CSU student Andrew Grant died Wednesday morning of a suicide.
Grant, a technical journalism major who would have been a junior this fall, went to Smoky Hill High School in Aurora and wanted to work in public relations when he graduated.
“(He was) excited about his future last we talked to him,” said Nancy Grant, Andrew Grant’s mother. “This was so shocking.”
Nancy Grant said her son was fond of water sports, especially scuba diving, and was a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He is survived by his mother, his father David Grant and his sister Amy Grant, who graduated from CSU in 2002.
“He was a diligent student, worked hard, maintained good grades, enjoyed sports,” said Nancy Grant, who described Andrew Grant as “a very kind, good-natured, good-hearted person.”
Memorial services for Andrew Grant will be held at 4 p.m. this Tuesday at Horan & McConaty funeral home, 3201 S. Parker Rd., in Aurora. Nancy Grant said anyone is welcome to come.
