Ronald Arvin Graham a beloved husband, caring brother, cherished father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by family on January 9, 2014. Ron battled a brain tumor for two and a half years and was called home to his loving Heavenly Father at the young age of 78. Ron was born in Salt Lake City on April 12, 1935 and was the son of James Laird Graham and Arvel Palmer Graham who preceded him in death. He was solemnized to his “Honey” in the LDS Jordan River Temple. They were the best of friends and spent 54 years loving and laughing together.
Ron supported his family through his ceramic tile business and was a long time member of The Beehive Wasatch Bowhunters. He loved hunting, fishing, camping and archery but his greatest joy was being with his family.
