Lieutenant Commander Griffith was killed in a crash of a Naval A-6A Intruder in the Gulf of Tonkin shortly after being launched from the USS Enterprise for a night mission over North Vietnam. He was awarded the Navy Cross and Silver Star. Griffith has been memorialized in the naming of Griffith Hall, a facility at the Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida where he received his aviation training.
