Daniel Thomas Griffiths

May 18, 1951 – September 21, 2022

After a courageous battle with multiple myeloma our dearly beloved brother, Dan Griffiths, passed away peacefully with family and friends at his side at Victoria’s Royal Jubilee Hospital. Dan will be deeply missed by his family, many friends, and the church he devoted his life and whole heart to serving.

Dan loved being a drummer and got his start in 60’s and early 70’s rock bands in Victoria, followed by drumming in christian worship bands until his passing. He was called to a life of ministry as a musician and bible teacher, drumming and teaching at Trinity Christian Centre for many years and becoming Director of their bible college for a time before moving on to serve at New Life Community Fellowship for the last 25 years as an Assistant Pastor.

Dan is survived by his sister Pauline, brother Eric (Laurie), nephews Jordan and Timur and many loving cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held at North Douglas Church, 675 Jolly Place, Victoria, BC on October 29th at 2:30 pm.

Memorial donations can be made to the Malawi Mission online at http://newlifevictoria.com.

    My heart is saddened at the loss of Dan. I will always remember his heart of service towards people and his Love of God. I remember him coming to see me when I was very sick and praying for me as I lay in my bed. I also will always remember him playing the drums at Church. Heaven I know has no suffering and the weary body is no more it has been replaced with Peace, Love and Joy…Rest in the arms of your Lord. Ever remembered ever Loved.

  3. I thought I’d give Dan a call to get together for lunch or dinner. His phone was not in service. I drove to his apartment and buzzed D. Griffiths and the intercom said “not in service”. I was concerned. Then I went online to find Dan’s obituary from September 21, 2022.
    I’m so ashamed to realize a friend is gone. I knew he had battled cancer and with chemo therapy, he felt he was in good shape. I hadn’t been dedicated to keeping in touch and time has slipped away. So now I know he’s gone. I can still remember
    Dan and my brother starting up a car club, The Traction Masters. He played drums in Peace Jeep, a very good local band from Sidney. What I do remember is this conversation over lunch. When prompted, he said he was practicing his drumming by playing along to The Byrds Greatest Hits album. That’s the album. I’ll miss and remember Dan Griffiths, a sweetheart of a gentleman.
