MOMEYER - Jimmy Elliott Griffin, Jr., born May 25, 1972, at age 49 passed away after a courageous fight against colon cancer on December 31, 2021, in Alexandria, VA. Jimmy never let his cancer diagnosis slow him down. He maintained a positive attitude, worked full-time throughout his illness and showed more concern for his wife than for himself.
