Passing of UA Member Grant Young 
October 31, 2018  

Grant was born in Biggar, SK on September 21, 1964, son to William (aka Bill) Young and Vera (nee  Hedges) Johnson-Young. He remained close with his mother to this day. He had five brothers and one  sister... Garth, Keith, Lynn, Glen, (then Grant), Darren, and David. Ted Johnson later became Grant's  stepfather, who also had three children, Tim Tammy, and Shelby... all who Grant considered siblings.  (Grant has been predeased by his father Bill, stepfather Ted, and stepsister Shelby.) He was raised in Stoughton during his early years and then moved to Swift Current, where he went to  High School. He worked for Western Hide and Fur until he moved to Regina with friends in his early 20s. He met Joyce in 1987, along with her daughter Marie, who was six years old. His only son Bret was born three years later in 1990. Joyce and Grant were married on May 22, 1993 at Holy Family Parish. They just celebrated their 25th Anniversary this year. Grant received his Journeyman Certificate as Sprinkler Systems Installer on Feb. 22, 1993, and worked mainly for Vipond Fire Protection. He leaves to mourn: mother Vera; his siblings listed above; wife Joyce; son Bret; stepdaughter Marie and son-in-law Joe; grandchildren Kaili and Vaida; mother and father-in-law Harley and Dorothy Williamson; brother-in-law Brent who was one of his best friends in life. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, in-laws, and friends. He was a good Father, Grandpa, Uncle, Brother, Son, Husband and Friend. Even though he struggled internally for many years, he tried to do everything for us. He was kind hearted and generous, always meaning well. Grant died on October 10, 2018. We will mourn his passing, and our world will never be the same...but  we forgive him, and we take comfort in knowing he will finally be at Peace and with God.
