Grant Thomas Renfro, 36, went to sleep on his sofa with his precious Boston Terrier ,Jada, lying on his chest and woke up in the arms of GOD in Heaven feeling no pain on June 27, 2020. Grant was diagnosed two years ago with acute congestive heart failure. He was a 2001 graduate of Science Hill High School and a 2012 graduate of Keiser University College of Golf Management. He was the owner of Mountain View Motors in Greer, SC . He had resided for the past eight years in the Greeneville/Greer, SC area. Grant was a native of Johnson City, TN and a lifelong member of Central Baptist Church. Grant loved and was loved by all who were fortunate enough to have known him. He never met a stranger. He enjoyed teaching and playing golf, collecting and selling cars, college football, music, and was always reaching out to others who were less fortunate than he. He had a heart as big as all outdoors. Left to cherish his memory are his parents Allan and Janet Renfro, his grandmother Eula Tipton, his uncle Jeff Renfro, uncle Greg Tipton (Joan) Cousins Alex Renfro(Lara), Johnathan Renfro (Megan), Christie Renfro Burroughs (Steve), Jennifer Tipton Arbo (Patrick), Amanda Tipton Coffie (Seth) and a host of extended great aunts, uncles and cousins.
