David Griffith

October 1, 2021 - 6:40 pm

We are deeply saddened by the passing of David Griffith, a volunteer journalist whose gentle presence and persistence is familiar to many KBCS listeners.

In the words of David’s spouse Pat, “David found his work at KBCS really fulfilling. He enjoyed digging into community issues. He was trained in engineering but he loved journalism.”

David’s engineering career brought him and Pat to Seattle in 1974 from Richmond, Virginia. He worked for Pacific Northwest Bell (Lumen), Boeing, and the Washington Utilities Commission.

In addition to his volunteer journalist work at KBCS, David served on the board of the ACLU of Washington for 12 years.
