Loving husband of 60 years follows his wife Marilyn upon his passing April 30th following a lengthy illness. He passed surrounded by the love of his family in his son’s home. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great Grandfather. After his family, his greatest pride was graduating as a mechanical engineer from Ohio State University, his service overseas in the Airforce, his career with Dupont and Fentech and his service to St Matthews by the Sea. He developed 17 patented technologies during his career with DuPont and his subsequent consulting firm Fentech Inc. His last patents were for equipment that allowed the continuation of the production of dialysis filters until new solvents could be developed. He felt it was his duty to help people and protect the environment.
His favorite pastimes were fixing bikes and cars for kids in the neighborhood, Camping with his family, trains and planes, bar-b-ques and friends. He was a traveler, but we never figured out whether he traveled to make Marilyn happy or if he truly liked traveling. He spent time living abroad with Marilyn and his children in Germany, Turkey, and Switzerland. His personality was bigger than life and he was quick with a joke, he liked when people laughed and smiled.
Surviving him are his brother John A Grant and his wife Millie, sister-in-law Patricia Arnold and family, daughter Barbara Grant Taylor and her husband Jon, son Jim Grant and his wife Terri, his grandchildren Danielle Blanchard, Jason Grant, Christopher Grant, Gabrielle Williams and her husband Shane and his pride and joy great grandchildren Hank, Wren and Waylon Williams. He will be missed.
Services will be held on May 22, 2021 at 12PM, at St. Matthews by the Sea in Fenwick Island, DE. Interment to be in Granville, OH with his wife Marilyn.
