William Langley Granbery ’43

Published in Apr. 24, 2002, issue

Red died Mar. 12, 2001, in Cincinnati, days shy of his 81st birthday.

He grew up in Nashville, Tenn., and attended Montgomery Bell Academy. Following a prep school year at Hun, Red entered Princeton with the class.

His education was interrupted by WWII. A bombadier-navigator on B-24s, he was shot down during a mission over Europe and was held in various German prison camps for almost a year. Red's business career included stints in banking, Ingram Oil, and a stock brokerage firm. He was a fine golfer, winning many local and club championships, and was also an ardent fisherman.

Survivors include his wife, Anne; three sons, William Jr., Horace, and James; a daughter, Elizabeth Dingess; and 13 grandchildren. To the entire family, we extend our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
