Obituary for Thomas Mike Griffin

Thomas Mike Griffin was born to Mildred White Griffin and Thomas Griffin in Gurdon, Arkansas April 27th (or 28th, depending on who you talk to) 1950. He was known to his friends and family as Mike, but Thomas to phone solicitors. In his youth he lived in Lander, Wyoming and Leadville, Colorado and was an excellent athlete in any sport he played. He was a coal miner in Wyoming and a logger in Colorado and northern California before his aptitude in math led him to surveying in Southern California. Mike was a member in good standing in the Operating Engineers Local 12 in Pasadena, CA for 31 years. He was married for 10 years to Fina, had two children and remained friends with her until his death. He was a generous man with a good sense of humor that made sure his kids always had good shoes on their feet and his grand children got toys on his birthday. He loved TV, animals, prime rib, antacids and, in his later years, he perfected his own burrito recipe. He died in his home in Lucerne,CA July 6th 2018. He is survived by his kids; Joe and Amy, and his grand children; Anna and Joey, and his brothers; Carl, Dick and Jim.
