Stanley Leslie Graham

Date of Death: April 3, 2019


Graham, Stanley Leslie

May 9, 1927 – April 3, 2019

It is with sadness that we share the news that Stan has passed away. Born in Los Angeles, California, Stan was raised as a Canadian. He spent his early years in rural Saskatchewan before moving with his parents to Calgary and discovering the mountains he loved. He completed his schooling in the early 1950s and started his career as a draftsman with Shell Oil Company. After marrying Patricia, sister of a friend, he was transferred away from the mountains to Edmonton for 20 years. Every long weekend Stan and his family would drive west to camp and fish or south to visit family in Calgary. After transferring back to Calgary, he and Pat spent weekends in the mountains hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing. A lifelong photographer, he would give slideshows of calendar quality photographs. An original DIYer he built garages, finished basements, and built a cabin. He always had a workshop and in later years crafted furniture, wooden bowls and stone jewelry. After 35 years with Shell, Stan and Pat retired to waterfront property on the Shuswap Lake. There they spent years enjoying the outdoors at home and while traveling with their trailer. Stan’s final years were spent with Patricia and near his daughter in Nakusp, still enjoying mountain scenery. Stan will be forever loved and remembered by his wife of 67 years, Patricia, son Paul (Nadya), daughter Leslie (Stephen), grandsons Christopher (Melanie) and Graham (Megan) great-granddaughters Jenna and Katelyn, brother and sister-in-law Duncan and Helen, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of his life will be held with family at a later date.
