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 1960s with the local band, “TG & the Night Ryders.”

In the late 1970s 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, Mass., 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 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.

He had a special way of “brightening the day” and making others smile.

Tim was truly a sensitive, caring and gentle man who loved his family and his many friends.

He was predeceased by his father, Dr. James Grant; mother, Frances D. Grant; brother, Jamie Grant; and nephew, Shamus Heagerty.

  1. I have a thousand memories of our fellow comrade, Tim, who was the second keyboard player for Pegasus. I will never forget the legendary gigs at “The Bank,” in Cortland, NY. Also, he was one of the funniest people on this earth, we knick-named him “Hee Haw” Grant.
    His great early band, T.G & The Nightriders were a tremendous inspiration to all of us aspiring musicians back in the day. Their gigs at Oswego Catholic High, of all places, were truly wonderful.
    May his soul be at peace and soar to the heights of all possibilities.

  2. Lisa, Elaina, Brian and all of Tim’s family, we are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you
