Obituary

David B Griffith also known as Dave Griffith, 78 years of age died May 19, 2022. Leaving behind his loving wife Janet Griffith.

Dave was born in Altoona PA, then move to Seneca falls NY, Where he graduated from Mynderse Academy.

Dave spent four years in the Air Force, five months of that four years was spent in Vietnam clearing out a jungle that had been sprayed with Agent Orange. The men had to use machetes to clear the jungle, as big equipment would draw the attention of the Viet Cong. The U.S wanted a runway for their planes to come in and out so that they could be prepared to attack Viet Cong, The US government and VA denied the mission as it was top secret and was before the war had started. The Agent Orange had a lasting effect that would eventually cause the death of Janet and Dave's 2 daughters who died early on in life as well as the pancreatic cancer that caused Dave to die a very agonizing painful death. He will be missed very dearly.
