Aaron Jacob "Jake" Griggs

Son, brother, grandson and friend, left on his mission March 24, 2013. He was called home by his loving Heavenly Father after a long courageous fight with cancer.
Jake is the son of Aaron and Leisa Fairbanks Griggs of North Logan. Jake was born Jan. 21, 1995, in Logan, and was currently a senior at Sky View High School.
He had a love for learning, especially for calculus and physics as he aspired to become a math teacher. Jake enjoyed English and finding new words, and playing word games were exciting.

Football and basketball were his favorites sports to play. Jake was a huge BYU fan. Jake loved his scriptures and serving in the gospel. He liked finding new quotes, like one by Malcolm S. Forbes, "Victory is sweetest when you have known defeat" but Jake's favorite was by Walt Disney, "Keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." Jake had an open mind and curiosity for learning new things and loved sharing it with others. Jake enjoyed spending time with his family, playing board games, and hanging out with his cousins.
This past year he found joy in helping others have fun by planning parties and supplying the treats. Jake will be remembered for his handsome smile and great sense of humor. Although Jake was tall in stature, his spirit towered over all.
He is survived by his parents, brother Britton, 14, sister Mckenna, 13, grandparents Vaughn and Linda Griggs of Nibley and Douglas and Karen Fairbanks of North Logan, and many aunts, uncles and cousins who love Jake.
Jake we will miss you, but say "keep moving forward." 'Til we meet again we love you.
A special thanks to his Ward Family and the doctors and health care providers at Primary Children's Hospital.
