Graduating from Ryerson Technology in Toronto in 1961, Grant worked two years at Atomic Energy of Canada in Deep River, Ontario as a Chemical Technologist and then transferred to the Research site at Pinawa in 1963. Grant and Bonnie were pioneers in the newly built town of Pinawa. They lived and raised their family in this beautiful town for 54 years. In earlier days, he was an excellent, competitive curler. He enjoyed ancestry research, dancing, gardening, golfing, making wine and winter vacations in Palm Desert.
His family and friends were very important to him. He will be missed and remembered for many fun times and his unique sense of humour.
