Golan H. Lurvey III, 49,

Golan H. “JR” Lurvey III passed away peacefully on Nov. 1, 2009, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
JR was born on April 12, 1960, in Granville, the son of Golan and Betty (Donnelly) Lurvey.
JR attended Pawlet (Vt.) Elementary School and Granville Central School. JR enjoyed hunting and fishing in his spare time. But his love of work didn’t leave him with much “spare time.”
Self-employed most of his adult life, he owned  LURV Builders. Examples of his work can be seen in many  businesses throughout New York and Vermont, some of which are the former Granville village offices on the corner of Main and North streets, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion in Granville  and The Forum of Granville, to name but a few. These were all in addition to numerous private homes throughout the Mettowee Valley.  He enjoyed all aspects of the construction business. He was a master when it came to installing Sheetrock. His pride and satisfaction at a job well done were key in his aspiration to be well known and successful in his chosen profession. 
On Sept. 13, 2009, JR was saved at the Mettawee Valley Church in West Pawlet, Vt.
He is survived by his parents of Danby, Vt., and his children Golan Lurvey IV and his wife, Nicole, of Middle Granville, and Ashley Kinneer and her husband, Matt, of Portland Ore. In addition he is survived by his siblings Alice Ricard and husband David Sr. of West Pawlet, T. (Tina) Michal Lurvey and wife Brenda of New Hampshire, Teri White and husband Johnny of Danby, Tammy White and husband Clifford of Dille, W.Va., Shane Lurvey of Myrtle Beach, S.C., as well as his grandchildren Brody Lurvey, Leighann, Rebecca, Faith, and Jonathon Petty, all of the Granville area, as well as a special young lady that JR considered a daughter, Kelsey. Survivors also include many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
A funeral service was held on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the Mettawee Valley Church in West Pawlet with the Rev. Lyandon Warren officiating.  Calling hours were held Tuesday at the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville.
In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorials take the form of contributions to the Golan Lurvey III Benefit Fund, c/o of Glens Falls National Bank, Granville Branch , 8646 State Route 22, Granville, N.Y. 12832.
