  • Obituary
  • Guestbook
John M. Grimes, age 85, of Kerrville, Texas, died on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at Peterson Regional Medical Center, surrounded by his family. John M. Grimes was born on June 5, 1936, in San Antonio, Texas, and is the son of the late W. T. Grimes (a former Texas Ranger) and Nell Barfield Grimes. He was raised and attended schools in Alice, Texas.

With two $50.00 checks (a loan from his aunt) in his pocket, he moved to Dallas to attend Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science. He immediately began seeking employment and found a job at Weiland Merritt Funeral Home in Dallas, where he lived and worked while attending school. He also had a second job as a "grease monkey" at a local car wash. John graduated from mortuary school in 1956 and was a member of the honorary fraternity, Pi Sigma Eta. He served his apprenticeship at Cage-Marshall Funeral Home in Aransas Pass, where he learned the business from the ground up - digging graves, making set ups, running ambulance, working services, working in the prep room, working in the yard, washing cars, etc.

After serving his apprenticeship in Aransas Pass, John moved and was employed in the funeral service for ten years in Corpus Christi.

John married the former Susie Barr of Sinton, Texas, their marriage taking place on October 21, 1967. In 1967, they moved to San Antonio and was part owner and manager of Southside Funeral Home. His life in San Antonio at Southside Funeral Home was a learning experience in itself. During the ten years at Southside, John had the military contract and this was during the Viet Nam era.

John and Susie moved to Kerrville in April of 1977 and purchased Plummer Funeral Home in Kerrville and Bandera.

John and Susie have two grown children, Rebecca Lynne Cates and husband Roger of Henderson, Nevada and Johnny Grimes and wife Stacey of Kerrville, Texas. He has four grandsons, Hunter Grimes, Walker Grimes, Austin Cates, and Carson Cates. He is also survived by sister-in-law and spouse, Pat and Archie Dworaczyk of Rocksprings and several nieces and nephews.

When John and Susie arrived in Kerrville, they became active members of Trinity Baptist Church, where John has served as Sunday School Director of Adult 1 Department, Property Committee chairman, and Finance Committee chairman. They have been faithful members of Trinity. John is also a member of the Gideons.

John is a member and past president of the South Central Texas Funeral Directors Association and also held each office and went through the officer's chairs of TFDA. He served as President of TFDA in 1979-1980, being installed at the 93rd annual convention. In 2003, John was named and honored by TFDA at their annual convention as "Funeral Director of the Year." Also, in 2007, he received from TFDA his 50-year pin as a licensed funeral director/embalmer. John is also a member of the Hill Country Funeral Directors Association.

Throughout the years, John served as an officer and member of various community organizations. He belongs to the Kerrville Rotary Club, longtime board member of Kerrville Parks and Recreation Board, past board member of the Hill Country Advisory Council of Schreiner College, past member and chairman of United Way Fund Drive, and was Co-chairman of the Business and Professional Division of the Hill Country College Fund for Schreiner College in 1980.

John is also past president of the Kerrville Convention and Visitors Bureau, and served as board member and officer for many years. He was honored by Kerrville CVB in 2017 and was the first recipient of the Sudie Burditt Wall of Fame. He is past president of the Kerrville Chamber of Commerce and was honored as "Small Business Man of the Year" in 1984.

John belongs to the Kerrville Chapter No. 305 Royal Arch Mason, Kerrville Chapter No. 240, Royal and Select Masters of Texas, San Antonio Consistory, 32nd Degree Mason. He is a life member of the Kerrville Masonic Lodge No. 697 (recently receiving his 60 year pin), Kerrville Order of Eastern Star Chapter No. 24.

He is an avid supporter of the youth of the Hill Country including the Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show, where he has been a buyer for 45 years.

His life revolved around responding to the needs of others. He sacrificed many family functions to help a family in their time of need. He was called to this special ministry and his purpose was to make the darkest days and the most difficult journey for a family a little easier. As a dedicated person to his community he was always ready to serve. John is a person with a loving nature, touches everyone with his gregarious personality and quick wit. He has an uncanny knack for one-liners. John considered his work to have been a blessing, made his life priceless for all the people he has met, lives he touched, smiles and hugs he has given. If you knew John, you know you are going to get a hug. Susie also said that John is a man of his word, a man of exceptional honor, dignity, and faith. His legacy will live on.

Visitation for John will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Grimes Funeral Chapels.

Funeral services will be Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church, 800 Jackson Road, Kerrville, Texas. John's service will be livestreamed, click the banner below to view.

Private graveside services will be held at a later date at Grimes Ranch.

Special thanks to the many doctors who have taken care of John throughout the years, Peterson Regional Hospital, and his special caregivers, Maria and Amanda.

I just learned of the death of Mr. Grimes. I met Mr. Grimes and Susie in the early 70's when I was working for Robert Duncan at Colonial Funeral Home in Victoria. He was always smiling and just one good guy. As the years went on my partners and I built Rosewood Funeral Chapels in Victoria. Mr. Grimes always supported our new venture. He always said " you guys will do great". I always enjoyed the fun times with the Grimes at the conventions. He was always the life of the party and would light up the room when he came in. He touched many lives in his long service in the funeral profession. I will cherish the fun times I had with both him and Susie. May god bring his blessings upon the entire Grimes family.

Johnny & family,

Your father was one of the most caring and compassionate men I have ever had the honor of knowing. He has helped countless families get thru some of their darkest days and always did it with compassion. I had the honor of knowing him outside of his business as well when I worked at Schreiner Bank and I have to say he never failed to put a smile on my face or make me laugh every time he came in. He had such a wicked sense of humor…he was always a pleasure to wait on. One of the things I will miss most are his big bear hugs and his words of wisdom that always seemed to help me understand and accept the tragedies of death. There will never be another like him. I know he and Charles are up there watching over us now and preparing a place for us when our time comes.

My life has been better for having known him and he will be missed beyond measure.

With love,

Winnie

In August of 1977 I went through the darkest days of my life, the loss of my 5 month old son to meningitis. Through those days John was the face of true compassion, a steady hand, a shoulder to cry on, and always had an answer to my many questions. During that time he became a caring friend to me as he did to all those who crossed his path. What a treasure we have lost, what a treasure heaven has gained!

I met Mr. John Grimes around 1978 when the Hill Country had a major 100 year flood. There were flood related deaths and I saw him at a Center Point Cemetery. I was a photographer for the KDT and took flood related photos. . One of the qualities that impressed me about the Grimes Famiky is that they participated at every church community activity, festivals and not just funerals. So naturally when I saw the Grimes family at our Notre Dame parish functions I was impressed. He was a member at Trinity, but he was a fella that enjoyed being around all tribes ! He was an early progressive in our Kerrville. Setting an example for all of us in the 1970s !

Mr. Grimes was a friend to many.
I know to my dad he was. Mr. Candelario Garcia . Dad would just drop by to visit with him. When we went to funerals. And Mr. Grimes would shake dad's hand. Dad would tell him. Don't look at me. I'm not ready yet. They joked alot.
I have to say all the Grimes family is sweet.
Mr. Grimes you will never be forgotten. You will be missed by many.
