I first met Graham when he stopped by my uncles farm on his way home from Pawnee Oklahoma, didn't know him from Adam but after a handshake and steam engine tour of the sheds we sat and visited like we were lifelong friends, I will cherish every moment I got to spend with him since that day.

I never knew Graham, like everyone else did. I would run into him at shows, and with a steady handshake, he would strike up a conversation. The man was the genuine article, a "good one", in my book. My dearest condolences to Jean and his family. God bless

My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire family. Graham (aka Wart) will be deeply missed. Wart as we called each other, (because he told me I was like a wart on the ass-end of progress MANY years ago), was such a kind and gentle soul! I will remember his smile and his bib overalls! Graham and Jean even gave me a pewter frog, with a wart made out of playdough on it for my high school graduation gift (I am sure the wart was all Graham's idea!) and I will treasure it always! He always welcomed me into their home and now God has welcomed him home! Rest in Peace Wart! With my love and sympathy, Jodetta

So many wonderful memories. He was such a special man. He loved Ed Thompsons Sons like they were his own. Him & Ed are having quite a conversation right now in Heaven. ❤

Graham will be dearly missed. I always enjoyed listening and learning when he was at a show when we would visit him at home.

Oh goodness where to start.. I have known Graham for 55 years because he was my dad's best friend from his childhood. They were AMAZING friends. I'll forever remember Graham and Jean and the rest of the pinochle group eating, laughing, playing cards while we kids were upstairs. As I recall they gathered once a month and there were 6 or 7 couples. Graham was at most all of our basketball games too because Cindy, Cynthia or Lisa were playing as well.. He and dad were quite a pair, Nov 14th gatherings around Homer (the wood stove in Grahams barn). Graham, Buster, Dad and Lucas (and several dogs before ) enjoyed many visits at one house or the other.. I'll forever remember the story of Lucas (or one of dad's labs) lifting his leg and peeing on Graham.. He would belly laugh every time he told that story. Dad and Graham had the kind of friendship that few have - up until dad passed away they spoke almost every day. I remember the tear in Grahams eye as we said goodbye to dad.. and Him telling us "I was okay until I saw that damn dog" - Lucas attended Dad's funeral. We were so very blessed to camp across the lake from Graham and Jean the past several summers and each time we visited camp our first fish caught were usually cleaned and delivered to them. If we gave them notice we were usually fed or shared something yummy that Jean had made.. Graham often got out his newest purchase for Mark to check out. Graham and Jean were perfect together.. the stories, the laughter.. it always felt like home. My heart is happy for Graham to be out of pain and made whole, however I will always miss his laugh, his stories, his hugs.. He was an amazing man and I am thankful to have had him in my life for all of my 55 years!! God Speed Graham.. Hugs and love to Jean, Mike, Chuck, Cynthia, Lisa and their families.. May the memories in time bring a smile to your face and peace to your hearts.. Love you all!
