Robert Graham Jr.

January 29, 2021

Bob Graham-

To his friends and family- he was Bob.

To the boys that grew into great men, he was Mr. Graham.

A man who went out of his way to help someone in need. A kind man.

You may have met the funny Bob with a dry sense of humor, or the thoughtful, quiet, contemplative Bob who made you rethink everything you knew when he spoke.  The Bob who would talk to a stranger about music, sports or the weather....

Bob impacted so many lives.  He offered a hand up if you needed it, and offered a hand out without strings.  He was the strong wall at your back even if you didn't realize he was holding you up.

He was always there.
Until he wasn't.

We look forward to seeing you again Bob. To have a beer or a shot.  Cheers.
