Joe Grimm

Joe Grimm

Owner, Licensed Embalmer and Funeral Director

Joe Grimm came from humble beginnings, the first of two sons born into a coal mining family in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. On any given afternoon after school, Joe could be found washing cars, being a door greeter, or mowing grass at the funeral home of his upbringing beginning at the early age of just 14 years. A strong work ethic was instilled into him from a young age and after high school Joe attended Mid-America college of Funeral Service in Jeffersonville, Indiana where he graduated with honors. While attending mortuary college, Joe developed a deep passion for the mortuary services aspect of the industry as well as passion for embalming. With over two decades of experience in the funeral industry, Joe continues to serve funeral homes customers across the state and country with a deep rooted commitment to providing industry leading service to all who call on Mountain Mortuary Service LLC. Joe is proud to make his home with his wife Lauren and their children on Rocky Top!
