Grant Robert Ballantine passed away tragically on February 4, 2021, in a house fire in La Broquerie, MB. He is survived by one sister Vicki, Puslinch, ON; two brothers, Murray (Clara) and nephews Ian and Jamie, Ottawa, ON and Ross (Cathy) and family (David Fehr and Chris Fehr and their families), Pilot Mound, MB; sister-in-law Maureen Robinson and niece Tracy Robinson (Jeremy Janz) and family of BC.
Grant was predeceased by his parents John 'Ralph' and Jean (Simpson) Ballantine, stepmother Alice (Robinson) and stepbrother Bill Robinson.
Grant was born August 24, 1954 in Crystal City, MB, grew up on the family farm and attended school in Glenora, Marringhurst, Pilot Mound and obtained his Diesel Mechanic License at Red River Community College. He worked at Mazer Equipment in Brandon, Pilot Mound Farm Machinery Co-op, G. Sterling Implements in Pilot Mound, and then in Killarney with JI Case. In 1989, he relocated to Steinbach, MB to work as Parts Manager for Case Power & Equipment which transitioned over the years to Red River Equipment, Chabot Equipment and finally Rocky Mountain Equipment. He retired in January, 2017. Grant had many good friends all around the province who he enjoyed spending time with while playing Belgian Bowling, Bein (cards) and darts at La Broquerie Hotel. Grant lived in La Broquerie for the last 19 years and really enjoyed living there. He was an avid reader and had a terrific memory which benefited him and his many farm equipment parts customers with whom he had special friendships and for whom he worked extremely hard to ensure they were looked after!
