Obituary for Ralph Stanley Griffin

Ralph Stanley Griffin, resident of Saraland, AL, was born Dec. 31, 1933, in George County, MS and passed away on Nov. 1, 2019 at age 85 in Mobile, AL. In his words, he “met a sweet young lady (Barbara Gregg) in Starkville” and he married her in 1956. Ralph is survived by his wife of 63 years, Barbara Gregg Griffin; five children; Janice (Richard) Nassar, Kenny (Evelyn) Griffin, Cheryl (John) Moore, Stanley (Frances) Griffin, and Beth (Don) Sealy; 14 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren (and one in the oven); and his beloved dog Chypoo. He is preceded in death by Otto and Launa Griffin (parents), Nolan Carroll Griffin (brother), and Ralph Stanley Griffin Jr. (infant son). Ralph graduated from Mississippi State College in 1956 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. Ralph retired from Akzo Nobel Chemicals in 1999 after 35 years of service. He served two years in the Army from 1957-1959. He was a very active member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Saraland, AL since 1965. He never met a stranger, and everyone was always greeted with a firm handshake or hug. Ralph will be greatly missed by his friends, family and community. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Arrangements by Forest Lawn Funeral Home, Saraland, Alabama.
