STAR • Jerry Lee Griggs of Star, Idaho, left this world in the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013.

Jerry was born Jan. 10, 1945, to Jasper and Esther Griggs of Castleford, Idaho. Jerry was a Christian, a cowboy, a police officer, a truck driver, a heavy equipment operator, a huge Boise State fan, and an all around good guy. He played basketball for Castleford High School and served two years in the U.S. Army. Jerry loved the Lord, his wife and his family. He made friends wherever he went and blessed us all with his frequent phone calls.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Raymond, J.D. and Onel; and his sister, Dorothy Cook-Wuest.

He is survived by his siblings, Reva (John) Brewer, Hershel (Theresa) Griggs, Jim (Barbara) Griggs and Glenda Britz; his wife, Kathy Griggs; his daughters, Shannon Albano of Spokane, Wash., and Katrina Griggs of Twin Falls, Idaho; his stepchildren, Michael (Pam) Mitchell, Shannon (Joey) Campos and Seth Mitchell; as well as 13 grandchildren, two great-grandsons; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Jerry’s life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Eagle Christian Church, 100 Short Lane in Eagle, Idaho. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family on Jerry’s memorial webpage at
