Mr. Jan Grimes: Obituary


Jan Grimes, 84, passed away Saturday November 25, 2017 and is now at peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father, Jesus.

Jan was preceded in death by his parents, Dewey and Ione Grimes and brothers Dale and Gary Grimes. He loved helping other people, especially people who served our community such as firemen, policemen, and anyone working in public service. Jan wrote many articles in the newspaper trying to help them under the name of “The Simple Man”. He is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge with his special dogs, Lil Bit and Max….wish they had visiting hours at the Rainbow Bridge.

Surviving are his wife, Kay Grimes; daughters, Cindy Grimes, Michelle and her husband Dean Fredriksen; granddaughters (who meant the world to him), Kristen, Kelsey and her husband Mauro; a very very special sister Jill and her husband Ken Beck; several nieces and nephews; special friends, Joe Wilkinson, John Schwartz, Tom Berry, David Martin, Weldon Sheriff, Tom Deal and many many more.

A graveside service is planned for Jan within the next few weeks at the cemetery in Oliver Springs, Tennessee.
Condolences may be expressed at
Bearden Funeral Home, Dawsonville, GA.
