Missing Grant Sligh





I didn't know Grant Sligh all that well, but I did have the pleasure of working with him on a couple of occasions and having a few cold ones with him many times. It's real sad when a fellow animator passes away at such a young age, and the reason I'm bringing his name up is that I want people to know that he was a real stand up guy. Even though I'm pretty sure he blocked my email at some point, he always had such nice things to say to me, he would always say..."you're still at the lab , eh? well....you could go anywhere you wanted to...you're fucking skilled man.., or was it, "you're foookin' skeeld " . He was fucking skilled. I'll miss you, Grant.

I just found out he died from a friend. Grant was a wiz in flash and my seatmate at work for 4 months. He was so excited when he was looking to buy a "scooteur" he'd show me all of the ones he was considering. I haven't seen Grant in a few years, but he'll be missed.
