Dec. 20, 1961 — Jan. 5, 2018
Keith Alan Grimm, the son of Clifford and Rosene (Miller) Grimm was born Dec. 20, 1961, in Algona. He was raised in West Bend and graduated from the West Bend High School in 1980. Keith attended Iowa Lakes Community College for two years before he pursued his passion in farming.
He married Beth Wagner on Sept. 14, 1985, at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in West Bend. The couple lived and farmed in the West Bend area during their married lives and raised two children.
Early on in life, Keith enjoyed many activities; including motocross riding, snowmobiling, grass-drag racing competitions and softball league. Later, he enjoyed spending time restoring antique tractors with his father, camping and riding ATV’s with his family and visiting his paradise city, Lake Havasu City, Ariz. He was a huge Minnesota Vikings fan his entire life, making it a priority to attend training camp every year. Most of all, he loved to be with his family, friends and those who helped him farm.
He is survived by his wife, Beth, of Algona, daughter, Wendy Grimm, of Johnston, and son, Brady Grimm of Johnston; brother, Wayne (Rose) Grimm, of West Bend; sisters, Wanda Grimm of Peoria, Ill., and Karen (Ken) Schirm, of Stuart; and father-in-law, Eugene Wagner of West Bend.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clifford and Rosene (Miller) Grimm, mother-in-law, Mary Jean (Lundgren) Wagner, and brother-in- law, Randy Wagner.
