Gary Lee Grant, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend passed away at the young age of 75 on January 8, 2022, in Gilbert, Arizona. Gary was born December 28, 1946 in Sandy, Utah to Reed Grant and Marguerite Faust. He moved to Mesa, Arizona with his family in 1981. Gary lived a very happy life filled with family, friends, and lots of ice cream. From a young age Gary had much success as an athlete both on the basketball court and the baseball field. That love of sports was passed on to his children and grandchildren. His smile was contagious and was often accompanied by a mysterious tune. And all were fondly familiar with his famous tight lip and clearing of the throat.
Gary was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he served diligently and without question. His love for hi s Savior and his Heavenly Father was evident in the way he lived. His faith and love for the gospel was deeply rooted and unshakable. Through all he endured in his life, his unwavering faith was always constant and unchanging. Gary was a kind, honorable man that loved to serve and help others. He had a deep love for his grandchildren and could often be seen taking them on walks in a wagon, creating a meal fit for a picky eater, and playing with them in his back yard. He loved his wife and children deeply and cherished his time with his family. His cheerful demeanor will be greatly missed. His legacy will be carried on by his beautiful wife Carolyn, 7 children, Jonathan (Tami), Christopher (Sharri), Jason (Jaime), Heather (Scott), Sharlene (Tanner), Tiffany (Andrew), Ryan, 25 curious grandchildren, and one great grandchild on the way. He is also survived by two brothers, David C Grant (Jeanne) and Roger J Grant (Lori), and two sisters, Julie Grant and Becky Shamo (Mike). Gary will truly be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His greatest wish was for everyone to feel the Savior’s love as they traveled the rocky road of mortality.
