It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of Charles Graham at the age of 87 years. He will be remembered with love by: Irene, his wife of 64 years; four children, Charlene (Rock), Bradley (Brenda), Steven (Nancy), and Louise (Allen); nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Charlie grew up on a farm near Marsden, SK. He married the love of his life in 1955 and farmed for a couple years. He began his career in the oil industry in Estevan, then moved to Edmonton where together they raised their family. He owned and operated Jet Perforators for many years till he retired in 1992. Charlie and Irene enjoyed traveling together and spending time with their grandchildren.
Charlie had a unique sense of humor and was known for his kindness and quiet ways. He was a faithful, caring man of strong character.
He was quick to smile and ready with a big hug. Charlie was loved and respected by all who knew him.
