In loving memory ~
Graham passed away quietly on August 28th, 2022 in Vernon, B.C. at the age of 81 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 46 years, Florie (nee Bridger) and his children, Gareth (Karen) of Woodstock, Ontario and Owen (Sharon) of London, Ontario.
He was a treasured father figure to Florie’s children: Emily (Randy) Mark of Vernon, B.C., Rod (Laura) Sinclair of North Bay, Ontario, Geoff (Kristin Rogers) Sinclair of North Bay, Ontario and Matt Sinclair of Victoria, B.C. He was a beloved Opa to Josh and Keegan Mark, Drew, Nate, Cami, Ben and Mason Sinclair and Taylor, Kalyn and Nolan Price.

Born in London, England on October 16th, 1940, Graham immigrated to Canada in March of 1969. He worked in pharmaceutical sales until going back to school to study Theology at Huron College (UWO).
After his studies, he worked at Geddes Enterprises until he retired as Vice President in 2003. He was an active volunteer in St. John Ambulance for many years in London, Ontario and in Vernon, B.C.
Graham and Florie were married in 1976, whereupon he inherited her four children. They loved Graham very much, and not just for his red Ford Mustang and extensive comedy album collection, and despite his penchant for early morning kippers. He and Florie moved to Vernon, B.C. in 2006.
Graham lived with Parkinson’s disease for 20 years. He was admitted to Polson Extended Care in February of 2022 and died from pneumonia. Thanks to the wonderful staff at Polson Care Home and to Dr. Ken Perrier for his kindness over the past sixteen years.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. John Ambulance or Parkinson Canada.
