Earnest “Earnie” William Grant, 47, passed away March 27, 2007, in Denver.

Earnie was born Sept. 13, 1959, in Glenwood Springs, to Earnest Arthur and Fern Pauline (Lampshire) Grant.

Earnie had been a lifelong resident of the Rifle/Silt area, and worked as an auto mechanic. Friends and family always called for advice and he was always willing to help.

He and Bonnie Gilleland joined their lives together Sept. 13, 1981.

He loved all kinds of cars, camping, jeeping, fishing, computers and most of all, his family.

He is survived by his wife; son Shawn Grant of Silt; brother Lanny Grant of Silt; sister Ginger (Jim) Rodabough of Grand Junction; mother and step-father-in-law Betty and Chuck Taylor of Grand Junction; sisters-in-law Rhonda (Lawrence) Burke of Horsecreek, Wyo., Connie (Pablo) Perea of Grand Junction, brother-in-law Robert Gilleland of Grand Junction and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the American Cancer Society.

A celebration of life service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 1, at Coal Ridge High School, followed by a potluck dinner for everyone.

Farnum Holt Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.
