Harold "Hal" Grant

Harold (Hal) Grant longtime resident of Altamont passed away Monday January 24th at the age of 95. Son of the late Chester and Evelyn DuMond- Grant. Beloved husband of Beryl N. Grant.

Hal enjoyed family times together and raising his daughter and three boys together with Beryl on Helderberg Avenue and later at Leesome Lane in Altamont. Hal enjoyed a long career with DuBois Chemicals as a Sales District Manager and projects around home. He served in the US Army Air Force in Okinawa during WW II. The family camp in Newcomb in the Adirondacks has been a family treasure since the 1960’s and his chair on the porch will hold many fond memories. He kept active with many groups in the area; St. John’s Lutheran Church, St. Andrews Society, Altamont Caregivers, Altamont Fire Department, Old songs, and the Scottish Games. When he was in his early twenties, he rode his Harley motorcycle as part of a polo team with his father Chet. He enjoyed hunting and the outdoors especially in the Adirondacks and traveling with Beryl and family. Hal was the glue of the family who kept us all abreast of family news. Together they created a great influence and loving, cherished relationships with their children, grand and great grandchildren that will last long into the future of our family.

In addition to his wife Beryl, Hal is survived by his children Kathryn Davis (Robert) Lawrence (Sandy) Richard (Late Patty) and Bradley Grant (Jana) Also survived by his Grandchildren Matthew and Michael Phelps, Dennis Grant, Jessica Philips, Scott Grant, Rick Grant, Mark Grant, Heather Smith, Allison O’Connor, Brianna Grant, Natalie Grant; 14 great grandchildren, and a Great- great Grandchild.

Predeceased by his Great grandson Cody Phillips.

Services for Hal will be at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Altamont Saturday April 9th at 10:30 AM. In lieu of flowers kindly consider a contribution to St. John’s Lutheran Church 140 Maple Avenue, Altamont, NY 12009 in Harold’s memory. 


Mr. Grant and his wife were always respected by me. Their son Larry and I where friends growing up and I spent a lot of time at their home on the hill. I swam in their pond many summers. Mr. Grant was always welcoming, kind and friendly. Mrs. Grant was my Sunday School teacher as a young boy. May the love of Jesus and his promise of eternal life to those who believe comfort the entire Grant family in the passing of Mr. Grant.

Obviously a treasured pillar of his community and in his family. What a wonderful legacy of fine people he leaves as a tribute to his goodness as a giving man. Sympathy to all his dear ones. Rest in Peace Mr. Grant.

Grandpa, you will be greatly missed. I loved when you called and let me know all about the family news. You were always so excited when I called you. My greatest memories with you were when you taught me how to drive stick shift in your truck (which ironically you sold a few days later) and taking me on numerous motorcycle rides in Berne while filling me on stories of your life. You were an easy conversationalist and I will miss our chats a lot. Love you! Heather

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Beryl and family. He was a great President of Creekside Condos and really kept the place going. Hal, you will be missed.
