We are saddened by the sudden passing of Steven Grant in early June at the young age of 63 years old in New Westminster BC. Survived by his beloved daughter Jade & her Mother Suzie, his siblings Karen, Danny, Donny and Scott and his grand dog Whiskey, stepmother Terry and step siblings Lorraine, Andy, Noella, Mary, and Adele. Preceded in death by his mother Ada and father Kenneth. Steve was born in London, Ontario and raised in Cornwall, Ontario and with the urge of moving West, Steve moved to Edmonton, Alberta and finally settling on the West Coast Lower Mainland. This is where he met and married Suzie and started their family. Steve was a family man and a great dad with really bad “Dad” jokes, they were so bad you had to laugh; along with his socks and sandals get up, fanny pack and “manpurse”, only you could get away with Steve. You would rarely see Steve without a coffee in his hand or a book in his face and always had several different library cards and knew where the best coffee was. He loved the outdoors and was an animal lover of especially dogs. There was never a superhero movie he couldn’t pass up or some sci-fi movie or show he had to watch. He was an avid music lover of many different styles. Steve volunteered his time with compassion & strength at the New Leaf Clubhouse to help people battle anxiety and depression; and also belong to another volunteer group the “RATS” whom many of the member became lifelong friends. He was so generous with his time that he would have weekly visits to one of his deceased good friends’ elderly mother. A private memorial for family & friends will be held on August 6, 2022.
“My wife asked me to go get 6 cans of Sprite from the grocery store. I realized when I got home that I had picked 7 up.”
I worked with Steve at the Hilton in Burnaby and he was a hard worker and had a great sense of humour. You always made me laugh. I hope you have found peace my friend.
Steve was a kind and trustworthy person. He created for us memories that will last a lifetime. The music shared, the concerts attended, the dinners had together, all will be treasured in our hearts forever.
Steve was such a generous and genuinely nice guy. Lainey loved him to the ends of the earth. Tuesday walks with Steve were the best. He had this quiet, calm presence. I didn’t know him very long but I appreciated those quiet moments that he would open up and talk. He wasn’t one to rush into a conversation. I will miss him dearly and think of him often.
