Grant wasn’t afraid of hard work which led him to serve in WW ll although he didn’t see any action. Grant & Pauline Hooey married June 10, 1946. Some of his employments were, working in bush camps as a labourer and cat skinner. He also contributed efforts in building Hwy 11 around 1946. He worked at the Alpha milk plant in Red Deer, AB. In 1947 they moved to Red Deer and he worked on the Gaetz Avenue Bridge. In 1955-56 they made a short relocation to Calgary to enroll in Fine Tuning Mechanics. After graduating Grant worked for Lazzer Mechanical Service in Eckville, and Condor Corner Service. He commuted daily to Red Deer to work at Northwest Motors, and eventually at the Chrysler Dealership. In between holding these jobs, he also helped with farming and raising various animals. He then retired in 1996 and continued working for himself with his business Hooey’s Tune-up and Repair. He loved dancing, gardening, music, mechanical tinkering and repairing, playing with dogs, as well as spending quality time with his family. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. Grant touched a great many hearts over his 95 years of life.

He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

An Inurnment Service will be held at the Hespero Cemetery, on July 10, when the family can gather together, celebrating mom Pauline and dad Grant reuniting them, after their time apart.

Condolences

Dean Ross:

Condolences to the families on the passing of Grant. He was a kind and friendly person. I appreciated the fact that he always had time for a chat

George and Heather Loomer:

Our deepest sympathy to all your family. Our thoughts are with you.
My first memories of him are when we worked together at the Calgary Stampede midway in John Wulff's booth. He peeled a lot of potatoes while Pauline cooked along with John and his son and son-in-law and Joyce Granlund and I waited on customers. We were on the job from 8 am til midnight or whenever the last grandstand performance was done. It was bacon and eggs in the morning as we served workers from other booths and then hamburgers and fries the rest of the day. About 1956 I think.
