Darriel Franklin Grimes CHARLESTON - Darriel Franklin Grimes, 89, of Charleston, SC passed away on Tuesday, April 19, 2017. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, April 22nd at Carolina Memorial Park, 7113 Rivers Avenue, North Charleston. Darriel was born on September 27, 1927 in Garfield, GA. He served in the U.S. Navy as Seaman First Class on the U.S.S. Lucidor. After serving in the military, he owned and operated The American Bar in downtown historic Charleston on King Street and then worked for Charleston County for over 25 years. Darriel was married to Nancy Lee Milton Grimes for 63 years. They shared a love of animals, fishing and vacationing in Florida. On any given day, you could find Darriel working in his yard trying to win another "Yard of the Month" award. Darriel maintained his sarcastic sense of humor whether he felt good or not. Those who knew him knew that he would wait for your response before he would give you a little smirk. You never knew what he was going to say next! Darriel is survived by his brother Daniel Grimes. He was preceded in death by his wife Nancy and his sisters Dorothy L. Grimes, Trauby G. Manning and Genell Messervy. Darriel was a beloved uncle and great uncle to many.
