Greg Griffith – Running and Gunning with the Angels – August 26th, 2011

As written on page 13 in the Hollidaysburg/Blair County Hometown Magazine October 2011 Edition:

Greg Griffith went home to be with the Lord on August 26, 2011.  He had survived 19 months with stage 4 pancreatic and liver cancer.

Greg had a wonderful last month of his life.  Booker Moore, President of L.R. Webber and Associates orchestrated a wonderful Greg Griffith night at the Altoona Curve on August 16th.  The Pittsburgh Pirates and Rob Egan of the Altoona Curve donated silent auction items and all proceeds that night at the curve and raised $2500 for the Greg and Cathy Griffith Family Foundation, for pancreatic cancer research.

Also, J.T. Tidd, of Edward Jones, and Jack Collins, of Link Computer, both members of the Hollidaysburg AM Rotary Club, presented Greg with a Paul Harris fellow on August 22nd.  Greg was not able to attend and his son Jordan accepted the award on Greg’s behalf.  Greg was able to view the entire night via FaceTime on an Apple iPad while Janet Moore and Milissa Stubbs used their iPhones.

Greg died in his son Jamie’s arms peacefully and now a beacon of light shines on us all from above and by the stripes of Jesus we are all healed.
