Edward (Ted) James Grant, beloved husband of Mary, of Calgary passed away at home on Wednesday, November 22, 2006 after a six-year struggle with prostate cancer at the age of 57 years.
Ted was born August 3, 1949 in Port Hope, ON, and grew up in Toronto. He graduated as a civil engineer from Waterloo University, moved west and worked as an engineer with the City of Calgary for the past thirty years. Ted was a man of integrity and truly loved his job. Being an engineer was the fulfillment of a childhood dream. He will be remembered for his love of life and his ability to make people laugh. Ted was always willing to help others. He was passionate about skiing, sailing and his family was very important to him. Ted loved card games, especially bridge. Pot luck suppers attending lacrosse games, and hosting Murder Mysteries were happy events spent with family and friends.
Besides his loving wife of twenty-six years, Ted is survived by his daughter Lindsey; his son David; father George and step-mother Lea; brothers Doug (Carol Ann), Bill (Wendy); sister Joanne; sisters-in-law Dayle Bowman (Jim Halford) and Adele Martin; nieces and nephews Patti, Ali, Blair, Adrienne, Nicole, Emily, and David; as well as several cousins, aunts and uncles.
