Unhappy Douglas Grant (Eddie the Bully in "The Lunch Money Rip-Off") 1959 - 2018

https://tinyurl.com/y7au68fn

Robert Douglas Grant Jr., departed this life on Sunday, May 27, 2018. He was born in Columbus, Ohio on May 10, 1959. He is predeceased by his parents Claudia (Fleming) Grant, Addie (McCall) and Robert Douglas Grant Sr. Robert was introduced to the wonderful world of the Arts by his aunt Alice Grant, who performed with a multitude of artists such as Pearl Bailey, and Cab Calloway. Robert spent most of his early years as a child actor performing on Broadway in shows such as "Maggie Flynn", "The Me Nobody Knows" on film the "Landlord" and television "The Electric Company" on PBS as well as on episodes of "Good Times" and other series. Following those early years, Robert followed his passion of the arts and graduated from The Ohio State University and attended The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and earned an MFA from the Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia and Rome campus) and spent many years teaching in the New York Public School System. He maintained an art studio and was a long-time member of the artist community at The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center. A portion of Robert's works are featured as part of the permanent collection at The Ohio State University. Robert also followed his other passion for music and was a master on the drums and guitar. He performed most recently with his collaborating partner Debi Ray Chaudhuri as "Brownie Pink" an experimental urban group with urban sounds. Robert was also a member of the Church of Saint Joseph of the Holy Family. Robert leaves to cherish his memory, his devoted wife, Eileen Elizabeth Smith Grant; and brothers, Anthony, Timothy (Marti), David (Carolyn), Christopher (Marcia) Grant; and cousin, Kyle Grant Gibson (Jacki); nephews and nieces, Marissa, Nicholas, Joshua, Jacob, Jon David, Julia Grant and Grant, Kyle Jr. and Kylee Gibson; beloved aunt, Alice Grant (Joseph Russell); and aunts, Delores Grant, Elaine Wallace, Jean Wallace; and uncles, William McCall, Dale Jones (Debra), Billy Jones, Lewis Duckett, Lucius Williams; along with a host of wonderful, loving cousins and dear friends. Robert loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was a peaceful, gentle soul that was slow to anger but quick to laugh, smile and encourage others. He will be missed by all of those whose lives he touched. Robert leaves behind a unique legacy of love and kindness! In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Church of Saint Joseph of the Holy Family Food Pantry in memory of Robert. Interment will be 1 PM at Woodland Cemetery, 118 Woodland Avenue, Dayton, OH 45409 on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 with a repast to follow in Westerville.

Sad news indeed...I had no idea that he had passed away.

Douglas Grant's performance as school bully Eddie in the season two finale "The Lunch Money Rip-Off" was undoubtedly one of the most memorable--and equally unforgettable--guest appearances during "Good Times'" six-season run. Grant also appeared earlier in season two as one of Mad Dog's Satan's Knights, Sweet Pea, in "The Gang: Part 1."

May Douglas Grant rest in peace...he will definitely be missed.

Didn't know he was sick. Wonder what he died of. I remember seeing him in Electric Company, and a couple of other things. RIP Douglass.
