Doug Grant, 79, died peacefully with his wife Lois by his side at Concord's VNA Hospice House Tuesday, March 20, 2018, after a five month struggle against brain cancer. He was born in Scranton, Pa., to George William and Rita Dunn Grant and lived there until 1950 when he moved to Louisville, Ky. After Doug graduated from Louisvile's Eastern High School, he attended the University of Michigan, graduating with a BS in Business Administration.

In 1960 he began his 38 year career with the General Electric Co. in the fields of accounting and computer technology at GE Wiring Devices in Bloomington, Ill., and Lighting Devices in Warwick, R.I.

After retirement Doug moved to Plymouth, and devoted his time to serving the community. He was a trustee of Pease Public Library and served on the boards on a variety of social service agencies, including Plymouth Area Community Closet and Keep the Heat On. He was active in his local church which was a significant part of his life. As a U. of M. alumnus, Doug was a "True Blue" sports fan and was an avid cheerer of his team. Another lifetime passion of his was playing bridge and he achieved the goal of Life Master. He also enjoyed reading, hiking, attending theater and classical music performances, visiting family, and traveling throughout the world. He was known for his quick wit and sense of humor.

Doug will be missed by his family which includes his wife of 58 years, Lois; his daughter, Kathleen and husband, Steve Walther; two sons, Jeffrey and his wife, Susan Weldon and Gregory and wife, Aew; four grandchildren, Eric and Elizabeth Walther-Grant, James and wife Claire, and Alison and husband Hugo Perez; three great-grandchildren, Caleb and Madeline Grant and Ollin Perez Grant; a brother James, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
