San Bernardino, CA
Another murder in the homicide-riddled City of San Bernardino has taken the life of neighborhood champion, caretaker and community leader John Henry Griffin.
Although San Bernardino police investigators made an arrest in his murder not much is known about the motives of his alleged killer.
Griffin, a former member of the Black Panther Party, was a highly respected leader who worked to assure a safe and vibrant community; in addition to being a vocal champion of the Delmann Heights Community Center. Griffin was firmly committed to assuring the Center remained a safe-haven for the area’s children. His work was known and well regarded by local officials as well.
A memorial service for Griffin is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 29 at the Temple Missionary Baptist Church, 1583 W. Union St. in San Bernardino.
