  1. My heartfelt condolences to Grant’s wife Sandi,sisters Lee & Lorrie, sons Will & Gord.Grant was my best friend & the brother I never had,since we were 4 years old. When we were in our 20’s ,Grant told me his life’s motto was- to be a good person and if he could help someone or somehow make their life easier,he would do it if possible &also to do no harm.-I can’t think of a better insight for life. Grant was a quiet man with a gentle soul,a kind heart,a great sense of humour and a smile that lit up his whole face. Grant will never be forgotten by his family & his close friends. Rest in peace ,Grantela
