 Robert Griffith

Funeral services for former Round Rock Mayor Robert Griffith were held at 10 a.m. Friday, May 25, at Palm Valley Lutheran Church. Griffith died Sunday, May 20.

Griffith was Mayor from 1978 to 1979, and served as a City Councilmember from 1973 to 1978. The Round Rock Public Library building was named after Griffith and his wife, Helen, in 1999. The City Historic Preservation Commission honored Griffith as a Local Legend in 1998.

"He's one that left a legacy that will be remembered forever," Mayor Alan McGraw said. "You don't have to struggle to find something good to say about him because he made such a huge difference in the community and in people's lives."

Griffith’s service to the community began with his career as a teacher, coach, junior high and high school Principal for the Round Rock ISD. He was active in many civic organizations including the Kiwanis, Round Rock Volunteer Fire Department, YMCA of Greater Williamson County, Texas Independent Bankers Association, Round Rock United Way, Palm Valley Lutheran Church and the American Red Cross.

The Round Rock Leader posted a full article on Griffith's passing on May 23.
