DONALD “DON” GRANT

DONALD “DON” GRANT
Donald “Don” Grant, died on December 8, 2022, in his 89th year, at Sensenbrenner Hospital, Kapuskasing, Ontario. Dad was born and raised in Bowmanville, Ontario. He is survived by his much-loved wife of nearly 70 years, Jean (nee Watling); his children Michael, Deborah and Kathrine (Dan). Grandpa will be greatly missed by grandchildren Jason (Shauna), Sean (Chantal), Christine, Joseph, Bradley and Brian; as well as eight great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. Don was predeceased by his parents, Ross and Evelyn (Dickinson) Grant; and older siblings Shirley (Bill), Murray (Ruth), Audrey (Bob), Rex (Ruth) and Betty (Bert). Dad worked his entire career as an electrician at the Spruce Falls paper mill. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Every year, Don looked forward to the deer hunt on Manitoulin Island. Dad was a true jack-of-all-trades. His woodworking skills were impressive, and his memory will live on in the beautiful clocks, blanket boxes and other items that he crafted over the years. Dad was a master gardener and loved sharing the garden’s bounty with his neighbours. He passed on that love of growing to his children and his grandchildren. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Plamondon and all the nurses and other staff who cared for Dad during the past few months. Cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service, as per Don’s wishes. Friends are welcome to visit Mom at home, to offer their condolences. A Celebration of Life is planned for late spring 2023 on Manitoulin Island. Memorial donations should be directed to the Sensenbrenner Hospital Foundation in Kapuskasing or to the charity of your choice, www.guenettefuneral.com.
