Re: Loss of a team member

Very sorry to hear of Griffens passing, so young, and so dedicated to the ideals of FIRST, I am sure I speak for Team 122 when I express our most sincere condolences and sympathy to Baxter, the rest of his family and to all members of Team 116.

Re: Loss of a team member

To lose any member of a family, friend, fellow robotics member is a tragic hard to deal with event. All of us in the community of FIRST feel the impact and wish to share our deepest thoughts to the family and close friends that are dealing with this loss.

We are here to support each other.

Re: Loss of a team member

Griffen was one of the greatest men that I have ever known. I only met him once but he was the nicest, funniest, and coolest guys ever. I knew him both through band stories and the few robotics meetings that he came to. We all love him and miss him very much. He will always be in our hearts.

RIP Griffen.

Re: Loss of a team member

When I started working with team 116 Griffin was one of the few students who went out of his way to try and get to know me and make me feel welcome. He was a character, but he always listened to what I had to say. He will be missed.

Here is a link to a local newspaper story about him:

That article was on the front page of the Herndon Observer (and no, we're not THAT small of a town), a testament to how well known he was. His funeral this morning was one of the best attended any of us have ever seen.

Re: Loss of a team member

The death of any young adult is exceptionally sad. The person has gone through so much, yet so much more lies ahead. I only met Griffen a time or two, but he was so, well, vibrant, that I remember who he was. All the comments on this thread confirm my positive impressions of him.

I send my condolences to Griffen's family and team members, and it is wonderful to see that a benefit fund is being established in his name for his team.
