Gordon Lyle Graham, 76, of Reed City, was welcomed by Jesus into heaven with open arms on Sunday, April 15, 2012, and will no longer suffer from the terrible disease of cancer.
Gordon was born on July 22, 1935, in Saginaw to Leslie and Agatha Graham and was a graduate of Arthur Hill High School and attended Delta College and Saginaw Valley Community College. In 1977, he and his family moved to Reed City when he became the owner and operator of Quality Wood Products in Baldwin together with his best friend Ron Michalski. He was later employed with Michigan Rubber Products as purchasing manager until his retirement. Gordon was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a very active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Reed City and served in many capacities, including president of the congregation, as a member of the building committee, and as an elder. Gordon loved the time he spent with family and church friends and has had a profound impact on all of our lives that we will be able to cherish forever.
