B 18 Oxford/Orion Progress Edition 2016 Sparks-Griffin Funeral Home has a legacy of service in Lake Orion

Sparks-Griffin Funeral Home is a name in the Lake Orion community synonymous with compassion and service.

The 88-year-old family business began in Pontiac in 1927 and has been a fixture in Lake Orion since 1972. They have been recognized as the best funeral home in Lake Orion by area residents. The honor is richly-deserved Greg Griffin operates the Lake Orion location of Sparks-Griffin, at 111 E. Flint Street. Greg is the third generation family member who chose to serve his community. He has been licensed since 2002.

The family has a valued legacy earned by service at its Pontiac and Lake Orion locations. “In 1972 my grandfather Glenn Griffin and

his son Tom purchased the Allen Funeral Home in downtown Lake Orion.” Greg Griffin said. “Together they brought the family tradition that was started in Pontiac back in 1927.” Greg has been involved in the family business since he was a child. After he graduated from Western Michigan University and was licensed, he naturally returned home.

“After spending my first 10 years working

with the families at our Pontiac chapel, I joined Dad in Lake Orion at the end on 2011. That seems like yesterday. Reconnecting with the many families that I have known for so many years and meeting so many more has made the profession that I chose much more of an honor.”

Greg Griffin understands the importance of a dedicated staff in helping a family through their difficult times.

“Sharing in the journey that we go through as we deal with losing someone special is one of the most difficult experiences imaginable,” he said.

“I am truly grateful to the families in our community for trusting our family to lead their journey with care and friendship. Dealing with the many questions that arise can be overwhelming.

“Please be encouraged to call or come by if you would like to sit down and talk about the many options that are available or discuss any particular questions that you may have.” To contact Sparks-Griffin, call, 248-693- 8336 or visit
