House Democratic Caucus Chair Bill Grant loses battle with lung cancer

Grievous news today:

Rep. Bill Grant succumbed this morning to lung cancer he was diagnosed with just a month ago.

Grant died at Providence St. Mary Medical Center, surrounded by his family, sources say.

A Walla Walla native, Grant was re-elected in November to serve for the 16th Legislative District, which covers all of Walla Walla and Columbia counties, as well as parts of Benton and Franklin counties. He served for 22 years.

A fourth generation wheat farmer, Grant also served his fellow House Democrats as part of their leadership team; he was Caucus Chair. His two plus decades of service in the House make him one of the longest-serving legislators in state history. He was a knowledgeable and spirited public servant.

He will be greatly missed.

We at NPI extend our condolences to Representative Grant's family and friends, especially his children and legislative staff.

Whoever succeeds Representative Grant will have big shoes to fill.
