Bobby Lee Griffith was born June 9, 1930, in Denton, son of the late Evan Leon and Artie Marie Decker Griffith. Bob married the former Barbara Lou Faries, and they celebrated more than 60 years of marriage. He had many hobbies, which included gardening and a great love for animals of all kinds. Bob also loved children and spending time outdoors. One of his greatest pastimes was gambling whether at Horseshoe or Winstar. In fact, every Tuesday at his home, he and a few of his friends would play dominoes and on Wednesday at the Plantation Inn in Granbury, he would meet and play poker. He looked forward to Tuesday and Wednesday until just recently.
Griffith owned his own trucking company, and after retiring he and Barbara obtained their real estate licenses and they began to sell real estate. Additionally, he volunteered his time with the Texas Forest Service.
Bob was preceded in death by his son, Bobby Lee Griffith Jr., in 1985; two grandsons, Shane Sullivan in 2008 and J.P. Sullivan in 2009; his parents; and brother, Scooter Bill Griffith.
Survivors include his wife, Barbara Griffith of Weatherford; daughters, Brenda Lyn Brown and husband, Cole, and Becky L'Re Potter Lynes and husband, Kelsy, all of Keller; grandsons, Jordan Potter of Keller, Hayden Potter of Weatherford and Bryson Potter of Euless; great-grandson, Kaden Potter of Keller; and a host of loving family and friends.
