He was preceded in death by his mother, father, brother: Darrell Griffitts, and aunt: Ethel Ragains Anderson.
Twinkie never met a stranger and would strike up conversation with anyone. He loved riding his Harleys. He loved drag racing and racing his Mustang. If you met him on the road in passing you most likely would get the two finger Twinkie wave. He had a laugh like no other and loved being with friends and family to just hang out and have a good time.
Until we meet again, roll on driver.
Following David’s wishes, cremation was chosen and no formal services will be held.
