Grimmer, Donald G
Bay City, Michigan
Don, passed away on November 16, 2021 at the age of 67. He was born in Hammond Indiana on April 25, 1954 to the late Harry Peter Grimmer and Regina Theresa LaPlaunt. He served in the U.S. Navy and was a member of the Church of Christ. He enjoyed the simple things of life and helped anyone who asked or needed it. You could always find him working on personal cars and helping another in need with car repair. He enjoyed snowplowing out the neighbors on his mighty tractor.

Also surviving are two special family friends who became “family”, John Moton and Tina Zapata, whose help is very appreciated and will never be forgotten. He was predeceased by the love of his life, sweetheart Melody (Chapman) Grimmer; and siblings, Steve Grimmer, Mike Grimmer, and Constance “Connie” Grimmer.
