Richard "Dick" Grimm

Richard “Dick” Grimm, age 77, of Lancaster, drove his final lap in car #96 and entered the winner’s circle in heaven on Monday, December 7, 2020 at his residence surrounded by his family.  He was born July 3, 1943 in Lancaster and was the son of the late Ottie and Loraine (Haefner) Grimm.  He was a retired tow motor mechanic for Lancaster Glass after 40 years of service.  He was the owner and driver of Grimm Racing and raced on dirt tracks for 25 years.  He loved to plow snow and mow grass, anything that had a motor and wheels.

            He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Lona Mae (Roark) Grimm; three children, Tammy Grimm and Terry (Amy) Grimm both of Lancaster and Bob Grimm of Bartlett, Ohio; grandchildren, Jenny (Chris) Sargent, Joshua Grimm, Walker Grimm, Meagan (Luke) Thimmes and Summer McKinnon; great grandchildren, Brayden, Noah, Angel, Makayla, Isabella, Colten, Weston, Austin and Abigail; brother, Charles (Carol) Grimm of Lancaster and a sister, Mary Brooks of Amanda and nieces and nephews.

            A cremation was handled with care by the Taylor-Theller Funeral Home in Amanda and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
