With the same quiet determination and dignity that defined him, Dr. Harold Grammer said goodbye on Monday, December 9, 2013. He now joins his beloved wife of 52 years, Loretta, to continue their travels together. A great- father and role model to Karen and Neal Kadish, Jody and the late Stuart Roebuck, Mark and Cheryl Grammer, and Neil and Cheryl Grammer. A loving and much loved "Zaid" to David, Carli, Joel and Seth Kadish, Jaimie and Jeffrey Roebuck, Jonathan, Jake and Simon Grammer, and Kellie, Lauren and Julie Grammer. A wonderful brother to Jerry Grammer. He was a man of simple tastes but complex interests. While never needing to be the centre of attention, his genuine, easy going nature made him well liked by all who knew him. Like his beloved Loretta, family was always the central part of his life. We are thankful for having such a great father and grandfather and he will be missed deeply.
