Dominique J Griffith

July 10, 2023


Dominique J. Griffith, 25, of Harrington, DE passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 10, 2023. He was the son of Dana M. Baker and Joseph E. Griffith.

Dominique was a 2016 graduate of Lake Forest High School. He played on the high school’s basketball team, and then went on to play semi-professional basketball for the Delaware Eastern Shore Generals. He worked as a delivery driver. Dominique had a love of music since childhood and was forging a career as a musical artist, having produced 5 albums on iTunes.

Dominique was a fan of Cincinnati Bengals football, but his biggest joy in life was being a dad, and devoting time to his family.  Though he was straight forward, he had a smile that would light up a room. He could be described as a bright, out-going, leader, who was a hard worker, loving, sweet, kind and ambitious. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

In addition to his parents, Dominique is survived by his children; Kamalei Griffith, and Dominique J. Griffith, Jr.; brothers, Joseph A. Griffith and Ja’von Gibbs; sister, Taryn Lynn Griffith; maternal grandparents, Steve and Debbie Baker; aunt, Dannielle Wilson; uncles, Shawn Scott and Steve Baker, Jr.; bonus parents, Michele & Antonio Haigler and their children; close family friend, Dontra Bolden; and a host of cousins, extended family and countless friends.  

A Celebration of Life will be held privately at the family’s discretion.
