Me and my grandpa (grant) would always sit on his chair at his desk for a hour or so listening to my favourite song and his making it work whenever I told him a joke he would always cringe his face up and smile then start laughing when I was born he’d always hold me well until the other two girls came along (kaya and Dyxson) me and grandpa would always go hunting one time we caught a raccoon as I grew older he paid attention to the others.

Hello, my name is David Beck and after seeing the "share a memory" link on Ross Funeral Service's home page, I decided to share some thoughts about my co-worker and friend, Grant Chase. I have personally known Grant the better part of 34 years, but felt I only really started to know him when I became foreman on Crew 32, over 6 years ago, where Grant held the Utility II position for many years and I can say without a doubt, I am going to miss him.
I'll miss our talks and discussions on reloading, hunting, his favourite rifles and calibers, the great Ford/Chevy debate and of course, his uncanny knowledge of John Deere tractors.
I remember a debate Grant was having with some fellas about a "Particular" John Deere tractor's engine type, transmission and other features that it came out with, but Grant would not be swayed with their explanation of that tractor; a few hours later, someone else on the crew googled the information on that tractor - only to find out that Grant was correct on All Points!
Grant could operate almost anything on the mine site and helped me move equipment in and out of the shop, frequently - Grant running the equipment and me operating the overhead doors, especially over the winter months. We worked on many projects and tasks together over the years and Grant was always a willing hand. Grant also helped and assisted the light duty mechanics, electricians, welders, heavy duty mechanics, machinists, utililty and myself in stores, when called upon.
Grant had many characteristics and being helpful, kind, approachable, understanding and very respectful in his everyday dealings with myself and others are only a few of them.
These were and are the thoughts and memories that I have of Grant, but are shared by so many at the mine. Rest In Peace.
From Crew 32: Dave Beck, Gil Trithardt, Mitch Pituley, Rob Drake, Rick Cairns, Richard Blanchette, Guy Durand, Brad Lewis, Don Amell, Nathan McCaslin, Elmer Dyck, Darwin Karst, Rod Lewis and Travis Hiendrichs.
