The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Joe was born June 8, 1950 in Abingdon, VA a son of Robert James Grimshaw, Sr. and Hazel Lee Ellison Grimshaw.

Special friend and “Partner n’ Crime,” Judy Lamar. He was predeceased by his loving parents and brother, Robert James Grimshaw Jr. Joe grew up in Columbia and attended AC Flora High School. He had many occupations throughout his life including owning a landscaping business. He truly loved working outside and enjoyed planting flowers. Another favorite was telling a good story that ended in hearty laughter. Joe was a sweet, simple soul who had learned to value every penny. He could always tell you where to find the best bargins. Generous and hardworking, he was quick to lend a hand from picking up pinecones or sweeping at his apartment complex, to blowing off his sister’s driveway when he visited. Joe loved his family especially his nieces! He demonstrated the beauty and power of rising above challenges as he overcame the complications from a devastating accident early in his life. His faith grew, and he was able to serve and help his family and many others with his talents. He will long be remembered for his ability to persevere through faith and hope in Jesus. Joe’s “Oh Lawd, moments,” will be recalled and continue to bring joy to his family and friends throughout their lives. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Joe’s honor to: The Santee Wateree Mental Health: Carolina Place Program.
