Grant Rhodes Huffines Solomon obit

Grant Rhodes Huffines Solomon, age 18, of Franklin, Tenn., went to be with God on July 20, 2020, from injuries sustained in a single vehicle accident. 

Grant was a rising senior at Grace Christian Academy, where he’s been a student since third grade. 

Grant walked boldly for Jesus. His smile lit up every room he entered. Grant was known for being a fiercely competitive athlete, an engaged scholar, and a true friend to everyone he encountered. With a strong sense of family, he took extra care of his little sister and mom.
