Carol: Much can be said but a piece of my life is missing which can not be filled as I will miss our high voltage talks and robust bull sessions. He was a pillar in the class of 55 our class motto is the higher we go the better the view ….Grant is up there looking down laughing and telling stories. Best wishes as always……….Dale G.

May cherish memories help in coping with your loss. May your loved one rest peacefully. One day soon, Jehovah God promise to remove all suffering and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8; Psalm 83:18)

Carol I came across this as I was reading a friends obituary. I know it’s been years since I’ve seen you but I will never forget the wonderful friendship and how much Grant helped me at the Huntington during my employment there. I’m so sorry to hear that he has passed. I’ve thought about you both often over the years. God bless you and your family.

Carol and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Grant’s passing. He brought a smile to my face every time we swam (and sang) together. Grant and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
