Paul Buckley Griffith ’83

It is with heavy hearts that we write to tell you that our beloved Paul passed away on June 28th in the early hours of the morning. Our family, along with Paul’s brother Joe, were there with him in his final moments. He died peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family. We will miss Paul forever, but are comforted by the knowledge that he now exists in transcendent peace and joy with Christ. 

Over these past weeks and months, we have received so many beautiful messages of love and support from people across the chapters of Paul’s life. We read each of these messages to him and are deeply grateful for the time you all took to show Paul how loved, admired and appreciated he was. They meant so much to him and they brought smiles, joy, gratitude and laughter into our home during a challenging time. We will find comfort in these messages for years to come.

We would love for as many people as possible to mark his passing in person, so weare planning events in both the UK and the US. Paul’s funeral will be held in the UK on Saturday, 16 July 2022. A memorial gathering will be held for Paul in Washington DC on Saturday, 30 July, 2022. Please see below for full details.
