Private Memorial Services for Richard Grimes, age 78, of Chambers, Nebraska will be at a later date in the Chambers Cemetery with Rev. Mike Durre officiating. Richard passed away on Friday, June 26, 2020 in Chambers, Nebraska. Memorials may be directed to the family for future designation. Biglin’s Mortuary in O’Neill is in charge of arrangements.

Richard Russell Grimes was born on September 22, 1941 in Chambers, Nebraska to Glen and Pauline (Russell) Grimes. He graduated from Chambers High School in 1959. He always loved horses so he decided to go to Farrier School in the Black Hills to learn how to take care of Horse’s feet. Working as a farrier allowed Richard to work at many of the Horse Race tracks around the Midwest.

When Richard retired, he moved back to the Chambers area. He enjoyed fishing and liked to hunt. He was also a skilled welder and built a statue out of medal.

Richard is survived by his son, Jim (Michelle) Lanfear of Chapin, South Carolina; two granddaughters, Mikayle and Sierra Lanfear; siblings, Bernard (Ruth) Grimes of Seward, Muffy (Curt) Justin of Chambers; many nieces and nephews.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Darlene (Ralph) Adams.
