Grantsville dedicates roads to fallen veterans

Grantsville City crews spent the week before Veteran’s Day taking down old cemetery signs and replacing them with new signs dedicated to fallen veterans from Grantsville.

Crews began putting up signs at the first of the month and the last of the signs were installed Nov. 10 just in time for the holiday.

The decision to rename the streets was made by Grantsville City Mayor Neil Critchlow.

“We wanted to honor veterans from Grantsville who we’ve lost,” he said.

Grantsville officials will host a ceremony for the fallen veteran’s families to dedicate the new roads later this month.

Veterans honored included: Peter Richard Anderson, James C. Bagan, Andrew Paul Barrus, Arthur C. Bates, Arnold Lee Bolinder, Jordan Matthew Byrd, Garth Tanner Erickson, John S. Judd, Richard Craig Johnson, Holmes Kizer, Phares P. Matthews, Lyle Thomas Moore, John Russell Oakey, Jason Clint Price, James J. Williams, and Joseph R. Wooley.
