Jeffery ‘Jeff’ John Grant

April 6, 1970 - January 9, 2023

Jeff passed easily into rest at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton, with his wife Jennifer at his side.  Jeff was diagnosed with Lymphoma in October, 2021.  His courage and positive mindset carried him through several rounds of treatment, and stayed with him through to his last days.

Much loved husband of Jennifer and fiercely proud father of George.  Jeff was predeceased by his father, Richard.  He is survived by his mother, Anita (née Reaume); brother Tim; sister Kim Winia (Jeremiah); nieces and nephews: Beverly, Matthew, Danielle, Isabelle, Nadine, Jamie and Alice.  He will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and his wonderful friends, who were able to surround him in his final days

Jeff will be remembered for his strength, his sense of humour, his storytelling, and his love of cooking, travel and the outdoors.  Friends and family were central in Jeff’s life, and he enjoyed spending time with them, whether it be weekend dinners at his Mom’s, large Reaume gatherings, or WWW fishing trips with the boys.  And the many hotel stays in so many places with Jen and George!

A heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff who treated Jeff at the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital, the London Regional Cancer Program and Juravinski Cancer Clinic and Hospital.

Per Jeff’s wishes, his body has been cremated. A memorial reception will be held on Sunday, February 19, 2023 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., with words of remembrance at 2:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, anyone who wishes to honour Jeff is requested to make a contribution to The Terry Fox Foundation, or to George’s education fund via e-transfer to

Jeff was a teammate and a school friend at Lucas. I always enjoyed his humor and smile, I looked forward to spending time with him. This is a huge loss for everyone. Thinking of you and wishing you moments of peace and comfort as you remember Jeff.

~ Steve Monteith

This one has been tough. Jeff and I went to Northbrae together for the elementary years and then Lucas for the high school years. We'd see each other occasionally through the college/university years and then I moved away. That left birthdays, weddings and funerals as the only opportunity to spend time with him, which I always enjoyed. I'm thankful for Facebook for letting me see his married life, the growth of George and ultimately his battle with cancer. I look forward to returning to London in February to see the family and old friends and celebrate his life. I will always have my lifelong memories of the time we spent together and that gives me comfort now that he's gone.

To Jennifer and George. My heart breaks for you both. I worked with Jeff several years ago but his spirit and friendship stayed with me. Watching him be so positive and brave over the past months was a true testament to his character. May your fond memories sustain you and your family’s love hold you up.

I spent many years on the Health and Safety Committee with Jeff at Vari-Form. We shared a lot of stories over the years about fishing and our kids. Jeff’s biggest smile that I ever seen was the day he came to work to tell everyone that Jen was expecting the birth of their son George. He was a very proud father and husband and he shared so many stories with everyone. Our condolences to Jen, George and family!

~ Randy and Natalie Jones
