Robert Micheli Griffin, 58, from Caroline County passed away peacefully in his home after a very quick battle with Colon Cancer surrounded by his loving wife and his most prized possessions; his music equipment that he loved so much.
Robert had a very tough childhood as a Foster Kid. He was very fortunate to be taken in by a loving family the Delongs’ in New York City to which he kept in contact with throughout his life. His life truly began when he met his wife Marlene Griffin at working at a grocery store called Pathmark in New York. She became his whole life and when she had his daughter Melissa Griffin, he made sure she had the life he never had due to the circumstances he was raised on.
Robert enjoyed music. He had a large musical collection and even conducted music himself using mainly pianos and his second love of his life, his red Epiphone guitar. These are possessions he will pass to his Grandchildren Cayden Heidenescher, Alaric Heidenescher, and Jordan Stearns. Along with music, Robert was a Sports Fanatic. He loved Tennis, basketball, baseball, and football.
The family has Robert’s service as a TBD date and will be a private matter. The family would like to thank everyone who was involved during this tough time.
All donations may be made to St. Jude’s Hospital, as that foundation was ways his passion.
