I just heard about Don's passing... I am filled with such sadness for his entire family and especially Erin. He was such a warm and amazing man. He will be sorely missed.

My sweet Dad…I have no words to express the pain and emptiness your loss has caused. You have always been such an important part of my life. I just can't imagine not seeing or talking to you again. I am so thankful that I had you as my father. You taught me so many valuable and important lessons. You instilled many great values and beliefs when you raised me and continued the expectation for me to follow those as an adult. I am a teacher because you put that desire in my heart, watching and listening to you talk about your love of teaching. I am thankful for the times we spent going on our father/daughter dinner dates, our trip to Boston/Cape Cod as well as Seattle, Washington, our weekly phone calls, the times I watched you sing with your chorus, and so many more. I am so proud to be your daughter. I have had so many people tell me what a difference you made in their life, as their professor, as their therapist, or as a friend. You may be gone physically but you will not be forgotten. I love you now and forever…until we meet again.
Your loving daughter ~ Carey

I had the privilege of being in Don's class (UTA-MSSW 1979) before coming back post phd as a colleague.
Don was deserving of his NASW Pioneer status....he opened the way for social workers into the new (at that time) cognitive science. He was an expert guest on the Phil Donahue Show (watch the tape sometimes, he had a beard then & bell bottom pants).
Don saw no limits to what one could accomplish....you just had to put yourself out there. He was good at it and modeled that for me and I'm sure for many others. He introduced us to his friends Mike Mahoney, David Olsen, etc. etc.
This, coupled with his joy of living and having fun was pretty irresistible.
I see Don now organizing a '50s rock and roll cruise through the heavens for our old buddies who preceded him there.
Rock on, Don!

Donny was not only smart but lots of fun. He and both had 1984 Pontiacs in high school and had fun talking about them. Donny's was the top of the line and he could be seen zipping around town with the windows down and music loud. Not only was he really a cute guy but so was his Mother. So sad that Donny is gone but thrilled to know he had a wife, son and lots of grandchildren. Love his smile! Nancy Nolf from Bothell Washington

Don Granvold was a remarkable teacher, therapist, and human being. My life has been truly blessed by knowing him. He was a beacon of light for how to live a well-lived life and was a model for how to be a balanced and whole human being with his big heart and great sense of humor.
