EION GRANT (d.1983)

Eion Grant died on Tuesday 14th December after suffering his second heart attack. He was cremated at Hanworth Crematorium on Wednesday 29th December. His ashes were taken to Scotland, and scattered there, as he wished.

Eion was a regular visitor to the Grapevine, for a number of years. He also helped out on Front of House. He would never wear a coat without sporting his SNP badge. This was as much a display of his Scots Nationalism as anything else - just as he would wear his tartan kilt proudly on every Burns Night and New Year's Eve.

He could be relied on for a good conversation, and his gentle humour and old-fashioned charm, made him a true gentleman of the old order.
