Obituary
Raymond A. Grandstaff
1923 - 2015

Raymond Archart Grandstaff, 92, of Scottsville, passed away Thursday, December 24, 2015 at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA.

He was born on September 27, 1923, in Mount Jackson, Virginia, the son of Thomas Lee and Clara (Archart) Grandstaff.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by the love of his life, the late Mary (Crawford) Grandstaff, and five brothers, Thomas, James, Henry, Charles, and Paul.

Mr. Grandstaff retired from the former Uniroyal Tire Factory in Scottsville after over 40 years of service.  He was a proud World War II Veteran, having served his country in the U.S. Army.  He was a member of Fox Memorial Baptist Church, the Scottsville VFW Post 8169, and the Collinswood Community Center.  Raymond will be remembered for his love of gardening and his willingness to help others in need.

Survivors include three children, Raymond J. Grandstaff (Helen), Mary Lee Lewis (Roy) and Joyce Jones; his dear friend and care giver, Margaret Tooley; five grandchildren, Cliff Lewis, Angela Grandstaff, Michael Grandstaff, and Keith and Kevin Jones; four great-grandchildren and Alex Wiese, whom he treated like one of his grandchildren; a number of nieces and nephews, and a host of extended family and friends.

A funeral service will be conducted at 3:00 PM, Wednesday, December 30, 2015, at Fox Memorial Baptist Church by Pastors Randy Golladay and Buddy Woodson.  Internment will follow in Fluvanna Baptist Church Cemetery.
