It is with great sadness we share the news, the loss of our devoted husband, father, son, brother, grandfather and friend. Grant Alan Rezansoff 58, of Red Wing was born March 3, 1961 and passed away at his home on Saturday February 22, 2020.
Grant grew up watching, playing and coaching the game he loved; hockey. A retired professional hockey player, Grant played Junior Hockey for the Victoria Cougars of the Western Hockey League, signed a contract with the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League and became a marquee player of the International and Central Hockey Leagues where he earned multiple all-star honors during his hockey career. After leaving the IHL, Grant played two years in a European League in Germany and later went on to coach numerous teams in the Red Wing Youth Hockey organization. Some of Grant’s fondest memories was time spent with friends and family at the Rezansoff cabin at Jewel Lake and cheering on his favorite football team the Seattle Seahawks where he fully embraced the embodiment of the 12th man!
Grant will remain in the hearts and loved forever by his wife of 32 years, Kelly of Red Wing; children Kelsy (Kevin) Colbeth of Cottage Grove, MN, Alex Rezansoff of Red Wing, MN; mother Daphne Rezansoff of Surrey, British Columbia Canada; sister Dawn (Cliff) Miller of Surrey, BC; brothers Dale Rezansoff of White Rock, BC, Aaron (LaVerne) Rezansoff of Langley, BC; granddaughter Aubrey Colbeth; father-in-law and mother-in-law Cletis and Georgianna Groce of LaBelle, FL; sister-in-law Lessia Groce of LaBelle FL; and many cherished nieces, nephews, other dear relatives and friends. He will be greatly missed by his dogs Sawyer Brown and Ali John Friedrich, which he adored and loved deeply. Grant was preceded in death by his father George Rezansoff.
