April 29, 1945 — June 19, 2022

Fredrick Harold Griffin, 77, of Smelterville, ID, passed away on June 19, 2022 at the home of his daughter in Post Falls, ID. Fred was born on April 29, 1945 in Vancouver, WA, a son of the late Fredrick Harold Hermann and Rena Butterfield.

He enjoyed reminiscing with friends and family about the “good old days” and in his later years, loved to go fishing. Fred was always working on old cars, and when he wasn’t doing that, he was poking around at the thrift store, whittling, and cross-stitching. Fred was also a collector of old guns and knives.
