Company: Grimes Tree Services
Years of Service: 5+
Comments: Arthur Grimes, 52 of Osteen, FL. passed away doing the very job he loved and enjoyed. Through great adversity he managed to change his life around, thanks to his amazing wife, Faith and their children. In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, “Artie” was contracted to assist with clean up efforts, and his very business that he built from the ground us was a tree-trimming business. “Artie” not only loved his family, and his job, he also loved that he had found a thriving passion for life. His friends and family urge other professionals in the same line of work to be careful. They will fondly remember “Artie” and his unforgettable smile, but they say this incident was avoidable and hope that everyone else please always be safe, and always be careful when dealing with power lines, or any other hazards the job brings. Take the few extra moments to ensure that you are safe, and that you always have someone there when you are on a job site. Safety should always be your #1 priority.
We will not forget you, Arthur “Artie” Grimes.
