Grant was born in Holland, 1934 and lived in Cardinal, Altamont and Holland as a child. Grant moved to Glenora in 1953, to farm and chose to raise his family there; retiring to Carman in 1998. He will be remembered for his quick wit and ready smile. He loved to tinker with his latest wood working project and was eager to head out dancing on a Friday or Saturday evening.
