NACHI Mourns Loss of Inspector

The loss of a friend and comrade is no easier in civilian life than it was in the military.

Dwayne Griffin (Griffinspect Home Inspections LLC, Coeur d?Alene) touched the hearts and lives of not only his fellow members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (, but also those of thousands in North Idaho and beyond. Known as a fair and gentle father, husband, builder and avid outdoorsman, he shared his inspection knowledge and skills with any who would ask. I consider it a privilege to have known him as a friend.

A memorial service for Dwayne will be 2 p.m. Oct. 12 at Yates Funeral Home, Coeur d'Alene Chapel (744 N. 4th Street); our hearts reach out to his wife, Teri, and their family.
