William R. Grant, formerly of Milton of Holbrook, a beloved family man and a dedicated professional, passed away on November 27, 2023, at the South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. William was a friendly and loving figure who had a profound impact on everyone who had the privilege to know him.
William was the cherished husband of Constance D. Grant (Daley) and the proud father of George Grant of Holbrook, Heather Graham of TN, Gretchen Carney of W. Roxbury, and Brenda Favazzo of Lexington. He was also a stepfather to Meredith Koch of Wareham, Carolyn Dias of Raynham, and Thomas Tully of NC. William was predeceased by his sister, Carolee Long. His legacy carries on through his grandchildren, Taylor, Siobhan, Ashling, and Declan, and his great-grandson, Lincoln Connor.
Born in Boston, William was raised in Milton and graduated from Milton High School. He furthered his studies and graduated from William and Mary University in Virginia, exemplifying his dedication to education and personal development. He brought this same commitment to his professional life, where he worked as a salesman for Firestone and Sullivan Tire for many years before retiring. His colleagues remember him as a dedicated professional who was always eager to lend a helping hand.
William was a man of many interests. He was an avid sports fan, with a particular love for college football. However, his most cherished moments were those spent with his family and grandchildren. He was known for his love of good food and dining out. He was regarded by many as an all-around good guy, a testament to his friendly and loving nature.
William's life was characterized by his enduring love for his family and his passion for life. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him, and his life serves as a beautiful testament to a life well-lived. As we remember William, we celebrate a man who truly made a difference in the lives of those around him. He will be deeply missed.
The family will receive relatives and friends at the Alfred D. Thomas Funeral Home 326 Granite Ave Milton Thursday from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. The visitation will be concluded by a time to remember Bill at 12:00 noon. Burial private.
