Donald Ray Graham

Donald Ray Graham, a Welder engineer by profession, but so much more to those who knew and loved him, passed away at his home in Emory. Born on November 29, 1956, in San Diego, California to parents Max Graham and Yovnne “Bonnie” (Hurley) Graham, he had a remarkable journey that touched the lives of many.
 
 During his time in the Army as a member of the 82nd Airborne, Donald displayed courage and dedication to his country. His service was a testament to his strong character and sense of duty.
 
 Known for his infectious personality, Donald was loved by everyone he met. He had a unique ability to connect with people through storytelling; strangers quickly became friends in his presence His love for conversation led him to strike up chats with anyone he encountered, making every interaction a memorable one.
 
 A man of creativity and passion, Donald was a collector at heart. He cherished all his belongings and took pride in his collections. His keen eye for detail and appreciation for the beauty in everyday life made him stand out among his peers.
 
 Despite being notorious for starting projects without finishing them, Donald's enthusiasm and zest for life were evident in everything he did. Whether it was tinkering with his jeep or cruising on his Harley Davidson, he found joy in the simple pleasures that brought him closer to his loved ones.
 
 Donald's proudest accomplishments included building a lasting legacy of memories with those around him. His ability to bring joy and laughter into every room he entered will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
 
 He leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter that will continue to live on through his surviving family members: His wife Judy Graham, daughters, Erika Ciofani and Shelby Graham; sons, Alex and Logan Null, and Jode and Barrett Paris; three grandsons, three granddaughters, and brother Max Graham
 
 He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Wayne Graham.
