Obituaries

Patrick D. Griffith (72-75) died in Mallorca, Spain on November 24, 2017 aged 59 following a long illness. His ashes are scattered in the Bay of Palma. The song played on his last journey was ‘Always look on the bright side of life.’

At Pangbourne, Patrick was in Macquarie and rowed bow in the 1975 1st V111. His partner for the last 14 years of his life was Maria Dominguez. She writes: “Patrick was born in Dublin and spent his childhood in Cobh. He always spoke with great pride of his years at Pangbourne. After the College, he went into the Merchant Navy. In the mid-1980s he moved ashore to Palma de Mallorca and began a new career as a captain and manager working on private yachts including MY Arkan, MY Shaha and MY Bakshish.

In 2006 he moved to Binissalem, one of the centres of the wine industry on Mallorca, and founded his own company Larkside Marine Services. He had no children of his own but he was like a father to mine, Jose. His passion was always boats, rugby, a good steak and a cold beer. He enjoyed the little things in life and the company of his friends.” On his OP record at the College it notes that he volunteered to work with a youth sail training scheme in Mallorca called Joves Navagants de Balear.
