Courtney Granger Death – Obituary News: master fiddler and extraordinarily talented singer has died .
We are sad to report that master fiddler and extraordinarily talented singer , Courtney Granger of Lafayette, has passed away, according to the following statements posted on social media on September 19. 2021.
Wilson Savoy 3h · Our dear, wonderful friend of nearly my entire life, COURTNEY GRANGER, passed away this morning at age 39. There is so much to say, but I’m processing this news slowly.. He played with Pine Leaf Boys until about a year ago when his health deteriorated to the point where he had to go on dialysis 3 times per week. They think the cause of death was some kind of blood clot, but more info will be revealed. The funeral details will be posted shortly, but I hear it will be at Quirk’s in Eunice on Monday. His father, Ken, called to tell me and asked for help with funeral costs from the community. I set it up under my name; anything donated will be forwarded to Ken.

My heart is broken. My dear friend, one of my mentors that took me under his wing when I first started playing fiddle, and my musical brother Courtney Granger, has passed away this morning at the age of 39. I always loved getting to hang out and spend time with Courtney when I could. He will be at Quirk’s Funeral Home in Eunice Monday. Visitation for the public will be from 4-10 pm, rosary at 10 am Tuesday and funeral will be at 11 am. Courtney, thank you for all the great memories I got to share with you ever since we first met. Rest In Peace my dear friend.Martha Scanlan wrote
