Graham was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His love for his family, his pride and joy, was monumental and led to his move to Airdrie, Alberta in 2014. He was actively involved in the lives of his children, from coaching his sons in minor hockey to the family fishing and camping trips with all his children and grandchildren.  He had a great love of travel and enjoyed many cruises and trips south with family and friends.
