Obituary of Charles Henry Graham

GRAHAM, Charles Henry - Passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Hospice Niagara in St. Catharines on Sunday January 28, 2024, at the age of 87. Devoted husband of 62 years to Elisa Callejas. Loving father of Elisa (Peter Redmond), Charles (Elizabeth), Edward (Colombe), Ana (Ralph Piller), and Michelle (Christopher Stebbing). He will be dearly missed by his 18 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Will (Mercedes), Rita (Buster Waldock), and Tony (Sylvia), as well as many nieces and nephews.  A native of Nicaragua and a proud graduate in Electromechanical Engineering at the US Naval Academy (1958), he brought his family to Canada in 1982 where they all made their homes. A devoted Catholic, he served the Church in various ministries, most specially through Kairos Prison Ministry for over twenty years.  With a gifted mind, he shared his love for science, politics, and innovation with all who knew him.  His enthusiasm for many hobbies made him a mentor to relatives and friends who will carry out his legacy in the kitchen, in the garden, and everywhere where new ideas can be implemented. Clearly a visionary, he led his family to higher grounds and was able to harvest much love and care from those closest to him, particularly when he struggled with his health. The Graham family is grateful to Hospice Niagara where he received exceptional care and to the many personal support workers who lovingly cared for him. A Funeral Mass will take place at the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria on Wednesday, January 31st at 10 A.M. with Rite of Committal to follow at Pleasantview Memorial Gardens.
