He is preceded in death by his parents, sons, Dominic and Gannon, and grandson, Dominic.
Coye was born August, 1937 to Coye and Hazel (Russell) Grimmett in Lewisville, Arkansas. The oldest of three boys, he attended Jesuit High School and Forest Avenue High School, Dallas. He attended the University of Dallas and received an MA in Religious Education in 1981. He was a third order Carmelite. He worked for Fox Photo followed by Allstate Insurance Company for 30 years.
Coye was the most amazing, unique, boisterous, mystical, musical, humorous, hungry, spiritual, cosmic, crazy, loud, dramatic, loving, instructing, poetic, magnetic, theatrical, and magical husband, father, grandfather, and brother anyone could hope for. He held us when we wept and rocked us to sleep, taught us to show convictions for our passions and tried to fashion each of us into the perfect person (or at least look good while being imperfect!)Through bad lessons and good, he did what he could to show us how to live. He will forever be present in our laughter, loudness, humor, hijinks, generosity, unconditional love, pranks, spirituality, and spunk. He wished for us all to walk in peace and love with the scent of wildflowers surrounding us on our path to an intimate encounter with God.
Services will begin at 11:30am Monday, May 11, 2015, at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, 2800 Valwood Pkwy, Farmers Branch with the holy rosary, followed by a Memorial Mass at 12:00pm, interment at MI Columbarium and reception in church hall at 1:15pm.
