It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands

Grant was one of my-closest friends, we’ve known each other for a very long time. We shared many memories, thoughts and laughs together. I will truly miss this inspiring individual. His passing has left a deep wound in my heart, but I do have many memories to fall back on.
You are a true hero. RIP my brother.
When I first met Grant I knew he was a colorful character. Once I got to know him I knew I was blessed to call him a friend. He always had a story to share. And he always had a jalapeño for a snack and offered to share. He lived hard and loved hard. He will be missed by so many, but we all have our stories to allow us to never forget a legend. A true hero.
He will be sorely missed….
I was so sad to hear this. We all had so many good time with Grant through our years at Addison PD. I am so glad that I kept up with him through the years after. Fly High sweet Grant!
I’ve known Grant since we were crib buddies in the early 1950’s. Our parents were very close. Unfortunately our paths diverge
I’m still at a loss for words. I was truly one of the lucky ones to have known you and called you a friend. Thank you for being my friend, for all the laughs, hugs and knowing what to say when I didn’t. You will be missed, but I will see you again one day. ❤️ RIP
Grant was a great guy. We worked as partners on the FCTF US Secret Service. He never met a bad guy he wasn’t willing to chase. Rest easy my friend. We got it from here.
I met Grant when he was with Rowlett PD. He offered much advice on how we girls should stay out of trouble while humoring us. He was one of the good ones ❤️ RIP my friend.
Grant was a joy to work with! He would make some of the toughest work days a lot lighter with his humor and stories. Condolences to his family. Rest well buddy, I’m sure they have the best Hog Wings in Heaven!!
God truly place’s amazing people in our lives that make our pilgrimage a true wonderment, Sir Grant, was one super amazing man! I shall look forward to seeing you again. Please have your wonderful king ranch chicken prepared! God bless!!
Love always Esmirna and Louis!
Sending my condolences to the family.
Grant you were loved my buddy. I never made it to Dallas for you to make me famous bbq lollipops as you called them. We shall meet again my friend
Job well done
Rest easy ♥️
We’ve known Grant for about 35 yrs. Grant was very special to myself and my family. He was always there if you needed him. Yes, he will be missed. Rest in peace Buddy!
I’m really gonna miss my friend Grant we were wht we called across the alley neighbors. Grant and Terry always looked out for me and my family and watched over my home when I was out of town. One day they got together and decided to stain my fence I told them they didn’t have too , but they just told me they were bored and needed something to do. Also when we had the bad ice storm last year Grant saw me and my son out shoveling snow and ice in the driveway he brought over his blow torch so I could melt the snow/ice to get out for work… he was just that kinda guy. Rest easy my friend miss you already.. LBJ
I met Grant in 1974 when I transferred to HQ Btry 2/14 in Dallas as the new Bn Comm Chief. This was quite a crew of Marines but Grant was the ringleader even as a Cpl. We became friends and had many good times together both as Marines and deputy sheriffs, which there isn’t enough space here to cover even a few. Grant called me the afternoon he passed wanting some information about our old Marine unit as he was working on a reunion plan. You are missed my friend. Fair winds and following seas Marine! Semper Fi!
Didn’t know Grant real well in school but I sure remember how cute he was!
Always real sweet to me when the opportunity came around!!
Did we know the same guy?
This is such a loss to our group and he will be missed dearly. He was a guy with an incredible resume and life. Although it was not immediate in talking with him, Grant was an extremely valuable asset in his many facets of service to our country and some very powerful individuals in his earlier career.
Grant was like his employee#, 67976… he was the same from both directions, he harassed everyone with the same level of disrespect… Just joking, not really … I thought a lot of Grant and considered him a true friend! He always kept me on my toes when he was deployed and always had a joke or a laugh to share to make the day better.
Rest in peace, Grant!!! Happy Birthday and Father’s day! I’ll never be able to look at Coffee, Hog wings, or Jalapenos again without thinking of ya… I’ll miss you, buddy.
Precious one. Some people enter our lives and quickly go.Others enter our hearts, and we are never the same
All the love we shared, all the love you gave will forever be in our hearts (brokenhearted as the are now). We have been truly blessed with you, God’s gift to our family. The shared juneteenth birthday with Cleve fun unlimited with jokes, laughs and meat loaf birthday cakes. We know you rest in the arms of Jesus and we’ll meet on the other side. Always, Nanny & Cleve.
I’ve known Grant since we were crib buddies in the early 1950’s. Our parents were very close and played a lot of bridge. He was a year behind me at TJ. I still fondly remember a trip to Port Aransas that we took following my graduation from TJ in 1969 with his Mom Jan. When Grant later joined the Marines my Dad wrote a letter to Grant every other day while he was at boot camp to keep his spirits up. Unfortunately our paths diverged after we each got married in the mid 70’s. We only spoke sporadically after that. Grant reached out to me a week before he died saying he wanted to get together for a cool one. We met at his favorite bar in Richardson and had a terrific three hour visit, got caught up on things, and planned another meeting with my wife, and my brother and his wife. Sadly, Grant passed away the next day. I will always regret letting all those years get away from us. Grant was truly one of a kind with his infectious belly laugh, razor sharp wit, and kindness to others. I will miss him a lot!! SEMPER FI GYRENE!!!!
Unlike any other experience in this life, losing a friend or family member absorbs our memories to realize how much we will miss your presence. Just as the evening of a day leaves a remnant of a forgotten day, you won’t be forgotten. You rode life like a bicycle and kept your balance toward family and friends, through your smiles, laughter, and kindness along the way, I can only say… I will miss you Jack Grant and thank you for being a friend at heart.
Belated Welcome home from Vietnam.
Better yet, welcome home to your Lord and Savior Jesus home of eternity.
Grant Jack was a stand up individual. I am saddened to learn of his passing. Respectfully submitted: Charles Hamilton.
