Ronald L. Griffin

February 21, 1946 – February 4, 2020


Preceded in death by his parents, David and Mary Griffin and son-in-law, Christopher Conley.  Survived by wife, Karen L. Griffin; son, Shawn Griffin (Sharon); daughter, Dawn Conley; four grandsons: Colin, Keenan, Aiden and Griffin; sister, Bonnie Dixon (Don); nieces, nephew, other friend and relatives.

Ron was friend to many during his life.  As a young man he enjoyed swimming as well as photography, traveling, fishing, bowling and golf throughout his life.  He had a love of fast, classic cars, especially the muscle cars.  During the Vietnam conflict, while stationed in the Philippines, he served his country as a photographer in the United States Air Force.  He possessed the gift of gab and made friends wherever he went and irritated some as well.  He always had an answer for you, whether it was correct or a very convincing story he made up.  He will be waiting for you on the other side with a big smile and new tales to tell.

Family will receive friends Friday, February 7th from 5pm to 7pm, at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church (3405 S. 118th St.) followed by a VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm.  MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Saturday, February 8th, 10am, Mary Our Queen Catholic Church.  INTERMENT: Calvary Cemetery with military honors by So. Omaha Am. Legion Post 331.  Memorials will be directed by the family.

    Oh Karen, how shocked and deeply saddened I am upon learning of Ron’s passing. I have such fond memories of working at Zerchers those two years. I pray that you are doing well and will cherish all the wonderful memories. May God bless and comfort you and your family especially in the days ahead. This wonderful photo of Ron truly captures his spirit and essence. I’m so sorry Karen.
    Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15
