July 13, 1976 – October 2, 2020
It is with profound sadness that we announce the tragic and untimely death of Graeme at age 44.
Graeme was loved so much. He will be deeply missed and carried always in the hearts of his mother Dawn, dad Steve, brother Ryan, sister-in-law Jess, sister Rachel, his ‘best buddies’; niece, Sophie and nephew, Kye, grandmother Viola and of course his fur baby, sidekick, Pebbles, who shared Graeme’s passion for cruising on his Harley.
Graeme also has a large, loving, extended family and friends who will miss his huge, sensitive, accepting, generous, and loving heart.
Graeme had an unforgettable sense of humour, combined with an amazingly quick wit, which could always bring a smile to your face and laughs to your day.
According to his ‘little buddy’ he did the best Donald Duck, Goofy and Mater impressions. He was sunshine. He will forever be remembered for his charismatic, friendly, engaging personality.
He will be missed for his many qualities but in particular: his bright, warm and loving smile, his mischievous laugh, his big, booming voice, his playfulness, his giant bear hugs full of love, warmth and sincerity, his love of music, and of all animals.
Graeme was always listening to music, he loved picking up a guitar and played by ear, he took pride in the beautiful fish tanks he created, he had a green thumb and whenever he could he always had hanging baskets and house plants.
He loved tinkering with and enjoying RC cars, boats and drones, and his most recent passion was to care for, customize and proudly ride his Harley which afforded him some of the peace he so desperately desired.
Graeme’s loved ones want to express their sincere gratitude to the bystanders and first responders who took action to comfort Graeme and render first aid at the scene of the motorcycle accident.
Although broken-hearted, Graeme’s family must take comfort in knowing Graeme is now in perfect peace surrounded by joy, love and light.
If so desired, donations in memory of Graeme to either Moms Stop The Harm, Petsmart Charities of Canada, or your local SPCA would be kindly appreciated.
