James Elmer "Popeye" Groves
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1939
Death: Jul. 3, 2004
Clay County
Missouri, USA

Aged 64
Retired Kansas City Missouri Police Officer
He was born to William and Grace Groves of Mexico, MO, and lived there until he joined the Air Force, serving four years. He followed his older brother John's footsteps, and joined the KCMO Police Department where he served with pride for 30 years. While he worked for the Police Department, he earned a Masters Degree from Central Missouri State University. He was also elected to serve on the Police Credit Union Board for 12 years. He helped in the Car Care Ministry at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church by spending many Saturdays changing oil. James always was willing to lend a helping hand to whoever was in need. He held many titles in life: "son" to William and Grace Groves; "brother" to Alvernia Kennish, Rogue River, OR, John Groves, who preceded him in death, Thomas Groves, Mexico, MO, Charles Edward Groves, Modesto, CA; "husband" to Bonnie Reeve Groves; "father" to William Guy Groves and Cami Carleen Groves, all of Kansas City, MO; "uncle" to many; "friend" to all; but his favorite title was "Popeye" because that was what his grandchildren called him. Shelby Grace Groves and Carter James Groves were the twinkle in his eye. Jim will be missed by many. (Arr. McGilley Antioch Chapel, 816453-7700)
