Graham, Ron


1934 - 2021

In loving memory of Ron Graham who passed away on December 30, 2021, at the Kirkland Lake Hospital. Ron is survived by his loving wife, Sharon. He was a devoted father and family man to his children and their families: Rhonda and her husband Harold Massi (Jeffery Massi, Ryan Massi and his wife Emily) Darren Graham and his wife Susan (Tristan Graham) Jamie Graham and his partner Janey (Colin Graham) Erin Shannon and her fiancée Dave Helmer (Tyler, Matthew, and Shannon Carroll) Dayna and her husband Tony Gourley (Hayden and her husband Marshal Coombs, Cole Gourley) Also, left to mourn Ron’s memory are his brother Doug Graham and sisters, Phyllis and Patricia.
Lovingly remembered and esteemed by many nieces and nephews. Ron was predeceased by his parents Elva and Alfred Graham.

A Church service will be held at the Tower Street First Baptist Church, 47 Tower Street Kirkland Lake Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 11 am. (Church capacity is 35 people) Followed by, in the spring of 2022, a graveside Celebration of Life at the Black River Matheson Greenhill Cemetery. Date and location to be announced later.

All of us who were in Ron’s life knew what an avid outdoorsman he was. His happy place was deep in a forest, surrounded by nature with Sharon by his side. Together they traveled the width of Canada, capturing breathtaking photos, videos, and the best travel stories! Ron’s love of his many pet companions was inspiring – his last furry friend, Kyra, was always near his side to share snacks and treats.

The family asks, in lieu of flowers, please donate to a furry friend charity of your choice in Ron’s name. The Family would like to thank the Kirkland Lake Homecare and the VON for their excellent care of Ron in his home. Your daily visits were a great support to him and his family. Thank you
