    Growing up Rob was always so much fun and up to date on the latest music and events. I can remember staying the night with Brooke and he would be laying on the floor watching Friday night music videos. He was our chaperone to my first concert, Bon Jovi in 1988. I loved going to his parents for dinner on the weekend and playing croquet in the backyard. He was always so welcoming!
    My thoughts and prayers have been and continue to be with Brooke and the family. May he rest in peace!

    Rob was a dear friend to us for 40 plus years! He had such a wonderful dry wit and he loved rock and roll music! We attended many OU Texas games with he and his wife Bobbie and went on vacation with them! Our children loved Halloween when Rob and my husband would take them around Chimney Hill to the homes and especially the talking pumpkin ! He was kind, loving and such a good man! He will be greatly missed!❤️

    Growing up Uncle Rob always made us feel SO special. He ALWAYS made us laugh and took time the time to spend with us. As I’ve grown up and had my own kids to see him do the same with them is a gift I will never forget. He LOVED big and will be missed BIG. I feel so blessed to have had him not only in my life, but as a member of my family. Our thoughts and prayers are
    with my Aunt, cousins, and Bailey and Blake who he absolutely adored. Love you all.

    We have known Rob since we were teenagers bowling at Windsor Lanes. Later on (when we were “legal”), we would meet up with him and Bobbie at a bar to shoot pool. Occasionally, we would get together either before or after an OU game in Dallas or in Norman. You could always count on Rob to make you laugh. He would read a simple article out of the newspaper and the way he read it would crack you up. Rob just had that way about him. He was a kind, gentle and easy going man. Rob will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family.

    Growing up with Papa, I always felt so special and loved. He had a way of making every moment memorable and full of joy. Some of my favorite memories are the times we spent together going to the pool, fishing by the lake, and taking walks with the dogs. Papa had an wonderful sense of humor, always ready with a joke or funny story that could light up a room. I will miss him dearly and hold our memories close to my heart. Thank you, Papa, for all the love and joy you brought into my life. Love you, Pop. Rest in peace.

    We met Rob & Bobbie through his highschool friends John & Janet Gatlin. We spent many times before or after OU games with him. Also a few get togethers with he & Bobbie at the Gatlin’s home for a summer cookout. He was always so funny and fun to be around. We look back fondly on those times and will miss you, even though we had not seen Rob & Bobbie in several years…..Our thoughts & prayers go out to Bobbie, their children, grandchildren & extended family. Bill & Cheryl Brackett, Norman, Ok.

    Rob was more than a brother-in-law, he was considered a great friend. I really enjoyed the times I spent with Rob. He was always a lot of fun to be with. He was always upbeat and had a great personality. I enjoyed playing golf with him. He was a super guy and I’m going to miss him.

    Words can never be enough to express our deepest sympathy for Rob’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Grimmett family at the saddest of times. Rob was an awesome person who was always happy and smiling to everyone he came in contact with. He was full of joy, loved to fish, and loved his family! We will miss him.

    From Jr High, being with Rob was interesting. Flying down a hill sitting on his handle bars and surviving, Will Rogers Park, Clay Cliffs, together in the trunk of my 47 Ford, bowling. His beautiful 54 Green and white Chevy coup. Fishing all night long at Hefner, and our great Explorer canoe trip to Canada, which he loved so much that he returned at least twice. What really great memories Rob….and our lunch meetings in later years. Thank you for those memories Rob. And best of all….. we never got arrested.
