Donald Barton Grimm, 76, On April 4, 2008, made his transition from this world leaving his beloved family, his wife Sara, son Bruce, daughters Andrea and Laticia, seven grandchildren, a sister Merrilyn, two nieces and two nephews. Don left a wonderful legacy of caring for the well being of the many, many students he worked with as a guidance counselor for 35 years with TUSD. A private memorial will be planned for later. For many years he has sponsored children through the organization Children International. Donations in his name may be made to continue the sponsorship of the two children he had been sponsoring. The address is: Children International, P.O. Box 219055, Kansas City, MO 64121.
Donald graduated from T.L. Handy High school in 1949, where he met his future wife, Susan Risser, a fellow graduate. After Susan died of cancer in 1963, he married Sara Jane Chastain in November 1964.
