Born February 23, 1920, in Logansport, he was the son of the late Roy A. and Hazel E. (Siddall) Grantham.

Roy served in the U.S. Army as a field officer during World War II along with four of his brothers.
He was a member of American Legion Post 60.

Roy was a farmer, raising sheep, poultry and cattle. He also raised horses. In earlier years, he rode horses in rodeos. Roy had several dogs throughout his life but his most recent canines kept himcompany – G.T. and Snowball – who was a gift from the Cass County Humane Society and the CassArea Transit last Christmas.
