Grant Christopher McCann was born April 3rd, 1981 to Greg and Diana McCann in Yankton, SD. He graduated from Bon Homme High School in 1999 and attended the University of Minnesota at Morris. He moved to California in 2001 where he attended the College of San Mateo and San Francisco State University while working for Radio Shack and Sony. Grant returned to SD in 2008 to help develop the Cogan House, RV Park, and Dakota Custom Hunt and all aspects of the farm.
Grant’s untimely death occurred while working on the farm.
He was preceded in death by his mother Diana, paternal grandfather Gordon McCann, and his maternal grandparents Ralph and Rosina Yager.
Grant is survived by his father Greg, his sister, Holly, his girlfriend Melissa, his grandmother Lornie, and many Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and friends.
A fuller account of Grant’s life will be shared in his Eulogy.
Dear McCann family - I am SO SORRY for your loss. I loved working with your family in the tourism industry and when I got to do a story on you all for Living Here Magazine. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear McCann Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose someone you love, especially unexpectedly. But death is not God's purpose for us. At Revelation 21:4:"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God promises to reunite us with our loved ones here on earth by means of the resurrection hope. In the meantime may the "God of all comfort" give you the strength needed to endure.

Grants Grandma Lornnie McCann is my God Mother. I only knew Grant from the few times I was introduced to him in Springfield. My older children was Grants age and knew him better. I'm sorry for your loss. May God Watch Over Your Family Today and All Days. Amen

Holly and family, Knowing Grant in high school, he was always so polite and kind. I'll miss seeing him around. Words can not ease the pain so I will pray for your comfort and peace at this time. Remember our Lord's promise of Eternal Life and we will be reunited with Grant.
