GRIMES, Robert E.

Services for Robert E. Grimes, 66, who died of a heart attack yesterday while removing items from his burning Zihlman home, will be conducted Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in the Durst Funeral Home, Frostburg, by Rev. Frederick J. Gamble. Interment will be in Frostburg Memorial Park. Pallbearers will be Leroy Dishong, George Donius, Arthur Blank, Raymond Hunt Sr., Raymond Hunt Jr. and Robert Hunt. Mr. Grimes, retired dog warden for Allegany County, was pronounced dead on arrival of a coronary at Frostburg Community Hospital after firemen found him in a small metal storage shed near the burning two-story frame dwelling. Personnel of the Hafer-Sowers Ambulance Service administered cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on Mr. Grimes and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Death, according to the deputy county medical examiner, was due to a heart attack. Mr. Grimes reportedly had been working in the back yard on a tractor. A neighbor saw flames coming from the house about 12:30 p.m. and summoned the Frostburg Volunteer Fire Company. Mt. Savage, Clarysville and Shaft volunteer firemen also responded to the blaze, the cause of which is undetermined. John C. Durst, fire chief at Frostburg, said he could see flames coming up through the roof as he approached the fire in his car. When Mr. Grimes was discovered in the metal shed by firemen, they also found two boxes of valuables, a shotgun and various papers which Mr. Grimes apparently had retrieved from the burning house. Frostburg firemen pumped water from a nearby stream until the arrival of tank trucks from the three other fire companies. When Chief Durst and Robert Shimer, fire investigator for the state fire marshal's office, were probing through the charred ruins, they found an electric clock in one of the rooms had stopped at 11:35 a.m. The fire had a head start before firemen were called. Mrs. Grimes was reported to have been shopping in Frostburg at the time of the fire. A native of Hopewell, Pa., Mr.Grimes was a son of the late Mrs. Bessie (Figard) Grimes. He was a veteran of World War II and a member of Farrady Post 24, American Legion, Frostburg, and the Allegany Sportsmen's Club. Surviving are his widow, Helen (Donius) Grimes; three daughters, Mrs. Betty Hunt, Frostburg, and Mrs. Donna Folk and Mrs. Marlene Bittner, both of Zihlman; a son, Robert L. Grimes, Louisville, Ky.; a brother, Joseph Delfosse, Westville, Illinois; two half-sisters, Mrs. Cula Younkin and Mrs. Mildred Henry, both of Lester, Pa.; two half-brothers, Wilmer Figard, Chester, Pa., and Kenneth Figard, Fort Royal, Pa., 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The body is at the Durst Funeral Home where friends will be received from 7 to 9 p.m. today and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow.
