Terry Griffith

July 30, 1947 — December 9, 2022

Terry Griffith, 75, of Pocatello passed away on December 9, 2022.


Terry was born in Eugene, Oregon, but moved to Portland at any early age. He attended Woodmere Elementary School and Marshall High School in Portland. Terry joined the United States Navy in 1966 and was stationed in San Diego, California for two years following enlistment. He then boarded the aircraft carrier Oriskany which was based in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan. He spent two years on the vessel during the Vietnam War and made a joyful return home in 1970. One year later, he met and married the love of his life, Sharon. The two shared 51 wonderful years together prior to his passing.


Terry pursued multiple careers in sales in his life. He acted as the head of security for Montgomery Park Complex in Portland prior to his retirement in 2010. After retirement, he moved to Brookings, Oregon. Finally, he relocated to Pocatello in September of 2022 to be closer to family.


Terry was a dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served as a missionary for a number of years.


Terry was an avid and life-long fan of the New York Yankees baseball team. He was also passionate about photography and held a special place in his heart for dogs. Terry was most at peace when in nature, and he specifically loved the Oregon Coast.


Terry is survived by many loving family members and friends. Among these are his wife, Sharon Diane Griffith; two sons, Shawn Leo Griffith and Tony Lee Griffith; two daughters, Sara Beth Curtner and Melissa Anne Holter; sister Carroll Ragan; and brother, Randy Griffith; half-sisters, Stephanie Rogers and Julie Krimbel; and grandchildren, Nicole Gardner, Jacob Curtner, Joshua Curtner, Jarom Curtner and Logan Griffith.


Terry is preceded in death by his father, Darrow Griffith, and his mother, Evadne (Dell) Krimbel.
