Kearney, Griffin J. "Griff" - SHELBURNE FALLS  
Shelburne Falls, MA - Griffin Joseph Kearney (""Griff""), of Shelburne Falls, MA, beloved son of Joseph Kearney, born June 21st 2003, was welcomed into eternal life on Wednesday, encircled in the loving arms of his late mother, Michelle Hebert Kearney, and his late grandmother, Peg Kearney.

In his addition to his dad, Griffin leaves behind many who adored and cherished him, including his beloved maternal grandparents Eleanor and Martin Hebert, his siblings Jessica, William, Ashleigh and her partner Grayson, his new mom Caroline Ludvik-Johnson, brothers Liam and Elliot Johnson, his aunts and uncles Ed, John, Elaine, Pete, Mary, Dave, Mike, Mark, Jennifer, Stephen & Amy, nephew and niece Kaden and Savannah, cousins Kyle, Maggie, Jack, Dan, Jim, Jordan, Ava, Jonathan, Caleb, and Allie.
