Peacefully passed away on March 27, 2021 in Kitchener, Ontario. Grant was born in Montreal, Quebec to parents Woodrow Edward Wilson and Irene Wilson.
Grant attended McGill University and the University of Toronto completing an engineering degree before transferring to the University of Western Ontario, where he received a Masters in Applied Mathematics.

Grant forged his path through life leaving a memorable impression on those he met; having accomplished great feats of athleticism, saving a family from a raging torrent, surviving a helicopter crash while working as an engineer and traveling the world for years at time.
During his downtime between travels, Grant would spend time with his younger first cousins (1R) Adam Newington (Jordan) and Morgan Newington (Karen) who he always referred to as his nephews. Grant is also survived by first cousins Wayne Nesbit (Angela), Carol Newington and first cousin (1R) Robert Poirier (Judy).
