John Paul Alonzo Granger, age 22 of Piedmont South Carolina passed away peacefully the morning of May 26th 2020 after a long battle with Covid-19.
John Paul was born January 12th, 1998 in Marion, Ohio to Paul and Laura Granger.
JP as he was called by his family loved life and made it his life’s mission to help others. This was made evident by the path that he chose for himself. After graduating from Powdersville High School, he started driving for an ambulance company in Greenville, South Carolina and then worked his way to becoming an EMT. His compassion for those in need is a testament to his kind and caring spirit. His motto became “I gave Up My Life to Learn How to Save Yours”. And indeed, that is what he did. Never thinking of himself and always thinking of others. That is the life that John Paul lived!
In his free time JP loved to go boating, take flying lessons and was an excellent cook. He had a passion for his gaming computer and hanging out with his close friends. He loved his rescue dog “Shadow” and would spend countless hours throwing the ball with her. He had a smile that would light up any room and he was a supreme jokester. In a word JP was genuine.
He loved his family so much and was loved by all. What a fitting way to live your life. His kind spirit will live on forever and the mark that he left on this world will never be erased.
The family offers sincere and heartfelt thanks for the outpouring of prayers and kind words during this most difficult time.
A celebration of life will be held Thursday, June 4, 2020 from 5pm to 7pm, at Palmetto Mortuary.
