George Elijah Griffith Obituary
George Elijah Griffith, 84, passed away on April 15, 2013, following a sixteen month battle with cancer (multiple myeloma).
Born April 2, 1929, in Tatem, New Mexico to Robert and Mary Griffith, George grew up in the southwest.
George graduated from Newberg Union High School (Newberg, Oregon) in 1948. Following his term of service in the U.S. Army, George entered the retail automotive business in the San Francisco Bay Area (Hayward), where he eventually operated his own dealership for 20+ years.
George's integrity as a used car dealer is still well known in the San Francisco Bay Area. George and his wife, Doris, retired to Lodi in 1989 where he enjoyed being near family, and he was active with his motorhome club, a water exercise class, and restoring mahogany wooden boats and classic cars.
George is survived by his wife of 58 years, one daughter, one son, seven grandchildren, and one great grandchild. His surviving family is comforted by seeing and hearing George's profession of faith in Jesus Christ, (1 John 5:11-13). Funeral arrangements are private.
George's physical remains will be placed at Lodi Memorial Cemetery. Lodi Funeral Home is assisting with arrangements.
