Timothy F. Grant, 67, of Oswego, passed away on Monday, February 5 at St. Joseph’s Hospital after a brief illness. He was born in Oswego on September 6, 1950. In 1968 Tim graduated from Oswego High School and was then a graduate of SUNY Oswego. His passion early in life his was music beginning in the mid 1960’s with the local band, “TG & the Night Ryders.” In the late 1970’s he pursued his love of music in New York City where he perfected his talent on the piano. Tim worked and entertained at numerous places including the elite Lotos Club in Manhattan. Years later, he moved to Newburyport, MA where he continued playing the piano. In 2013, he returned home to Oswego and shared his keyboard talents at a few local places. He was currently employed at the Oswego Hospital, working in the Environmental Services Department. Tim greatly enjoyed his job and always expressed his appreciation and admiration for the special friendships he formed with his co-workers and with the entire staff at the hospital. In addition to his musical talents he most likely will be remembered for his incredible sense of humor and his unforgettable smile.
