GRANT, Craig Thomas
June 28, 1963 – March 6, 2024

Craig Thomas Grant, born in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, passed away peacefully at his home in Bothwell, ON on March 6, 2024. Craig will forever be remembered for his love and devotion to his family, his passion for motorcycles and cars, and his unwavering willingness to help the ones he loved. His family finds solace that he is now riding his Harley, surrounded by his loved ones, free from pain, in the heavens.

Craig leaves behind his devoted spouse of 18 years, Joanne Healy, and his children Selina (Ken), Craleeim “Pie” (Aaron), Heather (Chuck), and Tabitha (Nick). He was a cherished grandfather to Cheyenne, Kole, Kody, Shaylynn, Savannah, Kaylan, Emma, Oliver, Skylah, Ayvah, Knox, Sophia, and Kash, and a treasured great-grandfather to Emma, Elijah, Ella, Clover, Cali, Lena, and Shenoah. He is survived by his siblings Laurie, Jake, and Lianne, and will be dearly missed by his best friend and first love, Sherry, and his “son” Jay and special nephew Buck, as well as his numerous friends and family members. Craig is now reunited with his siblings Gord and Stan, son Lance and his parents Arnold and Janice, as well as many close family and friends.

Throughout his life, Craig excelled as an Ironworker for the Local 700, leaving his mark on iconic structures such as the Bluewater Bridge and the Windsor Casino. He showcased his talents as a skilled mechanic and body shop specialist, providing quality work to all his clients. But beyond his professional achievements, Craig’s true passion lied in motorcycles, old cars and the joy of sharing a joint. He was a true Harley Davidson enthusiast, with an encyclopedic knowledge of bikes, and even built a custom Harley Davidson pick-up truck.

Family and friends were at the heart of Craig’s existence. He was a true family man and a great friend. With his infectious personality, you could always count on finding him playing with the kids and bringing laughter to everyone around him. He had a spirit of adventure and enjoyed his travels and excursions with Joanne. You could always count on his unwavering support and generosity. He was always there for anyone in need, nothing would stop him from lending a helping hand to the ones he loved. His humor and ability to lighten any room will be deeply missed, and his memory will come alive whenever any Tragically Hip song plays.

In accordance with his wishes, Craig has been cremated, and a celebration of his life will be held at a later date, to be shared with family and friends. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and personal support workers who provided care to Craig, allowing him to spend his final days at home surrounded by his family. Arrangements are entrusted to Smith Funeral Home, Sarnia. Memories and condolences can be shared online at http://www.smithfuneralhome.ca.
