Bobby Eugene Griffin, 70

Bobby Eugene Griffin, 70, of Savannah, passed away February 1, 2023 at Candler Hospital.

Mr. Bobby was born in Adel, GA March 19, 1952 to the late Vernon Griffin and Allie Mae Warren Griffin, one of five children. 

He was self-employed as a mechanic and worked alongside his son, Grif, for many years. 

Mr. Bobby was an avid fisherman and hunter in his free time. He was always a loving family man of strong Christian faith. He attended Westside Christian Church in Bloomingdale. He doted on his family, and most especially, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was a hard worker and “tough as a lighter knot”. He saw value in many things others thought were worthless. One man’s trash was another man’s treasure in his eyes. He was known for being trustworthy and never meeting a stranger. He was blessed with the gift of gab and made friends wherever he went. 

In addition to his parents, Mr. Bobby is preceded in death by a sister, Dorothy Allen.

Surviving are his wife, Katherine Griffin; children, Kristy Griffin, Bobby “Grif” Griffin, Jr. (Jennifer) and Tim Griffin (Brooke); step daughter Belinda Ogelsby; grandchildren, Ryan (Nikki), Taylor (Jason), Jenna, Bobby “Griffin” Griffin III, Jackson, Elena, and Elijah, BJ, Kathy, Ashley, Amber (Donald); great-grandchildren, Colton, Ava, Lane, Cohen, Farrah, Taylor, Krysta, Marissa, Jada, Dalton, Abigail, Bella, Skyler, Luka, Madelyn, Cillian, Atlas, Jayden, Peyton, Emilia; siblings, Gerald Griffin, Tommy Griffin and Betty Sue Herring; and dear friend, Dr. Jenecia Perry. 

Visitation was held Sunday February 5, 2023 from 4-6pm at the funeral home. Funeral services were held Monday February 6, 2023 in the chapel of the funeral home with Rev. Leonard Daugherty officiating. Burial will follow at Westside Memorial Cemetery.
