In 1978, he moved to Alexandria, where he worked at Crestwood Golf Course. In 1979, he started his 42-year career at Arrowwood Resort. Grant enjoyed fishing, golfing, and flea markets. He very much enjoyed spending time with his wife, kids, and grandkids. Grant’s life in all areas was centered around his faith in Jesus, the love of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the gift of eternal life because of what Jesus did for Him.

Grant was preceded in death by his parents; and four unborn grandkids.

Grant is survived by his loving wife, Laurie; children, Beth (Matthew), Sarah, Peter, Debbie, and Mary (Jeremiah); grandchildren, Maggie, A.J., Naomi, Matthew Jr., Thea Rose and Carmen Willow; Allie and Elijah who were like grandkids to Grant, their mother Julie (Stephen); Peyton and Agnes who also were like grandkids to him, and their mother Dominica; brothers, Ron (Dar) and Jim (Rosalie); sisters, Linda (Daryl) and Cindy (Dwayne); nephews, nieces, grandnephews, grandnieces, other relatives and friends. Grant loved them all!

Grant thanked God for all his blessings. Praise Jesus!

For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Our entire family sends sympathy and prayers to the Gault Family. We remember Grant as the biggest cheerleader at the Alexandria Cardinals Gymnastics competitions. He cheered and praised every athlete, which meant more to them than you know. He was a very kind person.

Grant was the most genuinely kind person I have ever met. Even after it being 30 years that I worked with him at Arrowwood , the memories of him immediately came flowing back to me. It saddens me to know that this truly one of a kind person has left us so soon. He always inspired me to do my best. My thoughts go out to his family. His love for life was always so evident.

I met Grant while I was working convention set up at Arrowwood during high school. He was always so friendly and kind, I always enjoyed bumping into him! Such a genuinely good person, just exchanging hello's with him made your day brighter! :)

Such an amazing man of faith! Grant's love to share his faith with the children and adults was infectious. A friend to all and to all a friend. Our deepest sympathies to Laurie and the family

"Well helloooo, Lichtys!!!" We'd know from the other end of the parking lot that it was Grant who was holding the door open at church. His warm greeting and smile were intoxicating, and his hugs when I was hurting were so healing. Seeing him interact with the kids at AWANA warmed my heart every time. He will be missed.

Grant and I have been Buddies since the First Grade and our next golf match will be on a more beautiful golf course..
