Meet Mr. Douglas Grant of Barnes Hill!!

Antigua and Barbuda’s NEWEST CENTENARIAN!!

Malcolm’s profession was a businessman where he owned and operated heavy duty machinery i.e. tractors, trucks, haulage equipment. He ultimately retired in 1980. However, prior to his business enterprises, Malcolm was engaged in a number of
private sector farming activities on his parent’s farm in Bathlodge.

He later gained employment at the United States’ Air Force Base in Coolidge where he was a heavy duty operator. On leaving the American Base, he sought employment at the Antigua
Syndicate Estate Company, where he was employed as a Tractor operator; he worked in excess of twenty years. In 1958, he was advised by his father in law, the late Hercules Carty of Barbuda, to invest in tractors. This was a successful endeavour where he
cultivated lands at Coconut Hall, Parham Lodge, Longford as well as other agricultural areas within Antigua and Barbuda.

Throughout his career, Douglas Malcolm Grant aka
Manny was considered to be the best tractor operator in particular the preparation of agricultural lands. During that business enterprise he trained a number of young men in the community in the area of tractor maintenance and operation.

Malcolm Grant was married to the late Nurse Ina May-Carty
Grant and that union produced five children.

He is a member of the Greenbay Moravian Church!

  4. Congratulations Mr. Douglas Grant on your 100 years of excellence! I salute you for being a Living Legend and a model Antiguan & Barbudan for the youths. “Those who learn must teach.”
    You apprenticed with your parents on their agricultural farm, gained knowledge and hands-on experiences of the operations and maintenance of heavy mechanical equipment and tools through employment. And then you became a successful self-employed businessman, an entrepreneur, a family man with offsprings. In your life, you had the right support structure and so you “cast down (your) bucket” in Antigua.
    “A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

    HEALTH CRISIS, yesterday, today and tomorrow! It’s time for all of us to act to improve our health and strengthen our human immune system.
    The venerable Centenarian- members of Living Legends from life’s experiences in historical context, say to all of us, especially the youths, simply:
    Develop a Culture of Health. EAT BETTER and EXERCISE MORE so that we can all TAKE CONTROL OF OUR HEALTH and be better together.
    Plant, Eat, and Trade-PET action!-fresh Fruits and Vegetables.
    Grow Herbs in the garden and use them.

    “The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth, and he that is wise will not abhor them.”
    “You are what you eat.”
    “Health is Wealth. Wealth is not Health.”

    Blessings!
