Griffin Nathan Lamar died tragically on August 5th, 2016 in the arms of his loving parents Nathan Daniel and Nicole Halsted Lamar of Danvers. For two years, Griffin brought incredible joy to his two sisters, Addison and Margaret, the Halsted and Lamar families, and his large extended network of family and friends. Griffin’s infectious smile and joyous laughter brightened the life of all who knew him. His skill with a lightsaber was well beyond his years and everyone that met him wanted to run their hands through his incredible hair – much to his irritation. He completed the Lamar family and the hole left by his passing can never be filled. The Lamar’s are incredibly grateful to their friends, family, and the greater Danvers community that have reached out to support them during this excruciatingly painful time. Private services were held for the family on August 13th, 2016.
Griffin’s life was itself a gift, and to honor his memory, the Lamar family wants to support the cause that brought Griffin into their lives: ADOPTION. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to Giffin’s Gift, a fund which aims to help potential adoptive families with the initial financial burden of the adoption process.
