Recieved word a few minutes ago that Grier Manning passed away in Colorado Springs today. It is reported Grier broke a hip and passed due to complications. No funeral arrangements at this time but we will forward them when announced. In September I visited with Grier at his shop on Delta Drive in the Springs. At 91 he still opened his shop everyday and admitted he didn’t get much done. We talked of Joe Pittman, Parnelli, Aggie and others, including Paul Klienschmit and his Cadillac powered Champ car when Paul came in the back door. Our condolences to Ken and Ann, and the entire family. GW, BCRA and Hall of Fame.
We have received word that a celebration of life will be planned in the future to celebrate the life of Grier, instead of a public funeral at this time.
