John Walter Grant

John Walter Grant “Zahey” transitioned from this life on January 23, 2021, surrounded by his family.

John followed up his U.S. Forest Service, military-Air Force, and BIA-law enforcement careers to fulfill his true passion, becoming an artisan of stone and mixed mediums. Throughout his professional ventures he achieved numerous specialized accomplishments and excellence recognition awards. When he shared his life-stories he could charismatically engage an audience quickly, welcoming the time he spent with loved ones and friends. He resided and traveled throughout the states and will be missed and loved by many.

John is proceeded in death by his parents Ernest and Rebecca (Catolster) Grant, two brothers Syd and Raymond Grant, and two grandchildren Devan Jackson and Mica Henio. He is survived by his eight children, Marsha Jackson, John Toineeta, Lamont Henio, Danial Paul Scott, Sissy Toineeta (Coon), Marcus Grant, Kody Grant (Ariel), and Michelle Chavez (Doolie), as well as one special daughter Lynette Chavez.  His siblings Amy Walker, Toni Tauquette, General Grant (Ute), Harley Grant (Brenda), and Patty Grant-Edgemon (Andrew).  He also leaves behind 14 grandchildren, one great grandchild, nieces, nephews, extended family and his best friends John Gloyne, Teet, Alva.

I remember John making the plexiglass and statue art piece. He described what it was like to cross over to the other side. He came back that time. This time he stayed. Thank you John for your stories. I appreciate all the fond memories. Blessings to you on your journey. Peace and comfort to all the friends and relatives.
