Griff enlisted in the Army out of Catalina High School and honorably served our country in Vietnam. Upon his return, he began a 44-year career with Haskell (now Mission) Linen.
Griff always loved home improvement projects (big or small) and transformed many houses into homes for his loved ones. After retirement, he caught the off-roading bug and earned the nickname “Danger Bob” on the trails.

He is also is survived by sisters, Nancy and Susan; his brother, Keith; and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, Ivan and Geneva; his brother, Lawrence and his sister, Helen.
