JOHN W. GRIFFIN, SR.
February 14, 1938 - October 28, 2014

LOUISBURG - John Wayne Griffin, Sr. died on October 28, 2014 at his home in Louisburg. He was the son of the late Grover and Glennie Griffin of Fayetteville and son-in-law of the late Staley and Lois Strickland of Louisburg. He was also preceded in death by three brothers: Neal, Robert, and Grover Griffin.

John is survived by his wife of 49 years, Faye Strickland Griffin; his son, John Wayne Griffin, Jr. of Raleigh; daughter, Staley Griffin Medlin and husband, Jay of Louisburg; and by three unbelievably precious granddaughters: Allison Grace Barlow, Mackenzie Noel Griffin, and Lacey Nicole Medlin. Mr. Griffin is also survived by his stepmother, Elizabeth Griffin; one brother, Dr. Stanley Griffin (Faye) of Fayetteville; and one sister, Margaret Griffin Fischer (Jack) of Swampscott, Massachusetts; and 12 nieces and nephews.

Mr. Griffin was a member of Louisburg Baptist Church and served both as Chair of the Advisory Board and as a deacon. He graduated from Campbell University and East Carolina University and operated One Hour Martinizing in Greenville before opening Village Cleaners in Louisburg in 1970. In 1990, he purchased and operated Strickland Electric Company in Louisburg until the time of his death.

Funeral services will be conducted by the Reverend Reggie Rushing at Louisburg Baptist Church on Saturday, November 1, at 11:00 a.m. Burial will immediately follow the service at Lancaster Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to Louisburg Baptist Church, P.O. Box 730, Louisburg, NC 27549 or to the charity of choice. The family is being served by Strickland Funeral Home and will receive visitors at the home.
