Lenward Evans Gravette was my grandfather. He died when my mom was a young girl. I know had served in the U.S. Navy. He was married to Lillie Mae Alexander Gravette. They had 5 children - John Wayne Gravette, Ricky Gravette, Gail Gravette Stewart, Linden Gravette, and Shelia Gravette Mims. Lenward was died after being hit and dragged by a car down just down the street from his residence.
