Charles Laverne Griffith was born March 30, 1949, in Keokuk, Iowa, the son of Sidney and Ruby (Saunders) Griffith. He was a Navy Veteran and served in the Vietnam War. He later married the love of his life, Terry Sweeney.  

He had a deep love for comedy and humor. You could always catch him in the company of his friends and family telling jokes. He loved to cook and tinker around the house. He dedicated his life to Terry and especially his family. He gave everything to withhold the “Griffith Pride”. 

Charles is survived by his wife, Terry; his granddaughter, Kelsey Cook; and siblings, Vincent (Teresa) Griffith of Fridley, Minnesota, James (Kim) Griffith of Zimmerman, Minnesota, and Clarice (Todd) Griffith of Gurnee, Illinois. He was preceded in death by his parents.
