Grant was extremely fun and creative being universally loved, often described as a gentle giant among friends. He was a consummate musician playing with multiple bands, Elsewhere, Trash Pig, 5 Tongues, and his group Professor Cat ( https://www.facebook.com/ProfessorCat/ ). He followed in his grandmother's footsteps developing a love of art ( https://www.facebook.com/GrantWspaceart/ ) and becoming known in the area for painting live at art shows and a number of murals for local businesses.
He loved attending sporting events, concerts and movies with his son, family, and friends. Cheering on the Tigers, Pistons, and the hopeless Lions. Cheering for an encore from Avett Brothers, Decemberists, and Typhoon. Or shouting in triumph for a Star Wars or Marvel hero.
Grant found a passion for being a Jehovah's Witness, attending pioneer school to better himself for teaching others about his hope for the future. Finding comfort in Revelation 21:3,4
His service will be held at a later date due to the covid virus precautions.
