Obituary for Bradley Graham
HOULTON - Bradley Lon Graham, 57, died unexpectedly on May 19, 2017 in Houlton. He was born February 7, 1960, the son of Anita E. (Pelletier) Graham and the late Willie “Bill” S. Graham of Houlton
Brad was a loving father and husband always putting his family first. He had an incredible work ethic and loved his business, Graham’s Redemption Center. His weekends were spent tinkering around the house, watching his sons Ryder play baseball and Hunter perform in musicals, spending time with his daughter Amanda and riding motorcycles with the love of his life, Lynn.
His fondest childhood memories were spent in Allagash with his loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He had a great support group of loyal friends and customers that he would give the shirt off of his back for. He loved his animals, especially his “shop cat” Jenny, who greeted him at the beginning of each day. Brad loved life and celebrated it every day by spreading his love to everyone he would meet and greet, and to the public he served. He was a man with a heart of gold, once you met him he was your friend for life. His smile was contagious and his laugh was one you could never forget.
Brad is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Lynn (Ledger) Graham; his three beautiful children - daughter, Amanda Graham Brewer of Linneus and her husband Thomas; his two sons, Hunter Graham and Ryder Graham of Houlton; two brothers, Nason Graham and his wife, Kimberly of Houlton and their two children Patrick and Brendan, Stephen Graham and his wife, Teri of CA, and their son Clayton; his sister-in-law, Patty Fitzpatrick and her husband, George of Hammond, their two sons Troy and Travis; two brother-in-laws, Peter Ledger and his wife, Shelley of Linneus, and their two childrenm Alishia and Jeramie, Arty Ledger of New Limerick, and his three children Levi of Arizona, Gabe and Aspen of Houlton.
