Matthew A. Gran, actor-comedian

Matthew Allen Gran was an actor, a comedian and a chemist who left a legacy of laughter when he died at 9 a.m. Saturday at his Bellevue home.

He was 46 and had struggled in recent years with a heart condition and a lifelong blood condition. But he had become a master of rallying, pushing back problems to share his talents, said friend and comedy partner Ric Young of Cincinnati.

Mr. Gran was a volunteer for the Radio Reading Services for the blind.

He played Jacob Marley in the 1990 Cincinnati Children's Theater production of "A Christmas Carol" and performed in "1776" on the Showboat Majestic in 1991. His last performance was at Boo-Fest at Cincinnati's Union Terminal in 1995.

Mr. Gran was a graduate of Northern Kentucky University, where he majored in theater and chemistry. He was a research chemist at Procter & Gamble and received recognition for his part in developing liquid Tide, said his mother, Dorothy Tucker Gran of Bellevue.

He left P&G and held a series of part-time jobs while pursuing his love of theater. "He told me once that the most important thing to him was making people laugh," said Young.

"He could tell a story that would put you on the floor with tears in your eyes. Basically, the stories were all things that happened to him. He had the worst luck and turned it into stories that got better and better," Young said.

"He loved to entertain and he was very bright."

Early in his career, Mr. Gran played Judas in the off-Broadway production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and later played Judas in "Godspell," said Young.

He was a member of the Drama Workshop and the Dreamweavers Storybook Theater Co., which performed folk tales, legends and original stories. Mr. Gran performed with the group in the 1980s but dropped out of theater for two years after suffering a heart attack, Young said.

In 1990, he and Mr. Gran worked together with Day Weavers, writing and recording comedy. In 1992, Mr. Gran, Young and Mike Wood formed UH-OH! a comedy team that played at clubs from Louisville to Cincinnati. They recorded a comedy tape in 1996.

Mr. Gran also was a tennis player and was skilled at set design and lighting.

He was hospitalized several times this fall. "He used his humor to deal with it, but you could tell he was hurting inside," Young said.

In addition to his mother, survivors include sisters, Mary Ellen Gran McDaniel of Taylor Mill and Marsha Gran of Dayton; and a brother, Mark Gran of Bellevue.

Mass of Christian burial will be at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at St. Anthony Church. Visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Dobbling Funeral Home, Bellevue. Burial will be in St. Stephen Cemetery, Ft. Thomas. Memorials are suggested to St. Anthony Church, 320 Poplar St., Bellevue, Ky. 41016.
