Brendan Grinalds

Brendan Southy Grinalds, loving son and friend, passed away Dec. 29, 2020 at his home in Ft. Worth at the age of 22.

Services will be held at White’s Funeral Home in Springtown, Friday, Jan. 8, 2021 at 2 p.m. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, 2021, also at White’s Funeral Home. Interment will be at Jaybird Cemetery with a reception immediately following at Legacy Church. All are invited to attend the reception, and everyone is encouraged to wear purple, Brendan’s favorite color.

Brendan was born on Jan. 13, 1998 in Ft. Worth to Richard and Tia Grinalds. He was born with a rare genetic disorder and spent much of his childhood at the Scottish Rite Hospital; although he never let his disabilities slow him down. Throughout his youth Brendan participated in many sports, Boy Scouts and band where he played the baritone. In 2016 he graduated from C.F. Brewer High School in Ft. Worth.

Brendan loved all things TCU but he was most passionate about Lone Star Brahmas hockey. He rarely missed a game. His prized possessions were his TCU hockey jersey and hockey stick signed by the entire Brahamas team. He even celebrated his 21st birthday by dropping the ceremonial puck. Brendan truly never met a stranger and was the kindest soul you would ever meet. He was a modernday treasure hunter, always looking for the next find to buy, sell or trade, and he was good at it.

He will always be remembered for his quick wit, one-liners and sarcasm coupled with an infectious smile. He made the most of his 22 years on this earth.

Brendan was preceded in death by his papaw and mamaw, J.B. and Eula Hastings, step-grandfather, Bud Newton, and grandmother, Julie Grinalds.

He is survived by his mother and stepfather Tia and Les Davidson; father and stepmother Richard and Tricia Grinalds; Grand Daddy Leigh Grinalds; grandmother Claudia Newton; girlfriend Kayse Kelley; best friend Kara Smith; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
