Robert P. (Bob) Griffith, Jr

May 26, 1958 – May 18, 2020

Bob Griffith died on May 18, 2020 at Taylor Hospital. Bob was the only child of Robert Griffith, Sr, and Dorothy Griffith. and was born at Lankenau Hospital. He was a graduate of Ridley Sr. High School, class of 1977, Delaware County Community College and Holy Family College. Bob served as Code Enforcement Officer for Ridley Township, and as Fire Marshal. Bob was a past Fire Chief of the Swarthmore Fire and Protective Association, and a long-time member of the Holmes Fire Company.

Bob adored his wife Joan Marie (nee Rinkers) and was proud of her work as a nurse on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They celebrated their 39th anniversary on May 16th, 2020. Bob was a devoted dad to his daughters Courtney Ann and Megan Marie, and always encouraged them to live their best lives. He showed them the way, with his own passions and interests. He was known as the “feis dad” for his engagement in the world of Celtic music and Megan’s Irish dancing. He was a fervent fan of the Flyers and the Phillies, and he shared his love for photography with Courtney. He was fascinated by the Navy’s Blue Angels, and always looked forward to Friday nights at Campbell’s Boat House. A firefighter must have at least one dalmatian, and Bob was a dog dad to two, Angus and Tess.

Bob will be sadly missed by Joan, Courtney, and Megan, the extended Rinkers family, friends he made in Ridley and beyond and by the entire Delaware County Fire Service. In lieu of flowers Contributions to go to

Bob was my first friend. He lived a few houses down on Michigan Ave. and we went to Ridley High together. He introduced me to firefighting, CB and Ham radio, and chess. We double dated to roller skating, and to the Junior Prom. Think through thi s makes me realize that he was a real influence on a lot of my life. Thank you Bob. You will be missed.
