  • Grumbles Williams Benefit

    Posted by Harvest Goodrich on 11/5/2023


    The Grumbles' life was turned upside down on July 22, 2023, when they found out that Geoff had a large brain mass in the lower right portion of his brain. After meeting with the neurosurgeon, Geoff underwent surgery to remove the tumor on July 24, 2023. The pathology report showed that Geoff’s tumor is Grade 4 Glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain cancer. It’s treatable, not curable. In August, Geoff began radiation and chemotherapy to fight the cancer. 


    On August 16, 2023 , Ryan and Tracey’s oldest daughter, Jordan, 33 and her daughter Lacy, 2, were in a devastating car accident. Jordan and Lacy spent the afternoon at the Williams house and while pulling out of the Whispering Hollow neighborhood, they were hit. Jordan was gone instantly and thankfully Lacy survived with only bruises from her car seat. Jordan not only leaves Lacy, Ryan and Tracey, but also her younger siblings Cade, Colton and Kiersten. The Williams will always find a way to honor Jordan’s legacy and keep her memory alive for their precious granddaughter, Lacy.
