It is with heavy hearts that Ralph E. Grimm “Pap”, of Marietta, OH, passed away on December 23, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on August 7, 1928 in Sarver, PA, a son of the late Oliver W. and Anna Petsinger Grimm.

In Pittsburgh, he was employed with PPG Industries for 44 years. Ralph was a Veteran of the Korean War, a member of the Crown of Life Lutheran Church, and an active member of the Marietta Community.

He retired to Marietta to help raise and nurture his grandchildren in the early 1990s. Known to everyone as “Pap”, his greatest joy was his grandchildren. He is survived by two sons, Douglas A. Grimm (Gwenn) of Cleveland and David C. Grimm (Pamela) of Orlando, FL; a daughter, Leslie A. Gearhart (Keith) of Whipple, OH; and eight grandchildren, Christopher Grimm (Katie), Megan Edwards (Shawn), Ryan, Clayton and Jaclyn Grimm, and Jessica, Mitchel and Adam Gearhart. Ralph was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and seven sisters.

His family will most miss his kindness, sense of humor and love. He deeply enriched the lives of his family, and we are all better for knowing him. His family will treasure his love and memory always.

At his request, a private family service will take place at Sarverville Cemetery, in Sarver, PA, with full military rites observed. In lieu of donations please plant a flower in his memory.

Cawley & Peoples Funeral Home is honored to assist the Grimm family, offering on-line condolences and many other resources by .

I had the joy of worshipping with Ralph at Crown of Life Lutheran Church. His love for the Lord Jesus and his word was evident to all . I will miss him and look forward to the day we shall meet again. Dear family, our prayers go out to you. In Christian love, Mona Balsley

I had the privilege of being in a Bible study with Ralph at Crown of Life Lutheran and enjoyed his kind, gentle manner and contributions to the discussion. We used to compare how many calendars we got from charitable organizations each year's end. I know that his Lord and God will comfort all of you and it is a wonderful peace to know our loved ones are with the God they served. Barbara Hintz.
