Mr. Griggs was born Nov. 26, 1952, in Newport News, Va., to the late Joseph Lee and Emma Carr Griggs. His family said of him, “Bob was a man of few words, but when he spoke everyone listened. He was devoted to his wife of 40 years and was ever supportive and dedicated to the happiness of his three daughters. The love of his grandchildren brought more smiles than we knew he had.” He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.  

Mr. Griggs is survived by his beloved wife, Carolyn Griggs; his daughters, Amy (Ralph) Melton and Kathy Yarborough of Kingsland and Stephanie Griggs of Atlanta; his grandchildren, Mackenzie Melton, Madison Melton and AJ Yarborough; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Besides his parents, Mr. Griggs joins his sister, Shanna Lee Griggs Richardson, and grandson, Luke Allen Yarborough in Heaven.
