Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello I'm John T. Griffith, born in Oceanside California, a Viet Nam War M.P. Corps U.S. Army Veteran and a former CHP Officer. In September 2002, I assisted the National Archives Center, Missouri, in replacing lost and destroyed U.S. Army files. It was during that research project I discovered Find A Grave, wanted to be a part of it's concept and became a member. I have always had a passion for history and the people who have lived it. People in everyday life who through the needs and demands of their times shaped the world. I believe each day is a gift and the best part of any day is that day. I'm also a professional musician and have shared the stage with many named artists. In addition, I'm a vintage guitar expert have contributed, plus co-wrote for many vintage guitar books and articles in Vintage Guitar magazine about the subject. Plus a photographer, writer and historian, for the San Diego Reader. I will gladly transfer any of my bios to relatives or folks with a concerned interest. I, my wife Mary and our Dachshund "Timmy", reside in Vista, California. Thanks and best regards, John

Mr. John "J-Cat" Griffith,

Thank you for transferring the memorial page of Dorothy Law Nolte (Find A Grave Memorial# 12336032) to my stewardship. I will leave in place the outstanding biographical information and photograph you have placed within it, and when time allows, I will provide links between her memorial page and the memorial pages of her family members.

Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you for all the great bio's I have run across on FindAGrave of Veterans. It helps to know more than just a name.

This latest one (for me) of Richard Irwin Fiske just shows how unpredictable life can be. I imagine he lost some friends in that Pearl Harbor attack. And yet years later more healing of the heart happened with his embracing one of his former enemy.
