Colchester - Richard Allen Grant, age 72, of Colchester, VT passed peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Saviour on December 26, 2017.
Born in Burlington, VT on November 4, 1945, to Ray and Catherine Grant. Dick enjoyed a lifetime passion of hunting and fishing throughout Vermont. He especially enjoyed his time at camp in Averill, VT for the last nine years and road trips exploring new areas in that part of the state (plus NH and ME). After working for a few years at UVM, Dick started his own business as owner/operator of The Locksmith Co. for 22 years and was even voted President of the VT Locksmith Assoc. during one of those years - he greatly enjoyed his work and the people he met because of it.
Dick is survived by his fiancé Anne Dubie (her children Kristine Dubie and partner Matt Wells, and Donald J. Dubie, Jr.), his son Bo Grant (his pride and joy), Bo's wife Missy, and grandson Conway, his sisters Elaine LaVigne and Frances Reed, and special friends Steve and Peggy Lesage. He will be greatly missed by those he leaves behind.
He was predeceased by His parents Catherine and Ray Grant, and his sister Norma Bartlett.
Per Dick's request, there will be no visiting hours or funeral services. Interment will be at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are with LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Condolences may be shared at www.lavignefuneralhome.com
