Bob Grigg's "Bytes of History"


Bob Grigg (December 8, 1932 - July 25, 2016) was born in Wakefield, MA, attended the Colebrook Center School through the eighth grade, graduated from Lyndon Institute in Lyndon Center, Vermont, enlisted in US Navy (1952-56), Clark Univ. (1956-60), then embarked upon a career as a cartographer, finishing as the Information Editor for Hammond, Inc. of Maplewood, New Jersey.

After returning to Colebrook, Bob became involved with the Colebrook Land Conservancy and the Colebrook Historical Society, which ultimately led to his being named Municipal Historian for the town of Colebrook.  For the past ten years Bob has written a weekly column in the Winsted Journal under the byline "Historic Bytes."

Bob was married to Anna Grigg for the past thirty years. His daughter, Robin, is married to Rick Tillotson.  They all live in Colebrook.
