William P. Granot March 14, 1929-February 25, 2020
On Tuesday, February 25, 2020, William P. Granot, loving husband and father of two daughters, passed away in his home at the age of 90. Bill was born on March 14, 1929 in the little town of Watonga, Oklahoma to George and Grace Granot. On January 30, 1951, he married Janet Rogers Lancaster and together they raised daughters Cindy and Pam. He received his degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Oklahoma in 1953 and then served his country as a Captain in the Air Force during the Korean War. On return, he worked for Armco Steel, Peeco and Contech in Corpus Christi until he turned 80 in 2009.
Bill loved to work and provided a good life for his family. His favorite words were "How can I help you?" But his true passion in life blossomed with his love and dedication for his wife Janet and their 69 years of marriage. Soulmates, they shared their love and the perils of raising 2 girls while residing for 50 years in the Sparkling City by the Bay.
He is survived by his wife Janet, his daughter and husband, Cindy and Rami Segal, daughter Pam Karter and partner Ann Harris, granddaughter and husband Mica and Rodrigo Segal de la Garza, and grandson and fiance, Jonathan Segal and Tori Hlavaty. The family wishes to thank caregivers Migdalia "Marbi" Cisneros, Leona Thomas, Jackie Tyler and Zahera Andrew for their love and kind care.
