David Corwin Grimmius was born on September 19th, 1954, in Worthington, MN. He was the son of Cort and Helen. David graduated as a Worthington Trojan in 1972. His education continued at Worthington Community College and Mankato State University, where he earned his degree in Social Work. In the summer of 1975, David and Doreen were united in marriage. They established their home in St. Peter, where they raised their two sons - Tanner (Annie) and Will (Anne). David was always known for his love of sports, spending endless hours coaching and volunteering for his sons' teams, officiating high school volleyball, basketball, and baseball, and spectating whatever sports were in season. He solidified his passion for the Green Bay Packers by becoming a shareholder many years ago. David spent 32 years as a Social Worker at the Security Hospital in St. Peter, retiring with great enthusiasm after counting down his last 50 pay periods. During retirement, David lived a full and happy life working at Gustavus and high school sporting events, traveling with Doreen, chasing after his grandchildren (Miles and Weston), and helping Tanner and Will with home projects. In addition, he took up wine-making as a hobby and enjoyed sharing the fruits of his labor with family and friends. In the Spring of 2014, David was diagnosed with lung cancer. He passed away peacefully at home with his family on March 28th, 2015. David is survived by his wife, Doreen of St. Peter; son, Tanner and wife, Annie and their children, Miles and Weston, of Owatonna, and son, Will and wife, Anne of Shakopee.
