Grant was caring  and determined, he was always striving for goals  that were amazing to consider, but he always set them aside to help those he cared for. Grant was a 2019 graduate of Peters Township High School. He was currently  studying business at The University of Pittsburgh and formerly a student of The University of Oregon. He loved football, wrestling and hanging out with his friends.   He was an amazing cook, and loved to fish. You could find Grant working on cars or finding a new project to build that he would later show off to everyone. Grant had a smile that lit up the room and he made you feel like everything in the world was innocent and blissful.   He always supported all of his family and friends. Grant will be remembered for his passions, wit, charm, love and famous red hair. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. The world really lost a great one.
