John also sold insurance, real estate, and farm equipment during his career.  He was a faithful parishioner of Holy Family Parish, Marion where he served as an eucharistic minister, lector, usher and had been active in the Knights of Columbus.  John had an amazing memory, and a heart of gold.  He volunteered his time to many worthwhile groups including AA and Al-Anon and he was an avid reader.  John had unconditional love for his family and friends.  He enjoyed basketball and football from his earliest days at Emporia State and Kansas University.  John is survived by his wife Mary of Marion; children John (Jessica) Griffith of Emporia, Bill (Stephanie) Griffith of Fruita, CO., and Michelle Griffith of Tucson, AZ; eight grandchildren and his sister Michelle Siegfried of Topeka.  John passed away on Tuesday February 14, 2023, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Marion.  He is preceded in death by his parents.  A prayer vigil will be held on Thursday February 23rd at 5:30 p.m. at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, Marion.  Rosary will be prayed on Friday February 24th at 10 a.m. at the church followed by his Mass of Christian burial celebrated at 10:30 a.m. by Father Isaac Coulter.  John will be laid to rest in the Griffith Cemetery, Cedar Point.  Yazel Megli Funeral Home, Marion is serving the family.  Memorial contributions in John’s name may be directed to Father Kapaun Legacy Fund or Good Shepherd Hospice.  Please sign his online guestbook and leave a memory of John at www.yazelmeglifh.com.
