David Griffiths

david_griffithIt is with great sadness that we have to report the death of David Griffiths on 26 September. David spent most of his working life with Marconi Command and Control and latterly BAE Systems.

He was a member of the Marconi Veterans Association Committee from May 2007 until ill health forced his resignation in March 2011.

One of his great loves was sailing, in later years sailing out of Tollesbury Marina.  If you would like to make a donation in David’s memory or send a message then the family have established a memorial fund at the RNLI, a charity David keenly supported throughout his life. The link is here:
