<div itemprop="description">Denver Bancroft Grant was born January 4th, 1944 in Negril, Jamaica to very proud parents Albert and Beatrice Grant. At the age of 9, Denver arrived in London, England where he spent the remainder of his childhood and received his education. In 1974, Denver and his family moved permanently to Ontario, Canada. <br /> <br />Denver is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Devon (Yvonne). They were married in St. Giles Church, Camberwell, London, England on July 30th, 1966. <br /> <br />Denver will be forever remembered by his wife Yvonne, his son Colin, his two daughters Samantha and Karen, Karen&rsquo;s fianc&eacute; Jeff Clemens, his mother Beatrice, his brother Carl, his sister-in-law Merva, his two nieces Deborah and Nicola, and his grandnephew Matthew. <br /> <br />Denver was an Associate Minister and Evangelist at Pilgrim Church of the Firstborn for over 30 years. He served in many capacities during his time there and remained committed to ministering to various communities and being involved with several ministries. He will be greatly missed by Rev. Dr. Gene Archer and the congregation. <br /> <br />By profession, Denver was an accountant. He worked at Sara Lee Canada for many years before retiring in 2012. He was a valued member of the Senior Executive Management team where he, during his long tenure with the company, was the Financial Controller and Corporate Secretary. Additionally, he was the Global Business Practice Officer and co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for Sara Lee worldwide. <br /> <br />Denver loved listening to gospel and classical music, playing the guitar, reading books and watching CNN and BBC. <br /> <br />Most importantly, Denver served the Lord for over 60 years and loved sharing the Word of God with those around him. Denver touched the lives of many people with his sense of humour and impeccable style. Those who knew him will miss his unshakeable, uncompromising and unyielding strength to the Lord&rsquo;s service and his love of family. <br /> <br />Donations can be made to either of Denver's two favourite charities: SickKids or World Vision. <br /></div>
