He graduated from W. H. Adamson High School and the University of Texas in Austin. He completed his formal education at the UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas where he was a member of one of the earliest graduating classes. He enjoyed serving his community as a doctor of Internal Medicine mainly in Big Spring, Texas and also in Dallas, Fort Worth and Washington D.C. where he served in the U.S. Army. He was a Fellow of The American College of Physicians. He was a member of Arlington Heights United Methodist Church where he enjoyed singing in the choir and honoring God through music. He and Anne sang with the AHUMC choir in England and at Carnegie Hall.

Bob lived his life fully and with no regrets. He is loved by his family and friends and will be remembered for his kindness and gentleness to all. He was a generous encourager and a quiet leader by example. Bob's family is grateful for the tenderness of those who provided care and dignity to him during the years in which he needed extra help. His family is also grateful to his wife, Anne, for being the best caregiver anyone could ask for. She was steadfast and unwavering in giving him the very best. Our faith gives us the assurance of knowing that Bob has run the race with endurance that was set before him; he has kept the faith; and now enjoys the prize of eternal life in the presence of his Lord, Jesus Christ. Bob was preceded in death by his mother and father Mary Evelyn and H.S. Griffin of Dallas. Bob is survived by his loving wife, Kathleen Anne, with whom he shared more than 60 years of marriage; sister, Mary Elizabeth, and husband, Dick Corbin, of Houston and South Fork, Colorado.
