Grant died Saturday, November 18, 2006. Born in
Atlanta, Ga., he was a son of Gerald Thomas
Gallagher and Kimberly Susan Gallagher. He was a
sophomore at Dutch Fork High School where he was a
member of the Guitar Club and former member of the
wrestling team, as well as track and field. Artistic
and creative, he was an incredibly talented musician
and writer, playing the guitar, trumpet, drums,
bass, and piano, and composing his own music. He
loved life and possessed a great sense of humor. He
loved and respected everyone he ever met, and always
avoided conflict with laughter. His aim was always
to inspire passion and laughter in others, never to
compete or humble.
Grant was a member of St. Peterís Catholic Church.
Surviving are his parents of Columbia and brother,
Gerald William Gallagher. Grant is also survived by
numerous extended family in California, Texas, and
Arizona. He will be dearly, dearly missed.
