Robert "Bob" Grimes
Nov. 23 1946-Mar. 30 2013
Resident of Antioch
Our husband and father was a proud and honorable man. After a long battle with mesothelioma he tired of fighting, passing at home on Saturday March 30th at the age of 66 with his loving family by his side.
Bob served in the navy during Vietnam. He was a Machinist Mate 2nd class from1965-1969. He worked for the Antioch Unified School District for over 30 years. During that time he wore many different hats.
He loved his family and friends dearly. He loved his home in Bodega Bay were he was a generous host to all who arrived. He also got a kick out of driving his "66" GTO these last 5 years.
Bob will be missed by many. His wife Lorrie, two adult children Shannon, Erin and their spouses. His two grandchildren Chelsey, Selia and a large amount of family and friends who cherished him. We are grateful to Hospice and nurse Sharon Smith who was there to help Bob and us through. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Hospice of Kaiser.
A celebration of his life will be held at 3pm, Friday April 5th at the Lone Tree Golf Course in Antioch.
