James J. Grillo

December 12, 1944 - May 12, 1972 Norwich, Connecticut

Jimmy joined the navy at 17. When he served his four year term and was honorably discharged he went back to high school and then on to college; he was going to be a teacher for middle school age children. He received honors in college and on the day he was to get graduate and get his diploma; he died. A scholarship was made in his name at Teacher's Memorial High School. Jim loved racing cars and motorcycles; he was my best friend; and loyal to all of his friends. Jim was loved by all who knew him.
