Obituary of JAMES DEWAR GRANT
James Dewar Grant
March 1, 1956 – July 18, 2022
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Jim after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 66.
Jim will be missed dearly by his sons Devon and James, granddaughter Octavia, brother Bill (Barb), brother Don (Tracey), sister Bonnie (Kevin Polischuk), sister in-law Rosalie (John) and many nieces, nephews, cousins, Aunt Jean and Uncle Doug and many friends particularly long-time friend Mike Siedler. Jim was predeceased by his father James and mom Margaret (nee Sutherland), grandparents and numerous aunts and uncles.
Jim grew up in the north end of Winnipeg first attending Luxton and then High School at St. John’s. He enjoyed many sports but at an early age excelled in wrestling, going to the Canadian Championships as Manitoba champ in his weight division. As he moved through high school, he played football and then developed a passion for golf. Golf took him to many places, but a trip with friend Mike to St. Andrews in Scotland golfing on the old course was definitely a highlight.
Jim also enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially with sons Devon and James.
His work career took him from a conservation officer in Hadashville, Burns and McGavins in Winnipeg to his current employer SRG at Richardson International Airport as an electronic technician.
He will be fondly remembered truly as one of the good guys leaving us far to early!
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses on the 3rd floor unit 7 at Seven Oaks
Hospital for their compassionate care during his short stay with them.
The family will be holding a small private Celebration of Life for Jim as per his wishes.
Proudly Serving the Communities of Winnipeg, surrounding area, and the communities of Manitoba.
