Robert (Bob) Grimm died on July 23 at Harborview hospital due to complications from a fall. His partner, sons and grandsons were there to say goodbye. He was 2 days from his 83rd birthday. Bob was a chemistry graduate of the University of Washington. He spent his working career in the soft drink industry. Second to the love of his family, he loved travel. He traveled to the seven continents (in RV in 5) and over 70 countries. His main love in the travels was nature and wildlife. Birding became a passion after seeing all the colorful birds in Australia. No one was a stranger to him and he loved joking and having fun with all. He is survived by the love of his life Helen, two sons Robert and Brock (Janet), two grandsons Rob and Zach, niece Sandy (Dave), nephew Ken (Theresa), 2 great nieces Kayleigh and Nicole, sister-in-law Nancy and cousins in Germany. His brother Hans predeceased him. A life celebration will be scheduled in the future. Donations to honor his memory can be sent to The Nature Conservancy or the Sierra Club.


Leave the earth with beauty

Earth specializes in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. We then send this soil to our local conservation land where it’s used for restoration projects such as reforestation and nourishing challenged ecosystems.
