Russell Grimes Obituary

Warren – Russell L. Grimes, 80, of Warren passed away on Sunday morning, March 3, 2024 at his home, surrounded by his loving wife and family by his side..

Russell was born on September 25, 1943 in Daisytown, PA, a son of Ralph and Anna (Svec) Grimes.

Russell was a 1961 graduate of California High School in Pennsylvania. In 1965, Russell married the love of his life, Judith “Judy” Jones, and then moved to Warren, OH where he began work for General Motors in Lordstown. Russell was a dedicated worker, retiring after 47 years from the shipping and receiving department in the car plant at GM Lordstown.

Russell proudly served in the United States Army. He was in the US Army 82nd Airborne Division from 1961-1964, earning an honorable discharge for his service.

Outside of work, Russell enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and tinkering in his garage. Most of all, he cherished the time he spent with his family, especially his grandchildren. His loving presence will be missed by all who knew him.

Russell will always be remembered by his wife of 58 years, Judy Grimes of Warren; sons, Russell Lawrence Grimes of Vienna and Rob (Carrie) Grimes of Vienna; grandchildren, Tiffani Nicole Grimes, Cale Dishong Grimes and Ty Russell Grimes; great grandchildren, Cameron Michael Kovacich; sister, Irma Mori of Stuart, FL; many nieces, nephews, cousins and neighbors and his dear friend, Ralph, with whom Russell enjoyed daily morning coffees.
