Legacy College Fund for Kevin Grimes Grandkids

Donation protected
In honor of Kevin Grimes, we are raising funds for his two grandchildren, Jordan and Jaxon, in lieu of flowers.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Kevin Grimes on November 24, 2023, after an 8 month battle of sudden illnesses. Kevin was a loving husband, father, grandpa (PaPa), uncle, cousin and friend.

In lieu of flowers, Kevin's family is asking for donations to Jordan and Jaxon's college fund. Kevin's legacy will live on through his beloved wife, Sandra, his adored children, Jacob and Jenni and his treasured grandchildren, Jordan and Jaxon. Nothing made him more proud or happier than seeing his children succeed in life and accomplish their goals and dreams far beyond he could have imagined. Every contribution will be saved in Jordan and Jaxon's 529 savings account. This fund will grant them the financial means to pursue higher education, empowering them to reach their fullest potential and carry forward their PaPa's undeniable mark. Nothing would bring Kevin greater joy than knowing he played a part in helping to secure a brighter future for them.

Thank you all for your support and love during this difficult time. Kevin will live on in our hearts forever and always. We will have a Celebration of Life at The Collinsville Recreation Club on December 10th.

*He Only Takes The Best*

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you, and whispered, "Come to me."

With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
