    I was shocked to hear of Grant‘s passing! I am so sorry for your loss🙏. Grant and My Late husband Mike Lindquist seem to have always been in each others lives. Grant was Mike’s best man in our wedding in1999. Ive heard many stories of their adventures and misadventures when living in Texas, back in the day , to more recent times in the midwest. Many friends have called to inquire as to when and where they will be able to express their respects and condolences after the pandemic restrictions are lifted. Grant will be truely missed by many❣️��

    John and Carol hofstadter, so sorry to hear of Grants passing. I have talked with several of the old members of the wbm crew this past week, everyone is shocked and heartbroken at this time. Grant was a great co-worker diligent in his job and a good friend. He will be missed by all of us! God bless

    So sorry to hear about Grant!  He was the best at WBM - sold us two boats over the years.  Such a loss for all the crew and the entire area at WBM when they closed.  May God comfort you all now as your remember a great guy!
