Reuben Oliver (R.O.) Grant Obituary

Reuben Oliver (R.O.) Grant, a subscriber and admirer of The Family Tree, died April 4, 2004, at his home in Thomasville, Georgia. He often spoke of wanting to move to Moultrie, Georgia, a town he always enjoyed visiting. R.O. was a true Scotsman; his mother was Helen MacKenzie and his father was Reuben Oliver Grant, Sr. He was born in West Monroe, Louisiana, on January 12, 1914, and he worked as an accountant for many years. R.O. always drove a comfortable car, and he loved to travel. True to his Scots heritage, he loved seeing what was over the next hill. He lived for many years in Texas, in the Houston area and later in Wichita Falls. R.O. was an avid hunter and fisherman; he preferred his cabin in the Texas Piney Woods to living in town. In later years, he moved to Thomasville to live with his brother, Ralph Gordon Grant, who survives him, along with two nieces, Peggy and Beth, and many cousins. R.O. is buried in Antioch Cemetery, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, in the Grant family plot, where his father, grandfather Reuben Henry Grant, great-grandfather William Miles Grant, and many other family members also are buried. R.O. was very modest and wanted no obituaries, so this is our remembrance of a very special member of our family. - Coleen Grant Hardin
