Obituary of Justin Stuart Grant

January 7, 1971 – June 10, 2024


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Justin on Monday, June 10th, 2024, at the age of 53. Cherished son of Stuart and Jane Grant. Loving father of Isla. Survived by his sisters Heather and Jennifer (Mike) and brother Peter (Erin). Predeceased by his son Vimy and sister Joanna. Justin was the dear uncle to Mason, Elizabeth, Aimee, Ben and Liam. He will be greatly missed by his uncles and aunts, as well as many friends he has made throughout his life.


Justin grew up in Calgary AB where he was the eldest of five children. He attended the University of Calgary’s Bachelor of Arts, Political Science Program.


In 1995 Justin moved to England and joined the Royal Marines where they referenced him during the graduation ceremony as “a guy so laid back he needs wheels on the back of his head”. From 1997-2009 Justin was a member of the Special Boat Service serving the United Kingdom. He lived in Fortuneswell on the Isle of Portland towards the end of his military service and still has a residence there.


Justin received an honours degree in History from the Open University of England in Milton Keynes and was working on his master’s, all while serving the Marines.


He moved to Ottawa in 2010 to be close to his son Vimy (2006 - 2020) and to where his daughter Isla was born (2013).
