Philip R. Grannan, 85, of Washington, Indiana, passed away July 12, 2022. He was born in Washington, Indiana, on August 27, 1936, to Paul and Mildred (Raney) Grannan. On August 4, 1962, Philip married the love of his life, Sharon Webber of Washington, Indiana, and she survives.

During their nearly sixty years of marriage, Philip and Sharon created a loving home for each other and their two sons: Paul Eric (Cheryl) Grannan of Centerville, Ohio and Kurt Allen (Brenda) Grannan of Cincinnati, Ohio. Known to be a devoted family man, Philip eagerly awaited and welcomed four beloved grandchildren: Nicholas, Julia, Cole and Ava.

Philip served his country honorably in the United States Air Force.

Additionally, Philip was a member of the St. Charles Catholic Church and the American Legion in Lima, Ohio.

Philip enjoyed many things in life, but, most of all, he loved his family.
