Graham was a man of great faith who loved his savior, Jesus Christ, and cherished his family. He was a wonderful provider who sacrificed much for his family. Graham proudly served his country as a Radar Technician in the United States Navy until 1954, when he was honorably discharged. He worked for Lyondell for many years and is where he retired from in 1997. Graham was passionate about worshipping the Lord and loved being involved at his church. He enjoyed the outdoors, and in his spare time Graham enjoyed flying, boating, fishing, and motorcycles. He also loved his Husky dog, “Icee”, who passed the same week as Graham. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
