Alvin R. Grossman earned his Army pilot wings just two weeks before his death on June 14, 1943. Grossman, a 2nd lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Corps, died in the line of duty while conducting training exercises aboard a navigation training plane.   

This Clark Fallen Hero is buried at the Oheb Shalom Cemetery in Hillside, New Jersey.  

Grossman is one of two Clark Fallen Heroes for whom a street in the township has yet to be named.  By ordinance, the Township of Clark names its new streets after the Fallen Heroes.
