Obituary for Eugene William Grantham

Eugene “Gene” William Grantham, a recent resident of Howell, and formerly of Linden, Fenton, and his cherished farm in Hillsdale, passed away at the University of Michigan Hospital, Ann Arbor on February 7, 2016 at the age of 97.

He became a winemaker–mastering varieties of Dandelion, Grape, Elderberry, Strawberry-Rhubarb, and Goosesberry. Many of Dorothy’s meals were complemented by Gene’s wine.

Gene was blessed with an extended family which included step-daughter Christine (Brian) Kelly, son-in-law Tim Dooley; grandchildren, Sara (Cody) Frasz, Katie (Steven) Byrd, Megan Kelly and Brendan Dooley.
