Jimmy Alan Grice

May 27, 1953---November 6, 2019

Jimmy Alan Grice, age 66, passed away Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at the Samaritan Evergreen Hospice House in Albany, Oregon.
Jimmy was born in Albany, to James Grice and Betty Sitton. Jimmy graduated from Albany Union High School, in 1971 and lived in Albany, his entire life. Jimmy married his high school sweetheart, Peggy Martin, on June 15, 1974. He worked at Teledyne Wah Chang for 39 years, until retiring in 2012.
Jimmy loved the outdoors. He and his father grew arborvitae trees for many years. He loved Nascar, hunting, fishing, camping and especially enjoyed his pet ducks. Most of all, Jimmy loved his family. He always put their needs before his. Poppa Jim was always seen with one of his “girls”. His daughters and granddaughters were a big part of his life on the farm. Sometimes quiet, his heart was so big it could be felt by those near and dear to him. Friends played an important role throughout his life too, and no request went without his helping hand.
Jimmy is survived by his children, Amber and Megan Grice of Albany. His sister, Kay Grice-Gonsalves of Nevada, his niece Traci Kezar of Vancouver Washington, 3 grandchildren, Sydnee Grice, Kennedy Starline and Rylie Paden of Albany and 1 great grandchild, Aubrey Grice. He was preceded in death by his wife and parents.
