Dr. Grange was my advisor and mentor during the last two years of my BA in Philosophy (1991). Along with Frank Carner, he was the kindest and most generous teacher I ever met. I often wondered why he gave me such glowing recommendations and made it his mission that I receive fellowships from Harvard and BU upon my graduation. I finally understood it when it was my turn to influence young people's lives. I discovered a strange desire to open doors for them. That's what he had been doing and my desire stemmed from some subconscious need to return the favour - to the universe, if not to him. I once visited Maine in 2006 especially to thank him for that, but he was away on a sabbatical. Today I made another attempt to contact him, but instead found this obituary. Oh well, he lives on in all of us who will continue to open doors for others.

I took prof Grange's Human Alienation class in the mid 90's. He was the most amazing man and prof. I thank you for pushing me and teaching me how to think again. Because of you I have a love affair with Plato and Spinoza. Rest In Peace my friend. ❤

As a former student at UMPG (now Southern Maine University),I've thought of Dr. Grange frewquently over the years. Intro to philosopy in 1971 and other courses with him led me to "care" as only he could help us understand. He "cared" about all of us. I was again thinking of him this morning as the struggle with "care" continues in my now long career as a psychologist. With the power of the internet, I decided to see if he published his book he was working on in 1975: Journey unto Care. I find his obituary. I cared about Joe all my career and my clients/patients/others have benefitted. Love you Joe. Sorry for your loss, family. You must have loved him deeply as he did you. Herb Crosby Ph.D. Concord NH

Joe is the best teacher I ever had. I majored in philosophy because his intro class was so incredible. i remember there were waiting lists to get into his classes; people used to record his lectures because he was that good and wise.
Joe was also my very dear friend and mentor. he is missed.

My dear Uncle who kindly shared his name with me. A great role model in humility and philosophy. Miss you Uncle.

Joe was such a kind, generous, caring uncle. I loved talking philosophy, baseball, and the history of the Granges with him. My memories of him are a jumbled mishmash through my decades-- rubbing forearms like monkeys in my kitchen when I was 7, fishing and playing baseball in Maine at 10, kindly taking me in during a post-college graduation wandering. I treasure them all.
I'll miss you Uncle Joe.

My brother Joe: a kind, generous and wise man. We were always there for each other though the ups and downs of life. He will be missed by so many, but he lives on in our memories and affection for him. Excelsior brother!

Claudine,
I am sorry to hear from Denise Forgione about your husband. It is such a loss for you and for the whole community. I will keep you in my prayers for healing. You were a great preceptor for me & I thank you. Denise Fuhrmann

I wish I had the opportunity to know my cousin Joe the way everyone in Maine did. His lovely wife Claudine and daughters. We grew up together and then we were separated by miles during these our grown up years. I'm so impressed with the notes from his friends. He was a very good and loving man. He will be missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace Joe.

I did not know Joseph Grange, but I was a friend of his wife. He had to be a special person to light the love that glowed in her eyes when she spoke of him. Here's to all the wonderful people that seem to be gone before their time.
