ROBERT ALLAN GRAHAM
February 23, 1967 - August 22, 2022
With heavy hearts, we announce that Robert (Bobby) passed away from pulmonary fibrosis on August 22, 2022 with loved ones by his side.
He was predeceased by his mother Jane and sister Linda and is survived by his loving children Tegan and Brendan, their mother Moracine, his father and stepmother Joseph and Carolyn, his brother Jim (Aleta), numerous nieces and nephews, his extended Graham family, and many friends.
Robert attended St. John’s-Ravenscourt School in Winnipeg and Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario. He received his Applied Counselling Certificate from Red River College, and eventually found his passion working as the Executive Director of Two Ten Recovery. He was diagnosed with a progressive degenerative disease in his early 40s and was unable to continue in his chosen profession.
His childhood sanctuary was the family cottage at Lake of the Woods. There, with his parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and many cousins, he lived his best life. “The lake” remained his happy place and he made many memories with his family once he had children. His children were the light of his life; they were his steadying force and his reason for being.
Robert was warm, funny, and generous. With a flash of his bright smile and cracking a joke, he put people at ease instantly and made friends wherever he went.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations would be gratefully received by the Linda Joanne Graham Transplant Awareness Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation or at the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
A celebration of his life will be held on at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 at 603 Wellington Crescent at Academy Road (Unitarian Church).
Robert's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
