William E. Grant “Bill” 84 went home to be with the Lord on the afternoon of Thursday 30th of September in the presence of his family.
Bill was the son of Mack W. and Berta Grant. He leaves behind his wife of 62 years Jane Gladden Grant, son Russell Grant, daughters Teresa Holder (Marty), Marie Hollifield (Jeff) and God-daughter Georgina Ditmore Carringer; Grandchildren Whitney Riddle (Donnie), Brittney Holder (TJ), Brian Warren (Kirstin), Brandy Hollifield and Andrea Howell; Great grandchildren Zak Riddle, Kendrix Orr, Ashton Hollifield, Emili and Madison Warren, Kylie Davis, and Brooklyn Moore. Bill was preceded in death by sister Josephine Sawyer, MaryJane James, and daughter in law Wanda Grant.
Bill was a humble God-loving family man that lived his life as a servant to God. He was a deacon at Sweetgum Baptist Church, young married class Sunday school teacher, singer in the choir and a counselor to many--He loved everyone and never had an unkind word. He and Jane raised their children with strong Christian values and much love. He treasured his time spent on the lake with his fishing buddies; time with his family, friends and enjoying his front porch.
