“To the family of Grant Kinney. He will be missed and remembered for his friendliest and kind heart. I can still see him on the dance floor having a call. He would dance with every lady and made certain that they had a good time. You will be missed.
“I enjoyed watching Grant smile as he showed us youngster what it meant to truly embrace the moment, as he did each time I saw him at BUSSPOE.
I am sure, he is smiling down from glory now that he is finally home.
We will forever cherish the memories.
Rest in peace
“Grant was a kind, gentle man who will be missed by so many -- friends and family. He loved telling stories about growing up in New Rochelle, New York. I will always remember him at Christmas because of the beautiful cards he sent. My heartfelt sympathy to the family.
