Richard W. Griffin, 82, of Belfry passed away on Feb. 8, 2018 at his home.

He was born on July 27, 1935. Richard was raised near Peterbrough, New York on a dairy farm. He moved to Colorado where he was a custom home builder. Eventually he moved to Montana where he raised Black Angus cattle.

He had a great love for his family, farming, ranching and the outdoors.

He is survived by his sons: Richard, Bill (Courtney), Dylan; his daughters; LuAnn, Laurie, Brenda, Amy (Mike), and Lisa (Dan); 17 grandkids; 11 great-grandkids; and brothers, Richard and Steve. Richard is also survived by the mother and grandmother of his family, Kathern.
