Obituary

On Friday, January 31, 2020, the Lord saw it fit to call into eternal rest, Robert C. Grant.

Following his time at the VA, he joined the US Army in 1961 and became an Emergency Medical Specialist. In 1965, he completed Clinical Specialist School and became a Licensed Practical Nurse. He worked as a Medical Corpsman and Clinical Specialist until 1976. For the next four years, he worked as a Transplant Coordinator Procurement Technician.

After years at home in Maryland, Robert decided to go back to work at Kohl's. He just wanted to help people again and stay busy. In 2015, he moved back to Battle Creek to be around family.
