Graham, 74, was welcomed into the loving arms of
Jesus on September 22, 2019. Ultimately, he
surrendered to complications from long-time health
issues but is now blessed to be healed and whole and
in the glory of his heavenly Father.
His love and devotion to his family was only
exceeded by his Christian faith. For 33 years, he
loved worshipping at Community Alliance Church
weekly, including many times when doctors advised
against it. He will be remembered for being an
unwavering example of Christ-like faith and service
to everybody who was blessed with his company.
Prior to his retirement, Skip had worked at American
Glass Research and AK Steel. To cherish his memory,
he leaves behind his wife of 50 years, Phylliss
Graham; his son, Aaron (Amie) Graham and two
grandchildren, Avery and Marshall; his daughter,
Rachel Graham; his brother, Marty Graham; his
step-sister, Judy McLaughlin-Ryan; and Audura
Philips, who loved him like a father.
Friends and family will be received on Friday,
September 27, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Community
Alliance Church, 800 Mercer Road, Butler, PA 16001.
A memorial service will immediately follow at 3
p.m., officiated by Rev. Dennis Krajacic. In lieu of
flowers, contributions may be made to Pine Valley
Camp, 504 Chapel Drive, Ellwood City, PA 16117.
Arrangements were handled by Thompson-Miller Funeral
Home, 124 E. North St., Butler, PA 16001.
