James Matthew "Matt" Grandstaff

d. September 18, 2018

ATKINS, Va. JAMES MATTHEW "MATT" GRANDSTAFF, age 48, passed away Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at his home. Matt was a loving son, brother, father, "poppy" and friend to many. He loved anything that included hunting or shooting. He loved to work and was the proud owner of Grandstaff Tile. Matt was a good man, but the best thing he ever did was accept Jesus Christ as his Savior just a few weeks before he passed. He was a member of Connect Church in Chilhowie where his uncle Mark is the Pastor. He used these last weeks to make things right with many folks. Matt is now at the truest peace. He was preceded in death by his father, James Franklin Grandstaff; grandparents, Marvin and Virginia Totten; and his faithful four-legged friends, JJ, Baby Girl, and George.
