Mr. Griffin was born in Charlestown, son of the late Frank and Mary A. (Magrath) Griffin. He was raised in Charlestown and Chelsea.

He enlisted in the US Army during World War II, was assigned to the 275th Infantry and campaigned in the Rhineland and Central Europe.

He was captured in Germany in January 1945 and was first imprisoned in Stalag IX-B in Bad-Orb, where conditions were notably the worst of any POW camp.

Only 160 of the 300 prisoners chosen survived the 50 days at Berga. The fatality rate in Berga was the highest of any camp where American POWs were held.
