GRAHAM, O. HOWARD
JUN. 14, 1919 – NOV. 15, 2017
HOWARD GRAHAM passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Wednesday, November 15th at the age of 98 years.
Howard was born in rural Saskatchewan as the oldest of eight children to Gertrude and Orvel Graham. Growing up on the farm, Howard held many jobs and developed a master skill set for woodworking. In 1946, he married the love of his life, the late Margaret Ellen Graham, and together they had three children. The family lived in Ontario where Howard often travelled for work and spent the majority of time with the Ontario Department of Highways. A desire for warmer weather would eventually lead the couple to call Aldergrove, BC their home.
After the passing of his beloved wife, Howard moved to Lethbridge to be closer to family. He spent many days reading western novels, playing cribbage, and admiring the outdoors. He also never passed up the opportunity to enjoy a Tim Hortons coffee and engage in good conversation.
Howard will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his sons, Doug (Linda) Graham and Marty Graham. As well as his daughter, Toni Donna (Mike, and son Logan) Anderson. Also left to cherish the memory of their “Popa” are granddaughters, Jennifer Leroux, Angela Giles, Michelle (Ryan) Hood, and Jessica Anderson. As well as greatgrandkids, Hayden, Desirae, Allen, Jayde, Brayden, Ariana, and Hailey.
A private family gathering will take place prior to Howard being laid to rest in Murrayville, BC.
