Keith Bion Griffin, born November 29, 1950, passed away peacefully on August 4, 2022. An adoring father and grandfather, loving husband, faithful disciple of Christ, gifted storyteller, even-handed businessman, and purveyor of many ice creams, Keith always made his family his very top priority. Whether Sunday dinners, rides on construction equipment, a hike in the Arizona mountains, or just a drive to the grocery store, Keith made each family member feel important around him. His work as business owner, bishop, scoutmaster, and owner of any tool you might ever need to borrow also brought him great joy.
He was welcomed home to heaven by his parents, Edna Lenora Libby and Heman Evander “Van” Griffin, as well as sister Nancy Nelson and granddaughter LaRae Schindler. Keith’s tradition of kindness, generosity, hard work, and good humor will be treasured by his surviving family; siblings Elva LeSueur and Richard Griffin, wife Tannis Thompson Griffin and their children Sarah Griffin Kanno, Camille Huber (Landon), Rachael Griffin (Matt Welker), Noel Valderrama (José), Spencer Griffin (McKenzie), and Anna Schindler (Weston), as well as 9 beloved grandchildren.
