Bryan Adam Griffin

March 2, 1947 ~ October 20, 2023
Bryan Adam Griffin, 39, passed away on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, with the love and support of his family at his side, at University Upstate Hospital, Syracuse. With a generous spirit, Bryan had registered as an organ donor, so his passing brought the renewed possibility of life to several others waiting for an organ, including a heart. Knowing that his heart will beat on in another brings needed solace to his family.  Bryan was born on December 5, 1983, in Arcadia, FL to Harris and Vicki Griffin. In 1993, his family relocated to Hamilton, where he attended Hamilton High School and graduated in 2002. Bryan held a passion and love for motorcycles, inspiring him to relocate to Orlando, FL to attend the Motorcycle Mechanic Institute. He received extensive training in motorcycle repair and obtained numerous repair certifications, including the coveted Ducati specialist certification. Due to his qualifications, Bryan was in high demand as a tech, enabling him to hone his skills all over the southeast. Bryan loved his family and often returned to New York to be with them. He would always make the visit memorable. He loved serving as grill master and would prepare wonderful meals for his family on the back yard grill. He also loved being on the water – whether boating, paddle boarding, or wakeboarding – and enjoyed fishing with his dad and brother. Bryan had a passion for dogs, counting them among family, especially his most loving and loyal companion Ace, whom he raised from a puppy. Bryan was known by many as a gentle giant, as his large stature belied an immeasurably kind and generous heart, and his love for family and friends had no boundaries.

UN condemns apartheid in South Africa

“On November 6, 1962, the United Nations General Assembly adopts a resolution condemning South Africa’s racist apartheid policies and calling on all its members to end economic and military relations with the country. In effect from 1948 to 1993, apartheid, which comes from the Afrikaans word for “apartness,” was government-sanctioned racial segregation and political and economic discrimination against South Africa’s non-white majority. Among many injustices, Black South Africans were forced to live in segregated areas and couldn’t enter whites-only neighborhoods unless they had a special pass. Although white South Africans represented only a small fraction of the population, they held the vast majority of the country’s land and wealth.”
