Floyd Thomas “Pete” Griffin, 94, of 117 Blue Bird Lane, Hamlet, passed away, Monday, July 20, 2020, at Hospice Haven, Rockingham.

He was born May 24, 1926, in Scotland County, son of William L. and Mattie Brown Griffin.

“Pete” was a mail carrier for US Postal Service, a veteran of US Army and a member of Springhill Wesleyan Church. He married Nellie Hodges on July 14, 1948, and she passed away October 24, 2009.
“Pete” loved his family but loved his Savior, Jesus Christ even more.

A Graveside Service will be held on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 10:00 AM at Smith Family Cemetery, on Smith Cemetery Road, Hamlet. Due to Covid-19 mandates we request, face coverings, social distancing and limited number. This is for the safety of our families as well as our staff.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Nellie H. Griffin; brothers, William F., Paul and Ray Griffin; and sister, Cora Herndon.

Survivors include his daughter, Kathy Richardson (Roger) of High Point; sons, Rodney Griffin and Eddie Griffin both of the home; sisters, Mollie Thomas of High Point and Lois Stewart of Charlotte; seven grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren.

Pete’s own word say so much about his life; I have so much love for my family, but Jesus comes first. I’m just a sinner saved by grace; I’ve done wrong a lot of ways, but all that has been erased by Jesus my Savior. On my knees I cried for mercy and forgiveness and he set me free! I am his and he is mine; when he was on the cross I was on his mind. When I should have been on the cross he took my place. He loved us so much he gave his life for us. (found in a book written by Mr. Griffin)
