Keywords: Mancos Times,

A celebration of Randy's life will be held Saturday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Arriola Bible Church, Highway 491 and County Road S. A meal will follow a brief service, which will include time for family and friends to share memories of Randy.

Randy was born in Denver, March 30, 1957, to Lyle and Shirley (Hobbs) Graham. He was raised in Sterling and relocated to Summit and Park counties before settling in Cortez. He passed away peacefully at his home on Feb. 13, 2014, at age 56.

His fondness of helping others was mirrored in his employment of Property Management/Real Estate and his participation in his church and community. Hiking, bicycling and camping are among the adventures that he enjoyed most. His smile, wit and gentle manner deeply touched others.

Surviving Randy are his wife, Lois (Diedrich) Graham of Cortez; his son, Cameron Graham of Fort Collins; grandchild, Lorelei Graham of Fort Collins; siblings James (Ann) Graham of Parker, Kevin (Anocha) Graham of Reno, Nev., and Laura (Richard) Jones of Beale, AFB, Calif.; seven nieces and nephews; and brother in-law and sister in-law, Peter and Joan Brind'Amour of Mancos.

Preceding Randy in death are his son, Jared Graham; and his parents.
