Colin Francis Grant, Jr., 83, passed away peacefully at home on September 26. He is survived by his children, Katherine, Michael, Patricia, Coleen, Maureen, Christine, and Matthew, and twelve grandchildren. Colin was the eldest of four children born to Colin and Eloise Grant; a lifelong Bay Area resident, devout catholic, family man, outdoor enthusiast, graduate of Cogswell College and entrepreneur.
Colin met his wife, Norma Moro, at the Newman Center at UC Berkeley, married in 1957 and settled in the Almaden Valley in 1972. Colin took great pride in his family and never recovered from the death of his wife in 2015 after 57 years of marriage. His children and grandchildren remained the focus of his energy.
Friends and family are invited to celebrate Colin's life at a memorial service on October 14th at 10:00 am at Saint Anthony's Church in San Jose. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations made to Sobrato Family Foundation or The Lymphoma Society
