Timothy L. Griswold
Oct. 18, 1955 — Feb. 15, 2019
Timothy L. “Whitey” Griswold, 63, passed away unexpectedly on Friday,
Feb. 15, 2019, after a courageous battle following multiple injuries and
complications from a hunting accident on opening day in November 2018.
Tim was born on Oct. 18, 1955, in Milwaukee. On Sept. 8, 1984, he was
married to his best friend and fishing partner in life, Renee Spaulding
Griswold. They grew together in marriage through all of life’s trials
for 34 years. They were blessed with three beautiful children Jessica,
Jenny and Clint, whom he adored with every breath.
He was an award-winning and record-setting hunter and fisherman who
shared his love for all sports with everyone he knew.
His faith led him to the deep woods and open waters of northern
Wisconsin, where he felt closest to God. He “wore his heart on his
sleeve” and treated everyone with respect and love.
He will be deeply missed by his devoted wife, Renee, and his loving
daughters, Jessica Griswold Radtke (Ryan) and Jenny Griswold. In 2011,
he lost his son and forever hunting buddy, Clint Griswold, whom he is
now giving the strongest and most passionate bear hug ever.
Now reunited with his loved ones who have gone before him, Whitey is
survived by countless friends and family members who will remember him
