Obituary for Scot Ward Griffin

Scot Ward Griffin passed away on December 8, 2023 after a major cardiac event that occurred in his home. Born February 14, 1971 Scot was the son of Narvin and Jackie (Ward) of Dresden, TN. After graduating high school, Scot became a highly decorated U.S. Air Force Gulf War Veteran who proudly served his country from 1989-1998. It was in the Air Force where Scot met Elizabeth (Dean), his wife of 31 years. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, Scot continued honing his skills as a mechanic. He worked for BMW, Volvo, and finally CarMax. One of his greatest joys was sharing his extensive knowledge of all things mechanical with everyone and anyone who wanted it. However, nothing made Scot happier than being father to Joshua and Amanda. His happiest moments were his times spent as “Pappy” to Joshua and Lauren’s (Cancelosi) son, Aidan. Scot was proud of his family, his southern roots, his military service, and his work as a mechanic.

Being a big man, Scot had a very commanding and intimidating presence about him. Yet, he was the most gentle “teddy bear” one could ever meet. Scot was a man of his word and you always knew where you stood with him. He was a natural leader, mentor, and role model for many. To make him smile certainly was a challenge, but very rewarding once you did. Scot gave of himself freely and never expected anything in return, often putting everyone else’s needs ahead of his own. This loving father and grandfather, dedicated husband, dependable co-worker, trusted confidant, and man who always had your back was taken much too soon and will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him.
