He was the Director of Data Processing Systems for North American Phillips before his retirement in 1997. James Griffin was a devoted father to whom family always came first. Even when times got tough, which they often did, he kept on going and got the job done. He was an avid New England Patriot fan, who loved to talk football or discuss the merits of different teams and how they stacked up. He loved playing cards and going to the beach, and taught all of his children and grandchildren a great love for both of these. He is survived by his beloved daughters and sons, Margaret and Chhaya Griffin, Colleen Doyle, Honora Griffin and James Griffin, son-in-law, Thomas Doyle, and his cherished grandchildren: Brendan MacBride, Kelly MacBride, James MacBride, Katie Doyle and Dakota Griffin. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Memorial Visitation will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on Friday, January 4 at the David T.
