Obituary of Robert (Bob) Grant
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Grant, who passed away peacefully from heart failure at his Waterloo home last Saturday. Lovingly mourned by his son Trevor, Trevor’s wife Stephanie and their young son William; and his daughter Alison Phillips and her son Keegan and daughter Emma; along with Bob’s sister Jennifer, brother Bill and their respective families. He was also dearly loved and will be missed by many other family and friends.
Bob was born in Toronto but grew up in Ottawa. He attended Queen’s University, achieving both a bachelors of Arts degree and a Law degree.
Bob was a longtime resident of Kitchener-Waterloo and was a firm believer in giving back to his community.

An avid skier and outdoorsman himself, Bob also was a volunteer with Waterloo Region Track 3 Ski program and KidsAbility.
