In Memoriam


Alan McNabb Grant
May 24, 1940 – November 11, 2019

The Museum of Health Care acknowledges with profound sadness, the sudden passing of Alan Grant at the age of 79.

Alan was a steadfast friend and proud advocate for the Museum, serving as Board Member for more than a decade (2001 to 2013), with nine of those years (2004 to 2013) as the Museum’s President & Board Chair.

He was also involved with many other organizations within the Greater Kingston community, serving as Chairman of APEO (Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario), as Board Chair of Kingston General Hospital, Executive Director and President of Hospice Kingston, Chairman of the Marine Museum of Kingston, President of the Kingston Symphony Association, President of the Gallery Association (Agnes Etherington Arts Centre) and founding member of Orchestra Kingston, which began as chamber music in his home.

An avid athlete, he was a lifelong sailor – on board his yacht Peregrine – while also enjoying swimming, cycling, and speed skating.

Loving husband to Janis Cameron Grant (nee Blue), he was the proud father of Gillian and Jennifer Grant and attentive grandfather to Sierra, Alexis and Océanne.

The Museum of Health Care remembers Alan fondly with gratitude for his many years of loyal service and dedicated leadership. His presence in our midst will be truly missed.
