John Griffith V was born to John Griffith IV and Angie Rossi, Manheim, PA on June 17, 1994. He is one of the most remarkable sons, grandson, brother, boyfriend, and friend that one could ever know. I couldn't have been more proud of his accomplishments.
John enjoyed weight-lifting and was very dedicated to lifting in his preparation to be a key player during the 2011-12 football seasaon. He was also a member of the wrestling and field and track teams for Manheim Central..
Friends of John talk about his sense of humor, his beautiful smile, his love for the gals, and the tenderness he showed to his siblings and pets. He idolized his dad … they were like two peas in a pod, many times embattled on the 360X Box, both being very competitive!
As for me, I miss him so much that words cannot express the pain I feel. God only knows how his mother, father, and other siblings are handling his absence. John has been, and will always be sorely missed. Rest easy, fly high my beautiful grandson! ALWAYS!!!
Love you …
P.S. I do hope others will join in writing stories about John and the wonderful moments he shared with you as his friends and/or family.
