William Griggs Jr

Dec. 6, 1938 — March 19, 2013

William Edward “Bill” Griggs Jr., born Dec. 6, 1938, in Marysville, Calif., passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on March 19, 2013, after a brief battle with cancer. Bill moved his family to El Dorado County in 1970 and worked as a master cabinet maker his entire career. Outside of the love for his family, his passions were fishing, camping and 49er football.

Bill is survived by his daughters, Sandra Dorn and her husband, Ross; Cheryl Webb and her husband, Glenn; and Marnell Griggs-King and her husband, Sam. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Ryan, Adam, Kai and Jordan; a great-grandson, Logan; and stepdaughter, Tamara Green and her husband, John and children, Tyler and Erik.

The family is extremely grateful to Snowline Hospice for their care of our Dad during his time of need. Services will be held on March 28, at 1 p.m., at Camino Community Church, 4205 Carson Road in Camino, Calif. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Snowline Hospice, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619 (call 530-621-7820).

His family loved him dearly and will miss him greatly. God speed, Bill. Online condolences may be posted at
