In memory of
Darrell Lee Grigsby Evansville, Indiana Darrell Lee Grigsby, 60, of Evansville, passed away Monday, January 7, 2019 surrounded by his family at home. He was born September 29, 1958 in Evansville to the late Lloyd and Maggie (Wardrip) Grigsby. He was very active with Harwood and Central baseball and softball and brought the Fast Pitch back to Evansville. He was manager at North Park Raben Tire. Darrell dedicated his life to others. So many people loved and looked up to him for his wisdom and compassion as a friend. He spent countless hours making the fields, players and programs he was involved with at Central better. He was a booster but not an average booster. He was a booster of men, women and children. Darrell was an incredible coach and mentor. He took countless kids to and from practice and was their sponsor. Darrell developed the Evansville Stealers travel softball team and the girls were his pride and joy. He built the Southern Indiana Club website and helped build the league. He would tackle any problem that Central Athletic faced. He developed the Courage Award, a Central scholarship program, in memory of his son Randy. Darrell had incredible integrity and moral character and touched many lives. Darrell was preceded in death by his son, Randy Grigsby; brothers, Ricky Grigsby and Orville Grigsby, and sister, Marsha Axton. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Deborah Grigsby; daughter, April Grigsby; grandchildren, Madisyn, Maycee and Maekyn Grigsby; brother, Bradley Grigsby; sister, Virginia Exline and cousin and best friend, Bob Casey.
