April 9 1950 December 29 2022
Obituary Edward “Ed” Richard Grisham, of Rolla, MO, passed away Thursday, December 29, 2022 at the age of 72. He was born on April 9, 1950 in Rolla, MO to the late James and Mary (Gaddy) Grisham. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by one brother Leonard Grisham; six brother-in-laws, Terry Carmack, Richard Brown, Duane Dickey, Bob Pritchett, Jim Rosenburg, Ronald Gulley; and two sister-in-laws, Nelda Grisham and Emma Grisham. Ed, known as Eddy Boy to those close to him, was born in the family home, the “white house”, and was one of eleven siblings in his family. Growing up, their family established a love for one another that is very prevalent still today. He was a 1968 graduate of Rolla High School. On August 28, 1969, Ed enlisted in the US Army and served our country honorably for six years. He received the National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and was an expert rifleman. Additionally, Ed served in the Army National Guard for four years. For many years, he worked in construction and owned a plastering business. Ed was an avid outdoorsman. You could find him catching catfish on the Gasconade, hunting deer on Camp Creek, and running his coon hounds on Flatwoods with family and friends. Ed lived a very simple life,but cared for others’ needs before himself. He always enjoyed catching up with family and friends, which may have ended in a heated debate occasionally. Ed loved watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball, but many knew not to disturb him while he was watching his favorite show, The Price is Right. Ed had a strong love for all of his siblings, extended family, and friends, but no love compared to the love he had for his son and grandchildren–Pops’ prized possessions! Ed will be greatly missed by his surviving family which includes: one son Chris Grisham and wife Stephanie of Rolla, MO; three grandchildren Austin Layne Grisham, Olivia Suzanne Grisham, and Alexis Deanne Grisham; three brothers Cecil Grisham and wife Wanda of Rolla, MO, Les Grisham and wife Brenda of Rolla, MO, Terry Grisham and wife Jackie of Rolla, MO; six sisters Audrey Pritchett of Rolla, MO, Mary Ann Rosenburg of Rolla, MO, Nellie Brown of Rolla, MO, Sharon Warren and husband Martin of Rolla, MO, Karen Carmack and partner Randy Furse of Rolla, MO, Brenda Gulley and partner Chesley Daniels of Rolla MO.
