To Halima, Alyson, Adam, Naomi, and Micheal. Although i didn't know Mr. Grant, my brother, Tony knew him, and spoke very highly of Robert. Tony knew Adam since he was a toddler, so it goes to show how far back they've been friends. May God shine His graces on His soul! Amen.

My condolences to Halima and the children. I was sad to hear that Robert had passed and sadder because I heard late. The memories of our numerous battles on the squash court will remain with me. Robert was a great guy and I enjoyed playing with him till I gave up squash in 2004. He had a mischievous sense of humour and will be greatly missed.
Posted by Adekunle Adewale on January 20, 2014

Still missed, loved and always dear

Je ne vous ai pas connu, mais je connais bien votre fils Michael, pour qui j'ai toujours eu beaucoup de respect pour son humilité, sa gentillesse, sa générosité, son ouverture vers les autres. A chaque fois que je le voyais, j'ai toujours pensé à ses parents pour son excellente éducation. Toutes mes condoléances à la famille Grant.

The T!!!! All i can say is that you were simply the best. There isn’t a day that goes by where i don’t think about you. You were my best friend, the perfect role model, and not such a bad squash player! You taught me everything I know. My life will never be quite the same and i can’t wait till we meet again. I love you always.

Three months gone, but still very much in our hearts and thoughts...........

Mr. Grant,Yesterday was exactly 3 months that you passed to the other side. It seemed so much longer. It is still like a dream. How can such a vibrant person just go, just like that?Life is such a mystery. I just watched the video on this website and the testimonies brought tears to my eyes. It shows what a good person you were. Rest in Perfect Peace RG till we meet on the other side.
Posted by Adekunle Adewale on February 24, 2012
When I heard of the tragic demise of my beloved boss (Mr.Robert Grant) I became dreary because I was extremely junior to him to give appraisal on his behavioural exhibitions. My prayer is that God should grant him eternal rest Amen.

A GENEROUS, HUMOUROUS AND NON-DISCRIMINATORY MAN

Shared by Sholla Balogun Taofeek Ba... on December 28, 2011

Mr. Grant was a “people person”. He was also very humorous and non-discriminatory regardless of one’s colour or rank.

I remember one occasion when i went to sign some documents in his office. His daughter was with him.  Despite being a very junior member of staff, he said to me, “Tooth-pick” (his nick-name for me), why are you looking at my daughter?. She’s too small for you oh. Shebi i don give you Lara already (Lara was the cashier at the time). You took her away from me. You know that you have to work very hard, to be able to look after Lara. You know that she dey see plenty money”. He ended by saying “Tooth pick, i dey go chop oh, abi make i no eat?” (His pidgin English for “i want to go and eat, or shoudn’t i?” .

 Lara was later transferred to another subsidiary and one day when he came to our department to see my boss, he quipped, “I don send Lara away, because you no look after am” (i’ve sent Lara away because you cant look after her”.

There were other instances where he would see me and say, “Tooth-pick, this your shirt is fine oh. You go give me?”

Last Christmas, i took some documents to his house and when i got there, i was really scared of his dogs and wouldn’t go in to his living room, for fear of being bitten. He laughed and laughed at the expression on my face and reassured me that they were harmless. He cracked some jokes with me and as i was about to leave to go back to the office, he brought out his wallet and gave me some money for transport.

I cannot begin the mention all the other things that Mr. Grant has done. He was a compassionate man and a father to all. I will surely miss him. May God grant him eternal rest and comfort the family he left behind.

 

 

A spirited and generous man

Rob Grant is my dearest friend. A loving father and generous man. A fun loving guy and demon sportsman.I spent too long on the tennis courts with Rob trying to work out his wonderful game.Such incredible hand/eye coordination. It was always great talking between games.There were the funny stories and some 'wahala' going on somewhere! He was the most generous of fellows.Lovely Sunday trips to the beach or 'let's all go out to dinner' or 'come over to the house' where a warm bar and chilled champagne was always on offer....... Rob I'm missing you so much All the Stephenson family,Angie,James,Alex and Viviane send our love at this difficult time to Halima,Adam,Naomi and Michael saddened that we can't be in Scotland with you today.....'Standfast' Peter Stephenson,Lagos,Nigeria 19 December 2011
