John E. Griffin, known to his friends and family as “Jack” of Lowell, Massachusetts

WEB pic 300x300Early Sunday morning in late August, our beloved Dad, Husband and Grandfather passed away peacefully on a beautiful Summer Day.

 

We will miss him dearly and keep him in fond memory forever as a patient husband, caring father and kindhearted grandfather.

 

John E. Griffin, born in Boston, son of the late Mary (Powell) and late John Francis Griffin grew up with five younger brothers and an older sister in Dorchester during the 1950’s and 60’s, later entering Military Service in 1967.

 

Upon entering service for his country, which spanned more than 20 years, John embarked overseas, initially to Korea, where he received, among others, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal and Presidential Unit Citation for his service in 1968 and 1969.

 

SFC John E. Griffin’s professionalism and performance were highly praised by his superiors during his military career, where he was considered “an exemplary soldier” with “deservedly high” reviews. He was a focused leader who knew how to articulate his views.  John was a Disabled Military Veteran.

 

In 1969, John was assigned to duty in Germany where he met his beloved wife, Gabriele.  2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of their long and happy marriage which saw the family move from Kansas, abroad to Turkey, where they enjoyed some of the happiest times together, back to Germany and finally to the US in Massachusetts, his home state.

 

John will always be remembered as a dedicated father to his children.  He endeavored to provide a safe harbor for his family, shedding no task to properly provide for them.  We will be forever thankful for that.  As will his grandchildren, for whom Opa was the greatest grandfather one could wish for.

 

He was a very helpful, empathetic and kind man.  And, despite all of the challenges life threw at him, he always kept his sense of humor and positive outlook.

 

John officially retired from the United States Army in 1987.

 

He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife, Gabriele Griffin and their children, John, Axel and Mary, and seven grandchildren, Eila, Eloïse, Ava, Theo, Elli, Chloe and Anja.

Nathan “Nate” Recco of Nashua, NH

Recco web 1live streaming picture 300x300Nathan Ross Recco, 26, of Nashua, NH joined the Angels unexpectedly on Monday August 3, 2020.

Born in Lowell, MA on August 10, 1993, and raised in Dracut and Tyngsboro, Nathan had resided in New Hampshire since 2013. A 2012 graduate of Greater Lowell Technical High School, he specialized in Metal Fabrication and was a member of the Football Team during his Freshman and Sophomore years.

Nathan was employed as a Welder/Pipe Fitter with Industrial Piping and Certified Welding Co. Inc. in Woburn, MA and valued the friendships he developed with his co-workers. Nathan was currently enrolled in Pipefitting Certification Education at the Andover, MA Campus of the Gould Construction Institute and possessed OSHA-10 Certification.

Nathan was an avid car enthusiast and enjoyed restoring antique trucks and muscle cars.  His interest in cars and trucks began in his toddler years and grew to become not only a devoted hobby but a finely honed skill. In 2018, he purchased his dream car, a black 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker which he considered to be his “pride and joy.” Five years prior, he had purchased a 1983 Chevy C-10 truck which he invested time in restoration efforts, having recently sold it to a close friend. As a tribute to Nathan’s life, this vehicle’s restoration will be completed. In addition, an engine which he rebuilt will be placed in his best friend’s vehicle as a remembrance of both their friendship and shared interest.

Nathan was an animal lover and especially close to the family’s Yorkshire Terrier, Mahalo. As a child, he participated in the Dracut Youth Soccer Association and was a proud member of the winning team of his Italian Family’s Annual Bocce Tournament at age 10.

Nathan was known to always put the well-being of those he loved ahead of his own needs or desires. He was quick to offer his assistance, knowledge, advice and support without hesitation. He loved with all of his being and he possessed a determination like none other. He would visit his grandmother daily and the bond they shared was visible to those who were close to him. He never failed to bring a smile to someone’s face when they were down and his incredible sense of humor and intoxicating laugh will never be forgotten. He was a loving son, a protective grandson and a loyal friend and his family is dedicated to keeping his memory alive through acts of kindness within the world, a gesture which Nathan exhibited throughout his life. In continuing Nathan’s generosity to all of those he encountered, his family arranged for him to pass on the gift of life through organ and tissue donation via New England Donor Services.

He is survived by his mother, Michelle (Recco) Dinan and her husband, Joshua of Nashua, NH; his beloved grandmother, Claudette M. Maria of Dracut, MA; his Godmother, Helen (Cogliano) Lyons of West Palm Beach, FL; his half siblings, Skylar, Brenden & Kayla Olsen of Sylvania, GA, as well and many family and friends. In life, friends often are considered family and this was true of the Taylor Family of Tyngsboro, MA; David, Lisa, Damion & Amy (Taylor) Anderson.

He was predeceased by his father George Gordon Olsen who died on July 3, 2010 and his grandfather, the late Michael Recco, Jr. who died December 9,2003.

Visiting hours will be held on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 from 6:00 P.M to 8:00P.M. with a service following at 8:00 P.M. at the DOLAN FUNERAL HOME 106 MIDDLESEX ST. CHELMSFORD.

Sophath Loyn of Lowell

Loyn Pic 300x300Sophath Loyn, age 36, unexpectedly passed away on July 29, 2020 with his love, Sam Khoun, beside him. Sophath was born on November 18, 1983 in Thailand. He is survived by his parents, Som and Peng; his children Alexia, and Damien; his brothers Sokhom and Sokhoun; And sisters Alexius, Sophoan, and Sophanny. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Sophath was always the selfless man putting other’s needs before his. He always loved to watch sports, and spend quality time with his family and friends. The best part about him was that he was the jokester of the family.

As of now the silence is painful, times at a pause. No amount of words combined can come up with words to express the heartbreak and tears that have been shed and to come. We close our eyes in hopes this is all a dream. Mere thought of you gone is still a nightmare. Your laughter with the kids, Your sincere smile, your daily nuisance will be missed. Your love, caring acts, and selflessness will go unmatched. Pranks and jokes will not be the same without you running away laughing.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend his visitation on Friday, August 7th from 1:30PM to 2:30PM at Dolan Funeral Home, 106 Middlesex St. Chelmsford, his Funeral procession will follow to Trairatanaram Buddhist Temple, 21 Quigley Ave. Chelmsford, MA 01863.
