NCMCA’s fifth president (1978-1979) died January 22 after several years of declining health. Ivey L. Griffin, Jr. was ninety-one. In 1957 Ivey and his father, Ivey, Sr. founded Griffin and Son, a masonry contracting company. Later the company name was changed to Griffin Masonry and Tile, Inc adding tile installation to their line of business. In 1987 the company became Griffin Contractors, Inc. recognizing their expansion into general contracting. Mr. Griffin was a founding member of the Western Carolina Chapter of the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA,) which would eventually evolve into the North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association. He served several terms as president of the Western Carolina Chapter and was an MCAA Regional Vice President for a number of years. The Western Carolina Chapter awarded Mr. Griffin with the chapter’s “Founders Award” in 2013. He was a Navy veteran, a volunteer fireman and served terms as a county commissioner for Burke County. Mr. Griffin is the father of NCMCA’s seventh president, G. Alan Griffin, who holds the distinction of being the only MCAA President to come from North Carolina thus far. The family suggests memorials be made to Abernethy Memorial United Methodist Church, P. O. Box 127, Rutherford College, NC 28671.  Read the complete obituary at this link
