Danny Lloyd Grant
Danny Lloyd Grant, 84 years of age, having enjoyed a long and successful career as Copy, Wire, then News Editor at the Shreveport Times and having lived a gratifying personal life as an avid reader, world traveler, gardener, and bowler, passed away at the Overton-Brooks VA Medical Center on March 03, 2013. Danny was a native of Corpus Christi, and a long-time resident of Shreveport and then Keatchie, Louisiana, upon retirement. His remarkable depth of character, sharp wit, unflappable good nature, and enviable memory garnered him a devoted family and many loyal friends.
Danny was preceded in death by his beautiful and talented wife, Billie Harris Grant, his father, Lloyd E. Grant, his mother, Sophia Grant Wentworth, and his brother Edward Lee Grant.
He is survived by his sister Elaine Kane and husband, Bob, his sister Sandra Petty and husband, Steve, his brother Bill Wentworth and wife, Jeannie, his sister-in-law Marlene Grant, his sister-in-law, Jean Wilson, his step-son, Daniel Lloyd Moore, and wife, Susan; his step-daughter, Nita Palermo, and husband, Carl. Danny is also survived by grandchildren James Moore and family, Robert Duncan and family, Lisa Wykel and family, step-grandchildren Stephen Palermo and family, and Shannon Wright and family, plus a host of nieces and nephews. Danny's faithful fur-friend, Lolita, also survives Danny, and will be lost without his unfailing and caring welcome after each of her long, unwarranted absences.
The family would like to thank those who provided professional care to Danny, at both the Rose View Nursing Home and the Overton-Brooks VA Medical Center.
The family owes a deep debt of gratitude to step-son, Danny Moore, who was Danny Grant's primary caregiver over the years, to sister-in-law and friend, Jean Wilson, and to neighbor and friend, Andy Loftus, all of whom gladly performed countless acts of kindness on Danny's behalf.
A visitation hour, memorial service, and military honors for Mr. Grant will be held at Rose-Neath Funeral Home at 2500 Southside Drive, Shreveport, LA 71118, on Thursday, March 7, commencing at 3:00pm. Graveside services for Mr. Grant will be held for immediate family at a later date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to The American Cancer Society
