Delmus Griffis

Nobles Funeral Home and Crematory announces the funeral services for Delmus Olen Griffis, age 89, of Ocala, Florida who stepped from this earthly life Wednesday, October 2, 2019 into his eternal home with his Lord and Savior.

Delmus was born February 20, 1930 to parents Oscar Raughty and Linnie Lavinia Griffis in K’Ville, Georgia.

He is survived by his devoted sons, Douglas Griffis (Sherra) of Lakeland, Florida, Chris Griffis (Cheryl) of Ocala, Florida and Warren Griffis (Connie) of Ocala, Florida; eight grandchildren; ten great grandchildren; two sisters, Joy Polston (Wes) of Cottondale, Florida and Jantile Brown of Savannah, Georgia; along with two brothers, Harrell Griffis (Joyce) of Columbia, Mississippi and Denvis “Dink” Griffis (May) if Zolfo Springs, Florida.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Earl and H. Quinton Griffis (Lavonne); sister, Myra Carter and his beloved wife of 70 years Hazel Griffis.

Family, friends and acquaintances alike all knew of his strong faith and love for the Lord.  He always shared his faith and trust in Jesus Christ with others. 

On March 5, 2018 when God called his beloved wife Hazel home, although he was heartbroken, he trusted God and leaned on him for strength and peace that surpasses all understanding.  Since that day he has yearned for the time when God would call him home and they would be reunited.  Although he dearly missed his great love, he stood strong and continued to share his testimony and faith with everyone who crossed his path.

The family takes comfort in knowing they are together again, walking the streets of gold and we know we will all be reunited again someday when God calls us to make that final journey home.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 11am at Memorial Freewill Baptist Church in Surrency, Georgia.

Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

Visitation will be held one hour prior to funeral services at the church.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Hospice of Marion County, PO Box 4860, Ocala, FL 34474 or Memorial Freewill Baptist Church 3335 Holmesville Road, Surrency, GA 31563.
