Robert (Bob) William Grim I, 63, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, Sept. 28, 2009 after a long courageous battle with brain cancer. Bob was born Aug. 2, 1946, in Bergholz, Ohio, the oldest child of Zygfryd Dulkoski and Audrey Grim Dulkoski.
He was raised in Jewett, Ohio, where he met the love of his life, Carol Marie Coleman Grim. They were married May 8, 1967. They lived in Ohio until 1980 when they relocated to Castle Dale, Utah, where Bob continued his hard work as a dedicated coal miner.
After 33 years as a coal miner Bob retired and they later moved to St. George, Utah in 2004.
Bob was a hard worker, and made sure his family was well taken care of. He had a special place in his heart for dogs, and he loved to eat, especially ice cream. He will be remembered for the love he had for his family, his kindness to others, and his unique sense of humor.
