Grady Floyd Golson Obituary
Grady Floyd Golson, 91, of Blackfoot, passed away on Friday, February 17, 2017, in Blackfoot, Idaho. He was born to Arthur Bond Golson and Osie Allen Biggs on March 15, 1925, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was raised and received his education in Salt Lake and it was there that he met and married Hannah Beth Rees.
They were married on November, 11, 1944. Following their marriage they opened a family owned dry cleaning business, Bond Cleaners in Salt Lake City. They sold the business and then Grady went to work for Utah Power and Light.
Deciding that change was needed, they moved from Salt Lake to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho where Grady retired from Utah Power. This was the beginning of a new phase of life for them. They began moving into old homes and remodeling them. They would start from the ground and work their way up until the entire home had been remodeled. In total, they remodeled 11 homes, including houses in Lava, Thatcher, Downey, Whitney, Franklin, and Blackfoot. Visitors from all over would come to admire their handiwork.
During his life, Grady enjoyed several hobbies aside from fixing up and remodeling houses. When he had time, he loved to go hunting and fishing with friends and family. Grady was also incredibly skilled at woodworking and built masterfully crafted items from dressers and tables to children's toys. Grady was also an avid bowler and enjoyed bowling both for leisure and competition.
Grady is survived by his children, Christine Hobbs, of Goshen, Idaho; Ric (Elsa Heeps) Golson, of Vancouver Island, Canada; Grady Lee (Jill) Golson, of Cleveland, Idaho, as well as his brother, Joseph Golson, of Salt Lake City, Utah; and seven grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Hannah Beth Rees Golson, a great-granddaughter, Jasper, and his siblings, Betty, Dick, Wesley, and David.
Graveside services and Interment will be held at Grove City Cemetery February 21, 2017 at 11 a.m.
