Grant Gurr Obituary

Passed away "suddenly" after a very lengthy endurance of illnesses...

Grant is sadly missed by his loving wife of 16+ years ... Carol Joan Henderson Patey (Gurr), with whom he shared 8 stepchildren,  29  step-grandchildren and 15 step-great grandchildren. Within a short time after "stepping" into this large family, came lasting memories and special bonding.

Grant has 2 daughters: Twyla Gurr of Lethbridge, Paige O'Byrne (Josh) of Eastend, Sask., along with her 2 children, Carter and Lexy Armstrong (Marty), also of Eastend, Sask. Grant loves them all dearly and they truly made his face "light up".

Grant has 4 siblings: 1 sister, Harriett (Gurr) Dickson, Okotoks, Ab. 3 brothers: Phillip (Deloris) Gurr, Diamond City, Ab., Glen Gurr (deceased), Calgary, Ab., Darren Gurr, Okotoks, Ab.

Grant is predeceased by his parents, William Grant and Margueritte (Pavan) Gurr, along with many aunts, uncles and cousins. His grandparents, Joseph and Maria Pavan were deeply loved and admired.

Living relatives include many Pavan/Gurr cousins, nieces and nephews.

Grant often mentioned how much he loved the life he chose. His dreams and accomplishments in Rodeo and Farming were realized.

He loved nature ... the wilderness, the great outdoors ... learning about remote and indigenous people, places and cultures. He was forever engulfed and emerged in books and maps with this insatiable desire. He dreamed of the Great North. With natural instinct, he voiced his love and admiration of Mountain Men. He often said he wanted to be one.

Grant's natural desire and passion for anything "historical" was amazing ... especially relating to Lethbridge and surrounding areas... being so familiar with the "River Valley" while growing up.

To all our dear friends, including our "Music Buddies" ... what can we say? We love you all! A special thank you to Randy Hillman! Your music brings joy to everyone. You are a blessing ... one who brightened Grant's life more than you know.

How can Grant be described? He was like a "Storm" ... a Determined Soul to be reckoned with!

Thank you to all the doctors who knew and attended to Grant for so many years. Special thanks to Dr. Aaron Coma, Dr. David Stewart and Family Medical, as well as to Dr. Lee Oviatt and Dr. Morley Wong.
