Alan Wayne Grimsley

November 19, 1963 — October 3, 2021

Alan Wayne Grimsley, 57, of Middleburg, Florida passed from this life on October 3, 2021, with his loving wife of 36 years, by his side. He was born to Bobby and Betty Grimsley on November 19, 1963, in Fitzgerald, Ga.

He was in the first graduating class of Middleburg High, 1982 and was the first reigning Mr. Middleburg. It was there where he met his high school sweetheart, Melissa Harsey and they married in 1985. He proudly served in the United States Army, flying medivac during Desert Storm and hurricane Andrew.

Alan dedicated his life to serving his Lord and Savior. He served throughout his life in various servant leader roles such as mission trips, youth, and men’s ministry. He called Celebration Church Orange Park his home for the last 10 years.

When he wasn’t cheering on his Georgia Dawgs, he was busy loving his wife, collecting stamps or “miniature works of art”, and squeezing in a nap whenever he could. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Robert Grimsley. Survived by his wife, Melissa aka “Hot Stuff”, his “love trophies”- son Clint and daughter Lauren (Matthew), and his three grandchildren Jackson, Daniel and Elianna.
