Edward Grant Obituary

Edward L. Grant, a loving and kind brother, uncle, and great-uncle, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2023, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, MA. Born in Norwood he was raised in Sharon, MA, where he was a life-long resident and a cherished member of his community and will be sorely missed.

Edward was the beloved brother of Pamela Grant and her husband Daniel Hussey of Blackstone. He was a devoted uncle to Christopher A. Hussey and his wife Allison of Worcester, and Kevin Hussey and his wife Valerie of Blackstone. As a great-uncle, he adored his great-niece Olivia Hussey of Worcester and great-nephew Ryan Hussey of Blackstone. He is also survived by many cousins living throughout the country.  His family was the cornerstone of his life, and his generous spirit will forever be remembered in their hearts.

A graduate of Sharon High School, Edward furthered his education at the Wentworth Institute of Technology. His education led him to a fulfilling career in plumbing, a trade that became his life's work. For many years, Edward worked in the family business, Grant Plumbing and Heating in Sharon. Later, he served in the Plumbing Department at HQ in Norwood and Home Depot in Norwood. Known as the "Go-to Guy" for any plumbing issues, Edward's expertise and dedication to his craft were widely recognized and appreciated.

Beyond his professional life, Edward was known for his love of leisure activities. A regular at the American Legion in Canton, where he enjoyed playing KENO at the bar with his ginger ale in hand. He was also passionate about following the horses at Plainridge Track and Casino in Plainville. An avid NASCAR fan, Edward spent many weekends watching the races. However, his favorite pastime was spending time with his sister Pam's family. These experiences brought him immense joy and created countless cherished memories.

Edward L. Grant was a man of simple pleasures who found happiness in the company of his loved ones and the satisfaction of a job well done. His loving and generous nature, coupled with his unwavering dedication to his family and work, made him a pillar of his community. His loss will be deeply felt by all who knew him.
