LADSON, SC (WCSC) -

Vendors at the Ladson Exchange Park Flea Market honored the memory of a vendor who was shot and killed.

Stephen Grant Jr., 34, died Wednesday from a gunshot wound he received on Hanover Street.

Office workers at the flea market said Grant was a long-time vendor at the park.

“He was out here for seven or eight years,” said Kelvin Pringle, a neighboring vendor. “I actually bought this spot next to me [his spot], so we could do a little remembrance thing.”

Sunday Grant’s cousin was out laying t-shirts on the table with a picture of Grant and the hashtag #SteveoGForever.

“It’s really hard not hearing his laughter or his smile,” Pringle said. “The customers loved him.”

Grant sold essential oils, shea butter, and natural soap products at his booth on the fairgrounds. The name of his company was “Straight Up Natural”.

“He was indescribable,” said Travis Goodwin, Grant’s cousin. “He was an all-around good person.”

Goodwin said Grant never missed a Saturday at the flea market. Now with this weekend being the first of many, family and friends are trying to keep his memory alive.

“He was a real humble guy,” Pringle said. “They killed a great dude.”

Pringle adds Grant was a family man, a father of three children who he loved, and a husband.

Grant’s funeral is set for Monday, September 19 at 11 a.m. at New Tabernacle Fourth Baptist Church in Charleston.
