Jeffrey Tyrone Granville was born February 15, 1965, to Bishop Samuel and Narmie Granville. As a child, his nickname was “Chief”. He was the third son of the Granville family. He was a very obedient son. When he was a child, he had several toys that encouraged him to work with his hands, and he loved it. He also enjoyed watching his dad work on the car, and Jeffrey would use his toys to imitate his dad and pretend he was working on his car.
Jeffrey was a very good son and never gave his parents no trouble at all. Jeffrey was baptized in Jesus’ name when he was a child. As he grew older, he watched his mother play the organ and noticed she was getting tired; his desire was to help and assist in being the musician. He was blessed to learn how to play the piano, organ, keyboard, and the drums. Jeffrey loved the Lord, he loved singing and playing for the Lord, and Ministering to people. Jeffrey loved Sunday School and was very enthusiastic in learning the word of God. He did not shy away from teaching Sunday School when called upon.
He was one that was always busy working with his hands, he was smart, creative, and whatever he worked on, he tried to do with perfection. Jeffrey attended and graduated from East High School where he sang in the choir, played football, and enjoyed trades, such as commercials arts. He was an active and faithful member of Emmanuel Temple Pentecostal Church where he helped his dad in the ministry until his dad retired from pastoring in April of 2021.
The Granville family returned to their home church “Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ” where Jeffrey served as one of the musicians.
Jeffrey worked at various companies such as, Rent-A-Center, Aaron Rentals, Fed Ex, and Beasley & Associates. His passion was working as a carpenter, remodeling homes, and fixing and upgrading sanctuaries of various churches. Jeffrey had many clients and he loved transforming homes and making them beautiful. His favorite clothing was Nike apparel, and wearing his cowboy hats and boots! Jeffrey was a people person and he loved to talk to people. He had a smile that was contagious. Whenever he laughed or smiled, you could not help but laugh, too.
Jeffrey met his wife Beatrice in 1992. They were joined in matrimony on May 20, 2000 and they were deeply in love. God blessed this union for 22 years until his passing.
