On Tuesday, April 30, 2024, Brian Griggs, a loving son and father of two children and papaw, passed away at age 60.

Brian was born Sept. 10, 1963, in Crawfordsville, to Douglas and Nancy (Myers) Griggs. He graduated from Southmont High School in 1982 and attended Indiana State University in Terre Haute, where he studied communications.

He loved spending time with his family and was guaranteed to be the most ornery one at any gathering. He loved all things sports. He was an avid fan of the Indiana Pacers, Fever, Notre Dame and Dallas Cowboys. His passion was tracking each of the teams wins/losses and all major stats. In his spare time he would play video games and loved simulation/civilization building games.

He was preceded in death by his father, Doug, and his aunt, Janet McKinney.

He is survived by mother Nancy; uncle Laren; brother Jeff (Margaret); two children, Alan and Courtney; grandchildren, Liam and Asher; several cousins and nephews; and niece.

Visitation will be held Saturday, May 4 from 2 p.m. until the time of the service at 4 p.m. at Sanders Priebe Funeral Care, 315 S. Washington St., Crawfordsville. Cremation will follow the service.
