Graham Blake Tillerson, 28, of Apex, North Carolina, left this world far too soon on October 6, 2020.

Graham was a graduate of Apex High School and East Carolina University, where everyone who met him was drawn to the constant joy that surrounded him. Graham truly loved the Lord and this love was shown in each and every interaction that he had. He was passionate about improving himself; whether physically, emotionally, or spiritually; Graham looked to be better every day. He never turned down adventure and loved traveling with his wife of five years, Skylar.

Graham leaves behind, to cherish his memory, his wife, Skylar Tillerson; parents, Scott and Donna Tillerson; brother and sister-in-law, Brady and Justine Tillerson; nephews, Brooks and Davis Tillerson; grandparents, Phil and Nancy Tillerson; mother-in-law, Tedi Newman; brothers, Christian and Mason Terry; and many aunts, uncles and cousins that loved him dearly.

Graham’s incredible life will be celebrated at the home of Scott and Donna Tillerson on Saturday, October 17, at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been created in his honor to spread Graham’s lifelong message of love.

I never met you but you touched the lives and hearts of people I know and care for. In their hearts and in their minds - and in the lives of the people they touch - you will continue to live.

I remember when you used to come into Lowe's foods to say hi to everyone. You were so kind and just a friend to everyone. You were so cool with your motorcycle gear. Your calm and friendly energy uplifted those around you. It's heartbreaking that a person like you has been taken away from this earth so soon. Too soon. You will be missed by so many .
