GRAHAM, Jeffrey

Posted: November 12th, 2021


It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of JEFFREY RICHARD GRAHAM, of Lethbridge, on Friday, November 5th 2021.

Jeffrey is survived by his father Dwayne (Carol) Graham of Lethbridge, brother Michael (Melissa) Graham of Lethbridge, sister Stevie (Jeff) Eliot of Coaldale and nephew Caleb.

Jeff was predeceased by his mother Deanna Williams, grandparents Richard (Kathleen) Graham and Ray (Wanda) Williams.

Jeff was born in Lethbridge on January 29, 1978. He then moved to Cranbrook shortly after, with more moves to Medicine Hat, Fort McMurray and finally returning home to Lethbridge in 1982. Growing up, Jeff enjoyed playing street hockey with the neighborhood kids and hanging out with his younger brother Mike. Jeff was always active in sports, being involved with soccer and curling, where he won multiple Bonspiels in the junior curling program. Jeff made many friends over the years while attending Senator Buchanan, Wilson Junior High and Winston Churchill High School.

Following the passing of his mother in 1995, as well as a near fatal auto accident, his life was forever changed. After a rough year in Lethbridge, Jeff moved to Medicine Hat to start a new life. He began operating Southern Rewind successfully as a Branch Manager for 15 years, where he formed numerous friendships with customers and suppliers. When Jeff was not working, he enjoyed hanging out with his good friend Terry, playing video games and watching Nascar races. He rarely missed a race. When he would return home to Lethbridge for visits, he always made a point to catch a race with his dad, and tried hard to make every visit special with his sister. His family was always held close to his heart.

Unfortunately, Jeff’s demons resurfaced and he set off for a couple months to Langley BC, making a strong attempt to get himself back on track. He moved back to Lethbridge in 2013, where he lived with his brother while he tried to get back on his feet. He re-joined the Southern Rewind team at their main branch. During this time, Jeff found a passion for cooking his favorite foods such as lasagna, peanut butter cookies and bacon which he would share with his favorite dog Charger.

The last few years of Jeff’s life were anything but easy, however, regardless of his own well-being, he would always help anyone in need. He will always be remembered for his giant smile, his contagious laugh and heart of gold. We truly appreciate and thank everyone that tried to help Jeff during his walk through life. He deserved a much better hand than he was dealt.

A Private Family Service will be held on Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 11:00 A.M. with Patrick Siedlecki officiating. The service will be livestreamed and may be accessed via Jeff’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

In memory of Jeff, we ask that you please treat everyone you meet with kindness, and support organizations such as Streets Alive in Lethbridge and CAEH in Medicine Hat. You never quite know what someone is going through.
