Remembering Executive Director Grant Ferron
It is with incredibly heavy hearts that we share the devastating news that Kin Canada’s Executive Director (ED), Grant Ferron, passed away surrounded by family on June 6, 2022, in London, Ontario. His impact on our membership, staff team, and our Association as a whole is undeniable, and this tremendous loss to Kin is felt deeply from coast to coast.
Grant started the ED role in 2015 and brought energy, passion, humour, and many BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) to the National Board of Directors and Kin Canada Operations teams. He always thought outside the box and was never completely “off the clock”. His entrepreneurial mind was constantly turning about how to advance Kin Canada. He would often find sparks of inspiration in movies, tv shows, books, and even conversations with strangers that he could later apply to Kin.
Grant also had a passion for developing others and loved watching them succeed. One of the accomplishments he was most proud of during his time with Kin Canada was helping Governors, District Council members, Committee Members, and Operations staff develop as leaders. He was also dedicated to education and was the driving force behind the development of rewarding learning opportunities for all Kin members.
Grant often shared about finding fulfillment and inspiration from his interactions with Kin members from across the country. He took a genuine interest in everyone he met in his travels, and made deep connections with many people who would become his lifelong friends. He was exceptionally proud to be part of the Family of Kin, and was not shy to share publicly how much he loved the work he got to do.
While we are deeply saddened by Grant’s passing, we find peace knowing that he is now at rest. We also know that his work and legacy is continued by the many Kin he inspired, influenced, or impacted in his seven years with our Association.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Marie, daughters Courtney and Maegan, and all Kin who had the pleasure of knowing Grant.
Happy to meet. Sorry to part. Happy to meet again.
