Johnny Samuel Monroe Griffin

February 4, 1979 — October 11, 2021

Johnny Samuel Monroe Griffin was born on February 4, 1979 in Hot Springs, Arkansas to the union of James Williams Griffin, Sr., and Shelia Gale Jones Griffin.

He accepted Christ at a young age and attended Delight High School. He possessed a strong work ethic and worked as a construction laborer. By all accounts he was a “jack of all trades”, but his passion was mechanics. He used his skilled hands to repair, fix and replace parts on motorcycles and cars. He was often the “go-to” man for repairs. Johnny proudly proclaimed that he was too good to be a labeled as a “shade tree” mechanic.

A natural outdoorsman; his favorite hobby was fishing. Johnny was the life of the party. One of his greatest joys was spending memorable moments with relatives and friends, both young and old. He will live on in the hearts of his loved ones and friends. He possessed a friendly spirit and never met a stranger. He meant what he said, and said what he meant. His natural wit and humor could never be duplicated.

Family, as well as friends, will miss his strength, smile and love, but will never forget his spirit and compassion. He passed into the Lord’s embrace on Monday, October 11 2021, in Benton, Arkansas. He was preceded in death by his father, James William Griffin, Sr.
