Jack DeWayne Griffin Sr.

  • Chief
  • Ruleville Volunteer Fire Department
  • Mississippi

  • Year of Death: 2020

Jack was an extremely loyal and dedicated man to both his family and friends. He was born in Ruleville, Mississippi, where he was a lifelong resident. He passed on September 21, 2020, while battling COVID-19. Jack was 67 at the time of his passing.

He worked for Ruleville Manufacturing for 35 years as a machine mechanic. He served with the Ruleville Volunteer Fire Department in Mississippi for 40 years, the last five years as chief. He served his community with unsurpassed bravery, dedication, and passion.

Jack was single with a very big, caring heart. He could make just about anything out of things he had around the house. Jack was a hard worker and was always willing to help someone that needed help. Jack loved to go hunting (almost any kind), fishing, and spending time with family and friends. I miss my dad every day and struggle with his loss to this virus.

Jack is survived by his daughter, Jackie Williams (Jeremy); son, DeWayne Griffin; grandsons, Ezra Smith, Wyatt Williams, and Django Griffin; granddaughters, Destiny Miller, Gypsy Griffin, and Gemma Griffin; sisters, Coralee Morris, Nina Faye Poe (Oscar), and Eloise McGowan (Earl); brother, Billy Joe Griffin (Faye); and a host of nieces and nephews that miss him dearly. Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Alton and Merle Griffin; brothers, James Griffin and Huey Griffin; and sister, Joan Griffin.
