Former proud GA. resident and avid Bulldawg fan, Michael Griffin, age 67, died July 28, 2021 at Floyd Medical Center. Mike was born on August 18, 1953 in Floyd County. He was preceded in death by his parents Lonnie and Dorothy, sister Debbie, and daughter Alicia. Mike is now sitting down at the card table in the heavens playing a game of spades with those loved ones that passed before him, his dad Lonnie greeting him with "waiting on ye". He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Melecia, His brother Anthony, four sons: Chad, Steve, Mark, and Brad; ten grandchildren: Blake, Devan, Easton, Hannah, Kayla, Justin, Josie, Jeremy, Savannah, and Tyler; along with 11 great grandchildren. Mike had 3 loves of his life: his wife, his kids, and his guns... not necessarily in that order either. You would think Mike had a nose the size of Texas with the way he had a remarkable ability to sniff out the best bargains within a 200 mile radius. Even with the deal of a lifetime he would turn on the Griffin charm and end up with an even better deal. Mike has now landed his best deal yet; an eternity in Heaven. Congratulations and rest in peace. Memorial service will be held at 3:00 PM on Sunday August 1, 2021 at Good Shepherd Funeral Home with Dr. Billy Rabern officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 PM until service hour on Sunday at Good Shepherd Funeral Home, 2750 Shorter Ave. Rome GA. 30165. Parnick Jennings Sr.'s Good Shepherd Funeral Home has charge of the arrangements.
