April 08, 2024

Grant Bohnet, 72, died peacefully in his home on March 18, 2024, in San Tan Valley, Arizona and now joins our Lord and all his cherished loved ones who passed before him. He was preceded in death by his parents, Margarette and Frank Bohnet, his brother Brian, first wife Ann, second wife Karen, and his daughter Elizabeth.

Grant is survived by his wife Sandy and his children Jennifer Armstrong (Chuck), Pam Miles (Jonathan), and James Bohnet (Julia), along with grandchildren Kevin, Andrea, Keri (Chris), Andrew, Keith, Ryder, Kai and Declan. Grant has two wonderful great- grandchildren, Olivia and Raymond Jr.

Grant’s surviving brother Ernie Bohnet (Karen), along- side nieces and nephew Dan- ielle, Brooke and David, as well as numerous in-laws also mourn his passing.

Grant was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and was the youngest of three boys. He and his brothers would build a train set around the dinner table to pass the condiments regularly. He enjoyed the out- doors immensely, including hiking, canoeing, camping and traveling.

In his younger years he was employed by Canadian logging companies as a medic and later taught First Aid courses at the college in Prince George. Some of his greatest accomplishments were designing the first drafts of the computer RISK game in the early 1980’s and the first long distance building-to-building data communication in the later 1980’s. Grant was fully invest- ed in the growing computer and technical industry and worked for the major companies of Develcon, Summation, Siemens, PhysioControl, and Boeing retiring after 22 years.

In his later years he enjoyed road tripping, visiting friends and family across the continent. When Grant wasn’t exploring national parks, he would be playing cribbage with anyone that was willing. His record was 32 games in one go with his brother Ernie.

Grant could often be found tinkering, repairing and buil- ding things. He would be fo- und under the hood of a car, swapping out engines, helping family with building projects, or engineering new computer code. Always on hand with chicken wire and duct tape for the quick and reliable fixes on any road trip.

Grant will be missed terribly but leaves his mark in the world with his dad humor, hardworking ethics, advice, ingenuity, strong faith and ab- solute willingness to serve anyone in need around him. Grant will be remembered and cherished as a wonderful father, husband, grandfather/ great grandfather, coworker, and friend by many.

There will be a private family graveside service on April 13, 2024 in San Tan Valley, followed by a reception with the family at his house. Please RSVP at for the address. If unable to attend, a live streaming link will be emailed to you upon request. Memorial donations in Grant’s name can be made to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) or the National Parks Service (NPS).
