Jake Randall Griffin Obituary

Jake Randall Griffin went to be with the Lord on Friday December 29, 2023. He was born on March 31, 1943 in Colquitt, County GA.  He was the fifth of six children of the late John Alton Giffin and Lilly Alean Plymale Griffin.  He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 58 years, Hilda Grace Brooks Griffin, his parents and his brothers Lester Douglas, Marvin Eugene, Benny LeVerne and James Lamar.

He is survived by his daughters Pamela (Thomas) Styer of Boston, GA, Sharon (Arnold) Leslein of Quitman, GA.  Grandchildren, Megan (Travis) Styer, Kristen (James) Morris, Danielle (Joshua) Enden, Austin Leslein, Jake Leslein and Preston Leslein; great grandchildren John Morris and Logan Enden; sister Myrna (Lewis) Warga; sister-in-laws Therlisel Griffin, LaTia Brooks & Cheryl Brooks and several nieces and nephews.

Mr. Griffin was a member of Northside Baptist Church and he worked for 50 plus years for Napa Auto Parts. He was the owner of Griffin Auto Parts in Quitman GA in the late 70's and early 80's.  He was a numbers man, he could recall any number from any of his or his coworkers' sales from the day to help them locate a part.  He had most of the part numbers memorized.  Most of his life was spent working but after he retired he loved to be on the go, just going to Walmart was a favorite outing for him.  He spent his retirement taking care of his wife, our sweet Mama.  When she needed more care, they moved into The Presbyterian Home together and he was right beside her until Jesus called her home. He then became an avid walker. He would walk outside twice a day and he would walk the halls while visiting with the friends that he had there.  Some he had known his whole life and others he had come to know while he was there.  

Our Daddy was a good honest man.  He taught us to always be honest and do the right thing. He loved to read the Bible and go to church and encouraged his family to do the same. He was a funny man and loved to joke and laugh. He loved to share every joke he heard or read. Baseball (Atlanta Braves) watching westerns, Bible trivia and solitaire on his tablet were his favorite pastime. He worked hard to take care of his family and we are so blessed to have had him as our Daddy.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 6, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. at Northside Baptist Church with Rev. Larry Harris officiating. Interment will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery. The family will be receiving friends one hour prior to the service at the church.
