Memories Timeline


  1. Although I did not know him well, as a board member I had the highest respect and admiration for a fine man who seemed always to downplay his role in his school's success and give credit to his staff. My sincerest condolences.

  2. Mr. Grimes was my teacher in the 4th grade at Clayton Elementary School. He was very special to me. I have a picture of him that I took on a return visit to see him at Clayton when he was principal there. I had a deep respect for him. My mother, Esther Roth, worked in the school system for several years and she and I would like to express our sympathy to the family of a wonderful man. I know you will miss him.
