Ronnie Griffin

September 11, 1943 ~ June 29, 2017 (age 73)

The Piano Brothers

Mr. Ronnie Griffin, age 73, of Marion passed away Thursday, June 29, 2017 at the Solace Center of Asheville.  He was born in Valdese on September 11, 1943 and was a son of the late Oliver Griffin and Lucille Rhoney Eaker of Drexel.  He was a member of Concord United Methodist Church.  Ronnie was retired from Dillard Paper Company where he served for many years as a Sales Representative.  A successful man by any measure, he knew instinctively that success could be determined by more than a career.  He realized that true success was in building loving relationships with those closest to you, especially family and friends, of which he was greatly blessed with many.  His generosity and kind-heartedness was evident to those who were blessed to have known this man and they will all miss him very much.

 

Surviving Mr. Griffin, in addition to his mother, are his wife of 26 years, Louise Griffin of the home; six children, Greg Griffin (Sherry Hunter) of Manteo, Sam Mauney (Lea) of Wake Forest, Ginger Hutchens of Kernersville, Meredith Kleiner (Andy) of Denver, Chad Griffin (Chrissie) of Raleigh and Cory Griffin (Jennifer) of Raleigh; a brother, Dusty Griffin of Connelly Springs; a sister, Cathy Burns of Valdese; ten grandchildren and two great granddaughters.

 

A memorial service will be held Sunday, July 2, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. at Concord United Methodist Church with Rev. Joe Rightmeyer officiating.  The family will receive friends from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. prior to the service at the church.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Care Partners Hospice of McDowell County 575 Airport Road, Marion, NC 28752.
