Funeral, Interment Of Unaccompanied Veteran Jan. 15


James H. Griffin


Rivera Family Funeral Home in Española is announcing the funeral and interment of an unaccompanied Veteran, James H. Griffin, who passed away, alone in his Los Alamos, New Mexico home, on September 9, 2019. He was born on April 7, 1932.

Griffin will be escorted from Rivera Family Funeral Home of Española at noon Wednesday, Jan. 15 and taken to the Santa Fe National Cemetery for burial with military honors at 12:45 p.m. All are encouraged to attend both the procession and the burial.

Griffin does not have any known living next-of-kin; therefore, the on-site representative of the Española American Legion Post 17 plans on accepting the United States flag on Mr. Griffin’s behalf.

Rivera Family Funeral Home works with local community and fellow Veterans service organizations to ensure that NO Veteran is EVER left behind.
