While working at Honeywell he led a team in developing the MK-48 ADCAP torpedo which eliminated new threats from foreign submarines. He was predeceased by his wife of 33 years, Maryl. Grant is survived by his twin brother George Skelton, his daughter Katherine and her husband, Jason, granddaughter, Samantha, and second wife Susan. Others that will miss him include Richard, Jerry, Jeff, Carol, Martha, and his merry gang of Uplanders. He was 81.
