LAKE GEORGE Robert L. Grant, 94, of Lake George died on Monday, April 28, 2008, at Glens Falls Hospital.

He was born Nov. 7, 1913, at home on John Street in Hudson Falls, the son of the late Charles and Fannie (VanTassell) Grant.

He worked for and managed several local A & P Stores starting at the age of 13.
