Grant spent the majority of his time delivering packages to Ocracoke. In the process he learned nearly everyone on the island, and became friends with most.
Grant's cheerful nature, easy smile, and buoyant spirit endeared him to business owners and residents alike.
As testimony to his long connection to Ocracoke he and his wife decided to spend their first post-retirement vacation on the island.
We are all looking forward to toasting Grant whose term of service will be remembered for many years to come.
Congratulations, Grant, and may your retirement be happy and fulfilling!
