Charles Kevin Griffin Jr.
Charles Kevin Griffin, Jr., 42, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at his home in Pineville, La. Known to many as Kevin, or KC, he was born Oct. 10, 1970, at Fort Devens, Mass., the son of Carolyn Boland Griffin and Charles Kevin (Chuck) Griffin. He spent his younger years traveling with his family and living in New England, and later moved to Albuquerque, N.M. He attended the University of Texas and the University of New Mexico before joining the Air Force, where he served in the Special Forces as a Ground Forward Air Controller during Desert Storm. In 1996, he moved to New Orleans, La., and worked as a Navigational Support Engineer with Western Geco-Prakla, a division of Schlumberger. Kevin and Trista H. Beckman were married in New Orleans in 2001 and the family moved to Baton Rouge, La., in 2005. Kevin was a loving son and father, and loyal friend to many. His boyish spirit, generosity, intelligence and sharp wit captivated many who loved him. Kevin is survived by his son Colin Beckman Griffin and daughter Teagan Hope Griffin, and their mother Trista Beckman Griffin; his mother, Carolyn Boland of Hancock, N.H.; his grandmother, Grace Boland of Central Falls, R.I.; and his sister Grace Griffin and brother Sean Griffin, both of Albuquerque.
