In both sad and joyous news in the Grohl family it was announced that Dave Grohl’s wife Jordyn, gave birth to the couple’s third daughter on Aug. 1. They named their third daughter Ophelia. She joins older sisters Violet, 8, and Harper, 5. Tragic news hit the family on Aug. 6 however, as Dave’s Dad James passed away at the age of 75 after a battle with cancer. He was a respected journalist whose career spanned many years.
From his obituary: “Jim treasured his long and rewarding career in Journalism. He was an Award Winning Journalist that worked for various newspapers, including the Youngstown Vindicator and Columbus Citizens Journal. He then served as Capitol Reporter in Washington DC for the Scripps-Howard News Network. This tenure was interrupted by his service in the United States Army in 1961-1964, where he edited the Stars and Stripes Army newspaper in Stuttgart, Germany during the sixties.
Jim served as the Special Assistant to Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio. He finished his career as Senior Vice President of the U.S. Savings and Loan League and as a Political Consultant in Washington, DC.
Jim enjoyed his retirement each day by reading every major newspaper and critiquing the writers and content. He was a talented political observer who possessed the ability to call every major election with uncanny accuracy. An avid fly fisherman, a good trout stream provided his favorite recreation.”
Condolences to Dave Grohl and his family for their loss, but fortunate Jim got to know that he had another Granddaughter before his passing. RIP Jim
