Grimmett, Gannon T.


It is with much sorrow we share with you the passing of our loving son, brother, and friend.
Gannon was born on February 13, 1971 and died November 2, 2012.

Gannon was proud to serve our country a total of 16 years; first as a Corporal 1st class United States Marine, and more recently as a Specialist E4 in the United States Army National Guard. Wounded overseas in Iraq, he was honorably discharged and returned home to the state of which he was so proud to be born and raised, Texas. His joy in life was his family, and he never failed to demonstrate the intense love he had for all of us. He doted on his little sisters, nieces, and nephews and never let pass an opportunity to make someone feel special. He had creative talents that were expressed through drawing, painting, and wood carving. He had a passion for movies and music, but also enjoyed cooking, dancing, fishing, football, and bringing a smile to the face of everyone who knew him. His faith was strong; and his love for all God

Many many condolences and prayers to the family. I feel like I know you all already, even though I haven’t met you yet. Arielle has always been very special to me throughout college in our sorority and the years following. I know that her relationship with you all, including Gannon, is part of what has made her who she is today. I am so grateful for the wonderful, special person Gannon was and will continually keep him in my prayers.



We love you and in are hearts and our prayers.

I am so very very sorry for your loss. I still remember him dancing with Mom to Neon Moon at the wedding and I will for ever think of him when I hear that song….”I shoulda been a Cowboy”

My deepest sympathies to Gannon’s family and friends. I only really knew Gannon for a brief time in Elementary school, but kept in contact with him through mutual friends over the years. I will always remember being amazed at how easily Gannon knew the city and back roads of Dallas as he whipped us to clubs back in the day:) Gannon will be in my prayers.
