Grantsville residents know Doc for his mileage as a walker,
but those older will
remember his solid contribution to the community
Rymer "Doc" Law had a 90th birthday celebration Saturday. Grantsville area
residents know Doc for his waking, but those of us with some age remember him
as a solid Grantsville citizen and businessman, who once worked for Francis
Hardware and later operated his own store, Law Hardware.
He is best remembered for his down home demeanor, storytelling and attitude
toward life. "He was a great role model," said one of his sons.
He is among the handful of Grantsville residents remaining from the early 1900's
who dug their roots deep in Sunny Cal, married, worked and raised their family,

His four sons sat with him reading birthday wishes. In addition to his sons, Doc
has eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
