He also helped get Osage National Golf Club started in his role as a member of the Miller County TIF board. Gridley was also a dedicated community servant, having filled several elected and administrative roles in Lake Ozark, including a stint on the Board of Aldermen.
He was 84 years old when he passed away Sunday. Services are scheduled for 6pm at Jubiliee Church in Kaiser.
