Eddie (Buddy) Griffin was born November 15, 1929, Baker County, Georgia.  His parents, David Elijah Griffin and Estelle Kelly Griffin, have preceded him in death.  Buddy married the love of his life 63 years ago, Juanita Lambert Griffin.  They became one and raised their family and enjoyed life together.  Buddy was a welder by trade.  Buddy Griffin never met a stranger.  He loved to ride horses and motorcycles.  Buddy was crazy about the rodeo.  He loved to be in the garden and watch his tomatoes and pepper plants.  He was a man of vision.  He said, “If I dreamed it or seen it, I can accomplish it”.   Buddy loved to have people visit in his home.  He always took them to the kitchen table to talk and fellowship.  His favorite colors were red and yellow; he hated gray.  That was like his personality, bright and full of color!  He was a great storyteller and always had a quote.  Quotes like, if you don’t believe me, just live on.  A wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, Buddy will be deeply missed.  He lived the kinda life that most men only dream of.
