Everyone wishing to pay their respects to the great Ed Grant, the legendary track and field journalist and historian who passed away earlier this month, can do so on Sunday, May 16, and Monday, May 17 when a visitation and funeral will be held.
In 2018, Grant was a member of the inaugural class of the National High School Track & Field Hall of Fame inducted in 2018, and has been inducted into just about every Track and Field Hall of Fame there is, and has received the highest awards possible for his passionate coverage of the sport.
Among many of his remarkable accomplishments, Grant attended the Penn Relays 74 straight years from 1946 through 2019, a streak that will likely never be broken!
There never has been, nor will there ever will be anyone like Grant. Without him, there wouldn't be any history of the sport in NJ. Ed Grant is irreplaceable, and will always be a New Jersey treasure!
