  1. Gardens and a friendly contact for Precious Jewels. That’s how I knew him. Steady and faithful.

  2. I worked with Grant for many years at the John Howard Society. Grant was always a kind and gentle person who always had a warm greeting, a big smile and encouragement for everyone he met. He was able to mentor many of the staff (including myself) during his time at JHS and helped them to become more caring and compassionate people. You always hope that you will make the world a better place and Grant certainly did that in so many ways with so many people.

  3. I am very sorry to hear this news. I have memories of Grant from St. Philips Church. A very kind man.

  4. Your Dad was a kind and compassionate man, very wise and knowledgeable and a much loved friend. He helped many people and made the world a better place. We enjoyed his stories of family trips to Ontario and contributions to our Bible Studies. Eric and I are saddened by this news and send our deepest condolences and prayers to your family.

  5. May Grant’s heavenly father comfort all you who morn.
