Grant Vandervis (son of Cornelius and Jeanette, brother to David, husband to Heather, and one LUCKY father to Taylor and Jesse Taron Vandervis) passed away on April 2nd 2023 from an uppercut from Batman as he tried to steal Grant’s car as he was apparently in need of a new Batmobile. 


He leaves behind a legacy of big smiles, bad Dad jokes, a fridge full of Bud Light and passion for his friends, family and most importantly his dog.


Born June 27th, 1961, he was known for his love of riding his motorcycle, tinkering in his garage, cleaning his car (his true one and only) and dropping everything to come rescue his dramatic children whenever they were in need. He was a social butterfly, could bust a move at any occasion, sing to a perfect pitch (as he thought), but most of all he was a hard worker. His hard work allowed him to retire at the young age of 51. Grant enjoyed every minute of his retirement, living every day with a positive attitude, a smile on his face and love in his heart. 


Grant was never shy about telling people how he felt. He was an open-minded man and loved to joke. But as with everyone he did have some regrets, like not getting a pedicure sooner in life, or never getting over the fear of spiders.


As there is so much to write about Grant because he was such an amazing father, husband, brother, friend, uncle etc., we would like to invite anyone to his Celebration of Life on Saturday April 15 2023 at the Pandora Bar in Transcona starting at 14:00. Come and share stories and positive memories. Only smiles and happy tears will be accepted.
