Dale Scott Griffin, age 69, passed away on May 22, 2022, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born on March 4, 1953, in Salt Lake City to Douglas Smith Griffin and Carol Beatrice Griffin.

Dale was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. He loved the Grant 4th Ward (now Brickyard). His mom was his Rainbow Teacher in Primary. He was a Boy Scout and loved going on camping trips with the Brother Hilton, Lansfeldt and Sister Embley.

Dale was a welder by profession and worked in construction the majority of his life. He worked for The Road Home for 10 years and was in charge of the Mens’ Homeless Shelter in Midvale. He received several Outstanding Employee Awards for his work ethic and service. He worked as an apartment maintenance manager for five years repairing old apartment buildings in the downtown area that required him being on call 24/7. He worked at Good Will.

Dale excelled in sports. He loved golfing, tennis, volley ball and ping pong (which he was the champ). His passion was hiking, camping and rock hounding. He loved hiking the Wasatch Mountains, the Uintas and the desert areas of Vernon and Eureka. He traversed his own trails through steep terrain and cliffs. He always stopped and took pictures of the beautiful mountain flowers and streams, along with cougars, deer, raccoons, hawks, falcons, coyotes and snakes.

Dale is survived by Darren Griffin, son, (wife Ashlee); Diane Griffin Pulver, sister; Bryson Pulver, nephew (wife Emily) their children: Anna, Caleb, Adrienne, Ciera, Sophia, Logan; Shawn Brower, nephew; and Sugarpie, beloved Iguana of 15 years.

See you on the Butterfly Trail.


Dale and I were the same age (69). I remember as cousins having fun on occasional family trips, grr we y together at either your Mom and Dad’s house or our house in Mt. Pleasant. As we got older, I didn’t get to see you, but was fortunate to be able to visit with you a few months ago. I got a warm hug from you. I think it’s cool that you are a cousin to us Porters from both your mom Carol (my mom’s 1st cousin) and your dad (my dad’s 2nd cousin). Please say hi to my parents and my daughter Hayley on the other side. We will miss you. Wish I had had more time to spend with you. With love, Helen P. Howell
