Burl built our house in Aquilla, TX back in 1986. He started July 4th. We'll never forget that. We slept in the house our first night February 14, 1987. Its a beautiful home to us and our family. Kenny, his son, built our fireplace. Burl had a great bunch of contractors that contributed to the home we have. We loved his sense of humor, pride in his work, and love of country. Our sincere condolences to his entire family. We know he was proud of all of you. May he rest in peace. Dr. Ray & Julie Jensen

Although I never met Mr. Griffin I can tell by the stories Todd has told me he was a great man and wonderful father. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

I have such great memories of Mr Griffin (he made me call him Burl) and spending so much time at his house hanging out with Todd was something I’ll never forget. I loved his wisdom and humor. I’m sure I hold the record for eating the most deer breakfast sausage. Burl would always remind me of how much sausage me and Todd ate every time I saw him over the years. God be with the Griffin family and Mrs Griffin especially during this time.
Love always,
Kellis Sampson
