Obituary of Steven Grant
Steven Howard Grant, 59, passed away Sunday, July 28th, with his beloved wife, Kris, by his side. Steve was an active member of several St. Petersburg communities and loved by many who had the honor of knowing him.
Steve was born in Highland Park, Ill., grew up there, and moved to Treasure Island, FL at the age of 13. He was a very devoted and loving husband and father. His children and wife came first before all others, including himself. He is survived by his wife, Kris Marquez Grant, and his five children, Jamie, Abbie, Alexander, Samuel, and Benjamin; his brother, Edward Clay Grant, and stepbrother, Kevin Burrill.
Steve and Kris were inseparable. He took every opportunity to spend time with her even if it meant doing grunt work at Shorecrest. They could often be found traveling nearly every weekend to visit their five children across the country. More than anything, Steve valued quality time spent with his family.
Steve was an impeccable bookkeeper and a finance whiz. He spent much of his career helping start-up technology companies succeed and did so with incredible integrity. As a local philanthropist, Steve focused his efforts toward projects and places that impacted his children directly, including their schools, Temple Beth-El and All Children’s Hospital.
His stewardship inspired many around him to also become involved and to aspire to achieve higher goals. His passing will leave an empty space within our community and in many hearts, and his love will endure through the many souls he helped.
