Grant met his wife Mary Valdez George in Tucson, Arizona. They came to Roswell to visit on their vacation, and both of them have been here since 1999. Grant was a Jack Of All Trades and a MASTER at EVERYTHING because his wife Mary always told him he could fix and do anything. He loved taking things apart and seeing with his own eyes how it all worked. Grant worked on computers, phones, TVs, vehicles and you name it, Grant would fix it.

He had a love for life that he lived to the fullest and never slowed down until God said it was time for him to leave us and “come home” to his eternal HOME. Grant was always ready for his next adventure and loved having his grandchildren over. He would always tackle them and call it “THE CLAW!!”, they would laugh so hard they would cry. Plus, when Grant would say hi to them, he would put his fingers up to his nose and wave his fingers.

He loved spending time outdoors with his brother or anyone that would come over, listening to music and drinking his beer. Grant enjoyed talking with his family on the phone. Some of his favorite activities were fishing and planning road trips to go to Hooters. He always had Super Bowl parties. Grant looked forward to that every year to be with family and friends. He was a New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and sometimes Sea Hawks fan.

Family and friends, please try and find comfort with the memories that you made with him.

May God Bless you all.
