Joe Griggs was a clerk at the Shell station on West Taron and Elk Grove Boulevard.  
Always greeting customers with a smile and dedicated to maintaining a safe
workplace, on May 14, 2007 Joe attempted to break up a fight in the parking lot of
the station at which he worked.  Sadly, he was stabbed to death while trying to
prevent further altercation.  Joe leaves behind a loving extended family, a new wife
and two young children.  

“Joe Griggs Day” is a day for residents and local businesses to show their support for
Joe’s family.  On this day, between the hours of 4 pm and 8pm, local businesses are
being asked to pledge 10% of their sales to the memorial fund.  In return, residents
are being asked to support those businesses.  Proceeds will be divided between the
two official memorial funds set up by Tooley Oil and Raley’s/Tri-Counties Bank.
