Peter Griffin Obituary

Peter Henry Griffin, 65, of West Chester, PA passed away Sunday March 31, 2024.

Born May 9, 1958 in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of the late James Henry Griffin and the late Mary Ellen Griffin Hearn (nee McCloskey).

Peter grew up in Drexel Hill, PA and graduated from Upper Darby High School. He went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree from Mount Saint Mary’s University.

He loved going to Strathmere, NJ in the summer and was a lifeguard on the beach there as a young adult. He spent the majority of his career working in insurance sales. In recent years, he was a concierge at Merrill Gardens Senior Living Center, which gave him much pride.
