Mr. Griffin, 64, of Alexandria, passed from this life on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at his home.

Kenneth was born May 1, 1954, in Bamberg, Germany. He is the oldest of seven children born to Luitgard and Felton Griffin. As with many military families, the Griffins moved often and this created a lifetime bond between Ken and his siblings. His family ultimately settled in the Rockhill area and Central Louisiana has been his home ever since.

Ken graduated from Dry Prong High School and enlisted in the Army during the Vietnam era. Returning home to Central Louisiana, he then enrolled in Louisiana College where he earned a degree in Medical Technology. He began work for his future father in law at his sporting goods business and later worked in his restaurant and catering businesses.

Ken loved everything about the outdoors. His many adventures included trips on his Harley to Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, and the Eastern seaboard. He was an avid hunter and loved his excursions to the Louisiana coast to fish for redfish. His most treasured fishing experiences were with friends who were new to the world of fishing.

Ken was well known throughout Central Louisiana for his beautiful ironwork. He had a high standard for his work and would rather lose a job than do it incorrectly. He ultimately bought Sportsman's Paradise and merged the businesses together. Ken used his businesses as a ministry and always tried to employ people who were down on their luck.

With all his accomplishments, Ken's greatest source of pride was his family. Ken married Cindy Stagg in 1979 and they had two children, Thomas Felton Griffin and Kelley Griffin Miglicco. Ken was the proud grandfather of 7 grandchildren: Mattison Bernard, Logan Bernard, Thomas Griffin, Tripp Miglicco, Cooper Miglicco, Camille Miglicco and the late Amelia Miglicco. Ken was much loved by his nieces and nephews who always knew he would provide all the fun at family occasions.

Ken is survived by the previously listed family including wife and children as well as his mother, Luitgard (Gertie) Griffin; siblings, Donie Griffin, Barbara Griffin, Cynthia Price, and Randy Griffin.

He is predeceased by his father, Felton Griffin, and siblings, James Griffin and Thomas Griffin.

In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alexandria Salvation Army and to FBC Main Street Ministry. We are grateful for all those that aided in taking such amazing care of Ken over the last 3 years. Words can't describe the out pouring of love that has been shown to his family. Ken's legacy is embedded in this earth deep and wide and he will never be forgotten because he touched people's hearts. He was a source of love, mercy, truth and strength.
