Alvin Sylvester Grant
Paterson, New Jersey
Jul 22, 1949 – Apr 5, 2012 (Age 62)
Mr. Alvin Grant one of 11 children born to Mr. Rudolph Grant and Mrs. Isadora Wright Grant was born on July 22, 1949 in Clarendon, Jamaica, WI. It was in Kingston Jamaica where he met and fell in love with and went on to marry Jacqueline Henry Grant. The two began their lives together in the West Indies and later moved to Bronx New York where they raised their two daughters, Sharlene Grant-Copeland and Chivvone Grant. As a father he was strict when it came to schooling but fun when it came to life. He enjoyed spending time with his family at home where reminiscing about the past and playing pranks on each other was the norm. Alvin was easy going and down to earth but also straightforward in his beliefs. He would let nothing stress him out. He was always there to lend a helping hand. No mater what it was that you asked him to do he would always oblige and took great pride in doing so. On April 5, 2012 at the young age of 62, Alvin made his transition to be with our father in heaven. He was a father, brother, son, grandfather and friend. He will truly be missed. He leaves behind his wife of over 30 years Jacqueline Grant, daughter, Sharlene and Chivvone, grandchildren, Jaeson, Ahmirah, Winter and Kori, all of which he adored and his many family and friends who all share a special love for him. Although he is gone in the flesh he is definitely not forgotten. His spirit lives on in the hearts of his loved ones. He has never forsaken his family and so we know that he is waiting for us in heaven and one day we will be reunited again. We love you now and forever.
