Charles F. Griggs, 81, of Canton, beloved husband of Joan N. (Quirion) Griggs passed away on May 9, 2018. Born in New York City, the son of the late William Hughes and Eva Griggs. Charles spent most of his working career in various aspects of manufacturing and, prior to his retirement, worked at Kuhn Employment Opportunities in Meriden, Connecticut. He was a jack of all trades and enjoyed spending time at home in his favorite recliner watching his much-loved TV programs. However, his greatest joy was his family and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He leaves behind his wife of 55 years; Joan N. Griggs of Canton, his daughter; Sandi Perillo-Simmons and her husband Michael of Guilford, his son; Timothy S. Griggs and his wife Kathi of Wetumpka, Alabama, his grandchildren; Sarah and Matt Perillo, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers; William and Robert Griggs and his sister Eva “Tinker” Ogden.
