I was so sad to hear of Grant's passing. The last time I saw Grant was at our 15 year high school class reunion. I remember when he met my husband, they immediately began sharing hunting stories. To his children: please know what a kind man your father was. Friendly with a charismatic smile, Grant was an all around good guy and friends with everyone. And had crazy-good handwriting for a guy (we shared notes in civics)! I'm sure it offers little peace now, but I hope someday you will find comfort knowing he was doing something he loved with his best friend.

Grant worked with us, serving his country through contractor support to a large defense agency. The work we do gets published and shared for all 40+ Department of Defense Components, creating a safer computing environment for our nation's defense systems. Grant took great pride in his work and always leaned forward into the challenges it presented. Although I knew him only from the office, it was easy to see Grant was a good person with a huge heart. Condolences to his family as I know he will be missed.
