In deep sadness, the family of Chandler Thomas Griffin announce the passing of their child of God on February 3, 2023.
Chandler was born on May 19, 2004 to Mr. Kevin Griffin and Shelley Milne. Chandler suffered a brain injury during childbirth and fought 18 years to be with his family. He was a strong little fighter and a bright and innocent light of happiness to anyone that he met. He made a tremendously special impact on his local community and loving family. He had a special way of making people want to smile and he brought out a raw compassion of love, even from the most hardened of souls. His “kisses” have become a legacy that will be passed on for lifetimes to come.
Chandler is preceded in death by his late grandfather, Tommy Griffin of Cordele, GA.
Chandler is survived by his devoted mother and caregiver, Shelley Denise Geib (John) of Bogart, GA, and father, Kevin Patrick Griffin (Deana) of Epworth, GA.
Surviving grandparents are Robert Thomas Milne, Jr. (Margaret) of Gillsville, GA, Rebecca White Berson (Michael) of Waynesville, NC, Martha Hulsey Johnson (Troy) of Bogart, GA, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins from GA, FL, NC, TX, ME, CT, and WA.
Chandler is also survived by his siblings, Hunter Griffin of Bogart GA, Wade Geib and Jessica Geib of Bogart, GA, Conner Griffin of Blue Ridge, GA, step-brothers, Matt Geib of Bethlehem, GA and Tucker Geib of Hull, GA, step-sisters Melanie Ely and Teresa Henderson of Epworth, GA.
