Corey C. Griffin Obituary
Corey Christopher Griffin of Scituate, passed away as a result of a tragic accident in Nantucket, August 16, 2014, at the age of 27. The oldest of three children of Robert E. Griffin Jr. and Cathleen A. Griffin of Scituate, he is also survived by his beloved brother, Michael Patrick Griffin; and sister, Casey Mara Griffin. Corey was also the grandson of Frances Griffin and the late Robert Griffin of Scituate and Russell and Carol Bishop, also of Scituate. He also leaves his uncle and aunt, Christopher and Wendy Griffin, and their children, Kelly, Sean and Danny of Hingham; his uncle, Corey, and aunt, DeeDee Griffin, and their children, Courtney, Caroline, Willie and Charlie of Wellesley; his aunt and uncle, Mary Bishop and David McCormick of Scituate; his aunt, Patty, and uncle, Dean Hildreth, and their children, Katie, Craig and Jeffrey of Hingham; his aunt, Peggy, and uncle, Michael Oar, and their children, Michael Jr., Amanda and Christine of Scituate; and his uncle, Russ, and aunt, Lori Bishop, and their children, Kaylee, Jake and Lexi of Scituate. Corey was a proud graduate of Thayer Academy, the Taft School and Babson College, where he majored in entrepreneurship and finance. At each school, Corey was an accomplished varsity hockey player. His business career began at Bain Capital Ventures as an associate and, more recently, he co-founded RANE, an emerging company in New York City, where he served as the Director of Strategic Initiatives. Corey will be remembered for the love of his family and friends, the quality and quantity of his friendships and the limitless vigor with which he pursued life. His passion, spirit and love of his friends was known throughout the hockey world and beyond. After his competitive hockey days ended, Corey brought his passion to the outdoors and particularly to the ocean, where he led many fishing trips and searches for the best waves to surf on the South Shore. Coreys boundless energy, spirit, ability to find something good in everybody, passionate support and leadership of many philanthropic causes, never-quit attitude and the broadest of smiles are his legacy. A celebration of Coreys life was held at St. Anthonys Church, 10 Summer Street, Cohasset, Wednesday, August 20, from 2-7 p.m. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Anthonys Church in his honor Thursday, August 21, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the Griffin family respectfully asks you to consider donations to honor Corey C.
