William Griggs was a beloved father who believed that space represented the final frontier of exploration for humanity.
William grew up in rural New York and quickly developed a love for science, tinkering, and pushing the limits of possibility. William took this passion and his curious nature to launch a career as an aeronautical engineer working on groundbreaking projects, including the Saturn V Rocket that delivered astronauts to the moon for the Apollo missions.
William encouraged his daughters to engage in science and mathematics, building their confidence and teaching them how to take risks based on methodical preparation and knowledge.
