Mayor Sarno and Chief of Staff Ashe Wish Bill Grimes a Happy Birthday

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Chief of Staff Tom Ashe joined with William E. “Bill” Grimes to celebrate Bill’s 92nd birthday. Bill is a U.S. Army veteran and retired telephone company engineer. He is a proud resident of Springfield’s Hungry Hill neighborhood and beloved father and grandfather.

Mayor Sarno stated, “It was an honor and pleasure to stop by and visit my good friend Mr. Bill Grimes, always the gentleman, in our Hungry Hill neighborhood today and wish him a very happy 92nd birthday. Bill was quite the fast pitch softball player in the Skip McCarthy league and now has a whole team full of grandkids who I know he loves so much, as well as his wonderful children. Bill, wishing you a happy and healthy birthday. Slainte!”

P.S. “He looks great and that iron handshake – I’d hate to catch a backhand from him!”
