and Garnet Cross. The family farmed, so Lee enjoyed the country life as a child. There is a story that Lee ate twenty ears of corn in one sitting as a young person. He also was very adept at sorting watermelon seeds from fruit in his mouth, a farm boy trick. Lee attended several different elementary and secondary schools in Illinois, graduating from high school in 1944 in San Jose. He served in the Navy from 1945-1946. He then attended the University of Illinois, and in 1952 received his MD from Northwest- ern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He married his high school sweet- heart, Audrey Hullinger, in 1949. After Lee finished school at Northwestern and an internship in Des Moines, Iowa, he and Audrey moved to Mt. Pulaski in 1953. There, Lee became a beloved small town doctor, delivering many babies and making many house calls. All six of their children were born in the midwest. In Mt. Pulaski, Lee was a member and President of the local school board. In 1963 the family moved to the Los Angeles area, where Lee pursued a specialty in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at UCLA for four years. They made many friends and enjoyed the warm weather and beaches while in California. Continued Next Page o-
