The Paul Grannan Fund

Born in 1943, Paul Grannan was the youngest son of the late Sir Richmond Louis Grannan (he was knighted by the Pope as a knight of St. Gregory for his service to church and community) and the late Elizabeth Margaret Gorman.

In the seventies, Paul launched his career in the restaurant business with Pier One and became Saint John's premier restaurateur with Grannans, Mexicali Rosa's, Il Fornello, Churchills, The Church St. Steakhouse, the Water Street Dinner Theatre and Steamers.  In recognition of his outstanding efforts, he was honoured posthumously with the Greater Saint John 2001 Tourism Award.

A loyal friend, Paul's ability to get along well with people and his positive attitude were qualities that many cherish and remember. Paul's philosophy of life can be summed up in Janis' words, "Some people exist.  Some people live.  Others live life to the fullest."
