Jan. 18, 1936 — Dec. 31, 2019

Grant Bruce Shomler, 83, of Paso Robles, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019, at his home.  

He was born Jan. 18, 1936, in Glendale, Calif.

He was married to his wife, Sandra, for 43 years. He loved reading, gardening, cooking, especially barbecues and loved having people over.

He earned his MBA at USC in 1964 and worked in the photographic industry, which allowed him to travel to many parts of the world. He retired in 1990. 

With his wife, Sandra, they founded Sycamore Herb Farm in 1989 and owned and operated it until 2013. Keeping the herb farm on course, kept him pretty busy and out of trouble.

He is survived by his wife, Sandra; step-children, Kelli McGrady and Greg McBride; and grandchildren, Connie Keathley, Greg McBride Jr., Jessica Bolstad and Sara McGrady.

He was preceded in death by his daughters, Stacy Bryant and Holly Paul.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in his memory to Central Coast Hospice, 253 Granada Ave., Ste. D, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.

Arrangements were entrusted to Eddington Funeral Services, 429 Bassett St., King City, 831-385-5400, EFS-Cares.com.
