Rufus "Lee" Grason
Rindge, NH — Rufus "Lee" Grason, age 68, of Rindge, New Hampshire, decided it was time to move on to his next adventure, following a heroic and courageous fight with cancer.
Son of Rufus L. & Edna B. Grason, Lee grew up in Lincoln, Massachusetts and graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School.
Most of Lee's career was spent in the medical instrumentation industry, with a major focus on audiology. He chaired, volunteered and served on many standards committees for ANSI, ASA, and the IEC, developing and reviewing many standards over his tenure. Lee had a passionate belief in bettering the industry for everyone. He won many awards, was recognized for his service during his career, but never liked to speak of his own accomplishments; a self-described maverick of the industry who marched to the beat of his own drum.
Lee enjoyed travel, riding motorcycles, sailing, tinkering and "improving" his equipment. He became fast friends with many people he met in his travels and had the uncanny ability to strike up deep conversations with folks he just met. (Why is it taking him an hour inside the gas station?) Lee always looked at the good in everyone and did everything he could to help his family and friends.
Lee is survived and will be greatly missed by his wife Sharon P. Grason; son Jordan L. Grason and his wife Katharine and grandson, Bearrick of Jaffrey, New Hampshire; sister Doris G. Shaw and her husband David of Peterborough, New Hampshire; sister Kathryn G. Ramon of Lincoln, Massachusetts; many nieces, nephews and close friends.
Services will be private.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made in Rufus "Lee" Grason's name to the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in support of the NICU and PICU, a cause in which he believed. Contributions can be made at chadkids.org/donate
