Kenneth Martin Griffin

February 19, 1942 — October 10, 2023

Kenneth Martin Griffin, St. George, UT passed away peacefully October 10, 2023, surrounded by family. He was born in Logan, UT on February 19, 1942 to Saville Griffin and Virginia Wiltse. He was second oldest of four children raised in Providence, UT.

In January of 1960, before graduation he enlisted in the Utah National Guard. After graduation he was sent to basic training in Fort Ord, CA. After finishing basic training, he was sent to Fort Sill, OK. He was released on December 24, 1960 and just three months later, enlisted in the Air Force and served active duty for 10 years and retired from active duty in 1970. While on active duty he served overseas in Okinawa, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Italy and Greece.

He then applied for a job opening with the Electrical Workers of America. After serving 4 ½ years in the apprentice program he was awarded a Utah State Electrician License in 1975 and also joined the Air Force Reserves at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, UT. He spent 15 years in the reserves, as well at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, CA and joined the Electrical Union in CA when he lived in Menlo Park, CA. He then retired from both in 1995. In 2002, he moved to St. George, UT to be closer to family in his retirement years.

He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latteray-day Saints. He was a High Priest, Home Teacher, and loved working with the youth in the Boy Scouts of America and going on camping trips. He spent a lot of time at the genealogy center working on his family history. We will forever remember Kenny for his kind heart, always willing to help those in need, whether be financially or a helping hand. He helped many ward members with service and helped not only his nephews for missions but also missionaries in his ward. You have touched many hearts and you will be greeted at the gates of heaven by your family, friends and your many dogs.

Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents, Sister In-law Betty Griffin, nieces Brandy and Wendy Griffin and is survived by his brothers Wayne Griffin, Johnny (Janice) Griffin and sister Judy (Lester) Neilson and his nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Spring Garden Memory Care and nursing staff, enhabit Home Health & Hospice and Dr. Muse for all of their care and dedication. Would also like to express gratitude to his nephew, Raymond Griffin, for overseeing his care in his
final years. He was dedicated to ensuring he received great care and spent many hours with him going to Dr. Appointments, hospital stays, and spending time with him.
