GRANT HAMILTON BELDING, born in Houston on July 28, 1980, passed away in Houston on April 27, 2009, at the age of 28.

Grant contracted a rare autoimmune disease at age 12 which contributed to debilitating health consequences thereafter, including renal failure at age 22. Grant consistently displayed courage and good humor in spite of chronic health issues.

Grant was a masterful storyteller. He wrote, produced and directed three short films during his college experience in Los Angeles. Grant had a passion for golf and spent much of his youth on the course with friends and his dad.

Grant was blessed with special friendships and support from numerous people wherever he lived including many life long family friends, his much loved "Small Group" at Ecclesia Church in Houston, friends from Los Angeles where he attended college, as well as those from earlier school days.

Grant is survived by his parents, Nancy M. Belding and David H. Belding who reside in Houston. Additionally, Grant is survived by his grandparents, Charles and Mildred Matheny of Granite, Oklahoma and Virginia H. Belding of Marble Falls, Texas; aunts and uncles, Jerry and Elaine Gibson of Santa Barbara, California, Tom and Jody Belding of Roswell, New Mexico, and Melanie Belding of Stephenville, Texas.

Around 2000, Grant and I were students at Santa Monica College. I helped him on two short films and I had a tremendous time helping him. I have been trying to find him for years, but I was unable to do so. I am sad to know that he passed away over a year ago. He will be missed.

Nancy, I look at the pictures and it is like looking at Scott. Our sons were close friends back in the days of Grace School. The converse sneakers was a big hit with both! It is uncanny to me how much the boys obviously continued to look alike. Remember how they both would cry over a child's meal? No way, for either of them after age 3! Grant was the first friend Scott had who enjoyed food as much as he.

Grant and I were great friends at University of Houston. I was trying to look him up on facebook when I found out this sad news. He was a great friend to me for a long time. I have never met anyone else quite like him. He was the most unique and wonderful person and I will truly miss him.
