April 5, 2000 - October 21, 2020
Grant Kloosterman, 20, of Johnson City, went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at his home. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Sylvia Leonard and his great-aunt Kay Courter. Grant is survived by his parents, Russell and Mary Kloosterman; sisters, Helena Kloosterman, Erica Kloosterman and fiancé Brad Austin; brother, Henry Kloosterman; niece, Odessa Austin; nephew Brazahn Austin; and special nephew, Oziah Austin; maternal great grandmother, Mary Carrier, maternal grandfather, Freddie Leonard; paternal grandparents, Fred and Cheryl Kloosterman; maternal uncle, Lenny Leonard; maternal aunt, Donna Leonard; paternal uncles, Jim Kloosterman and wife Shannon, John Kloosterman and wife Michele, Freddie Kloosterman and wife Regina; along with several cousins and many friends. Grant was born and baptized on April 5, 2000. As a young teenager, Grant was confirmed as a member of Living Word Lutheran Church where he regularly received God’s Means of Grace. God took his time when he created Grant. He loved God, his family, and everyone he met. So full of joy, always smiling, always witnessing, with a joyful laugh. He was a redeemed child of God, a son, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a grandson, and most importantly a friend to everyone he met. Grant never knew a stranger. Always wanting to give to and take care of those around him. Grant loved his job with the Graham Construction family. He worked hard and loved everyone even harder. He could tell you facts you would not even know and could build anything. He didn’t even want the directions. His pride and joy was his nephew Oziah. Grant was not only a great uncle but was also his nephew's coach, not just in boxing, but also in life. Grant was put on this earth to spread the love of Christ and he impacted those in his life in such a positive manner. He was taken too soon, but we know God has taken Grant home and we rest knowing that we will be with him again one day in Heaven, and in peace. We also know Grant will be able to introduce us to everyone up there in Heaven because as we stated earlier, he never knew a stranger. He graduated high school from Home Life Academy in 2018. Grant enjoyed everything in life but especially boxing, caving, hiking, camping, carpentry and spending time with those he loved.
