Obituary for Douglas M. Grimh
Douglas M. Grimh (Pugsley), 49, resident of Frederic – Township of Luck, died Thursday, June 14, 2012, in his sleep at home.
Doug was born Sept. 11, 1962, in Grantsburg, WI to Marvin and Minnie Grimh and was raised in Frederic. In high school, Doug played and lettered all four years in football and golf. He received a special award in football as an outstanding football center. After graduating from Frederic High School, he attended WITC to become an auto mechanic. After graduating from WITC he returned to work at the Frederic Golf Course as a groundskeeper, where he had been working since high school. He enjoyed working at the Frederic Golf Course, working under the supervision of Boyd Duncan and Ray Amundson. He was a dedicated and well-liked employee there for 33 years.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors and loved to go fishing with family and friends. He especially enjoyed ice fishing in the winter with Rollie in the ice shack. In the fall he eagerly awaited the start of deer season, hoping to have a successful hunt. He also enjoyed golfing, bowling and pool and played many years with various team and leagues. Being sports-minded, he watched football, hockey and Nascar and loved collecting trading cards for all of these sports.
One of the special things in Doug's life was spending time with his family. He enjoyed bringing them various things through the years that he knew they would enjoy such as sports items, stuffed animals and pickles. He loved to tease them whenever he could. He had a big heart and was an outstanding uncle to his nephews and nieces spending countless hours taking them to their school and sports events. He enjoyed watching them perform at school programs and came to every ballgame that he was able to attend. He especially enjoyed hockey and volunteered as a hockey coach for David's team prior to David playing WIAA High School hockey. He also was especially close to his mom and spent time visiting with her, running errands and taking her shopping.
Doug was preceded in death by his father, Marvin.
He is survived by his mother, Minnie Grimh; his sister, Rebecca (Grimh) (Dr. Brad Harlander); brother, Roland Grimh; nephews, David and Alex Harlander; nieces, Dawn and Lara Harlander; and his aunt, Marie (Turnquist) Vincent.
