Daniel Grant

Mar. 25, 1920 – May 5, 2014

Grant, beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather was born on the family farm at Erskine, Alberta to Harry and Sarah Rowledge, the youngest son in a family of five children. He attended Behrens and Erskine Schools and later married Verna Barber on November 17, 1943. His memory will be cherished by his son Terry (Janet) Rowledge and their daughters Bonnie (AJ), their children Bryan, Olivia, Emily and Kalley, Sheri (Glen) and children Gracie, Rachel and Chance; daughter Donna (Curt) Peterson and sons Craig (Jenny) their children Ryan, Jacob and Hayes, Jeff (Mandy) and children Brody, Elliot and Evyn; daughter Linda (Terry)Unger and family Alexis (Kurtis), Lacey, Jes (Todd) and children Toby and Isabel, Caleb (Jill) and children MaKenzie, Addie, Arlo, Talia (Scott); son Murray (Wendy) Rowledge and their family Rhiannon, Sarah (Lee) and children Branson and Kate, Cody (Chelsey) and Bennett. Grant was predeceased by his infant son Barry Grant, his first wife Verna, second wife Phyllis and all his siblings. He is also survived by his faithful friend Olwin Pearson and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and their families. Grant dedicated his life to farming, raising Charolais cattle and grain in the Erskine area until retiring to Stettler in 2005. The Erskine United Church and his community were important to him and he contributed in many ways. He was an avid hunter and enjoyed singing, yodelling, playing cards, fast horses and cars. He played and coached ball and hockey, curled, was a 4-H leader and enjoyed travelling. Grant had a great sense of humour and liked practical jokes. The last few years were a struggle due to his loss of hearing and failing eyesight. The family will be forever grateful to his friend Olwin Pearson who helped him by being his “eyes and ears.” Funeral services will be held at 2:30 on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at Stettler Funeral Home 4707-70 St., Stettler, Alberta. Private family interment will take place at Erskine Cemetery prior to the service.
