Reflections for Police Officer Robert Francis "Bob" Grim, Sr.

Bob was a funny man! Anyone one who knew him knew what a great person he really was. I'm so sorry this happened to a great man who sought to serve the residents of Volusia County. God Bless you Bob! R.I.P.

Officer, may you rest in peace. Thank you for your service and sacrifices that you have made. God's peace be with you. I wish every person that has driven drunk would read this site, and read about all the innocent people that have lost their lives to a drunk driver. When will people wake up? When will people learn to be responsible? Officer, thank you for your service. Your family, coworkers and friends are in my heart and prayers.

It's an absolute shame that a man in our line of work that managed 36 years in "the business" died so needlessly because of another mans choice to drive after drinking. Our prayers are with your family, friends and the Ormond Beach P.D. Rest easy Officer Grim knowing that your work on Earth was not in vain- God was just ready for you to join His Department!!

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but a two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

I first met Bob when I was an eight grader and Bob was serving in Community Relations for the Daytona Becah Police Department. He was the perfect role model. Later, as a Paramedic Lieutenant with Volusia County EVAC, I would see Bob from time to time, still always the perfect role model. My lasting memory of Bob is his singing "The Lord's Prayer" at a fallen officer's funeral.

Thank you, Bob Grim...God bless you, your family, and your brother and sister officers.

TO: The family; loved ones; friends and department members: A POLICE OFFICER’S PRAYER:--- O, gentle Lord ! Keep the day/night watch with me. As I begin my tour of duty, I ask your protection from all mental, physical and spiritual harm. Sustain me with the knowledge that I am doing your work, endeavoring to keep peace among your people. Help me to be just as I enforce the law without prejudice or favor to anyone. May I be courageous but not reckless in carrying out my duties. Let me respond to all calls with haste realizing that so many are dependent upon me for life and safety. Support me with your consoling power when I am tempted to think no one really cares and that I am taken for granted. Sustain in me the conviction that so many thousands do care and are grateful for my presence. Grant that I may be loyal to my partner and my fellow officers, and that I may back them up effectively when called upon for assistance. Lord, I ask that I may return safely, after my tour of duty, to my loved ones and those who love me. I pray that I may be a good and honorable police officer; and after my tour of duty is over here on earth, may I enjoy the peace and happiness of heaven that you have promised to those who serve you well. AMEN. *** REST IN PEACE *** Sent to you by the father of Detective J.D.Koeppen, Capital City Raleigh North Carolina; Trooper D.C.Koeppen, New Jersey State Police and Cadet Officer A.M.Koeppen, Wilmington North Carolina.

My deepest sympathy to the Grim family and all his fellow officers on this tragic loss. I too lost my son to a Drunk Driver on 8/8/04 while he was on patrol in Chicago. It is tragic because this type of accident could have been prevented but someone decided to drive while intoxicated. May God watch over Officer Grim's family and I hope his department assists his family in any way they can to help them get through this terrible time in thier lives.
