Robert David Grimes: 1938 - 2012

We lost a very dear friend on Aug 14, 2012 and no words can express the feelings that we all had for David, he was a man that everyone loved.

For those who knew David, he was always "Grimey" or "The Old Man". Grimey was always the person you could count on, he was always there to offer a tool, the first to offer a ice cold Bud out of the back of his truck, or the first to cook up a meal for his "family". David was more than a friend to many, he was part of our families and he will be missed!

David, we hope that your happy, sailing somewhere towards the sunset on SlowPoke, reading you book.

Farewell Our Friend, You will never be Forgotten!
