Anthony G. Griffith passed away peacefully on Sunday August 28, 2016 at the Northwest Medical Center in St. Albans, Vermont. Tony was born on September 29, 1935. He was pre-deceased by his parents Gerald and Marjorie Griffith, and his brothers Lee and Zeke Griffith and his sister Marjorie Wood. Tony was a long time resident of Milton where he was an active member of the Milton United Church and the Milton Senior Center. For several years he helped to care for his older sister in their home. Tony was an outgoing, kind and gentle man. He loved talking with people and was always quick with a one liner or one of his trademark expressions. He made friends easily and was beloved by anyone who got to know him. Tony worked for many years as a ware-houseman in Bridgeport, Connecticut until retiring and moving to Vermont.

He is survived by his nieces and nephews Jonathan Wood and his wife Wendy of Jeffersonville, Vermont, Bronwyn Sisco and her husband Gary of Lexington, Kentucky, Vivi Griffith and her brother Garth Griffith of Austin Texas, and Alexander Wood and his wife Fey of DuPont, Washington. For the last few years Tony was a resident of the St. Albans Health and Rehabilitation Center. The family would like to thank the staff for their outstanding care. Many thanks as well to his fellow residents and friends that truly enriched his life and became his family. There will be no service. In lieu of flowers or cards donations can be made to the Milton Senior Center, 46 Middle rd. Milton, VT 05468.
