Obituary

Alfred Raymond Graham, Jr.
November 26, 1946 - November 3, 2019

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Alfred Raymond Graham, Jr. on November 3, 2019 in Calgary, Alberta. He was lovingly accepted into the hands of the Lord with his daughter at his side.

Alf was born in Toronto, Ontario November 26,1946, and moved to Calgary in 1965 with his family. Alf graduated from U of C with a BComm and later received his CA designation subsequently retiring in 2013 as a Revenue Auditor with the Government of Canada. Although his occupation was as an accountant, his talent and love for music was unrivalled. He was touched when presented with the John Philip Sousa Award, for the most outstanding musician in his graduating class by unanimous decision of staff and fellow classmates. Alf was also a history buff and could recount in great detail virtually any historical event dating from the Roman Empire to present day.

As a Detroit Red Wings fan, Alf never missed a game, and owned more team jerseys, tee-shirts, sweaters and hats than one man should. The only thing that surpassed his love for music, history and hockey, was the love and pride he had for his daughter. He was extremely proud when she received her Dr. of Traditional Chinese Medicine in British Columbia and was continually in awe of everything she accomplished.

He is lovingly remembered by his daughter Kimberley Schneberk, (nee Graham) son-in-law Jody, granddaughter Ciara , sister Pat Graham and brother Doug. Alf is pre deceased by his father, Alfred Raymond Graham Sr., and mother Dorothy (nee Wilson).

Services to be held at a later date.

My condolences to Alf’s family and friends. When I first met Alf in 1991 his love for family and Red Wings was front and centre. His infectious giggles would brighten our days. Rest In Peace my friend.

The most memorable image I have of Alf is when his sister, Pat, and I (as teenagers) went down to their family basement one day and there was Alf with a loud symphony orchestra playing full blast while he was acting as the conductor. He was so involved with it he barely noticed us. Alf had such a passion and interest in music which was evident throughout his life. May you forever rest in peace, Alf, with all the other heavenly, musical angels!

I have not seen Alf for many years but remember him from Calgary Temple. So sorry to hear of his death. He looked more like you, Pat, than I remember as he grew older. May God provide comfort for all those who mourn him.

My brother Alf was a very deep person in many ways. He could tell you details about history and people and dates that I had no idea even existed. He loved his music and had the musical scores of Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn with notes written by hand on every page. I remember as a child many times I would go downstairs and there was Alf conducting the orchestra on the record player. He knew exactly when each section of the orchestra should come in and with a wand in his hand he would point, just as real and serious as a live conductor. Like magic to me, that section of the orchestra would play on his command. This image of my brother conducting his orchestra in the basement of our home in Toronto is one that I treasure. When I was about 10 years old I went downstairs and was roller blading in the basement. Alf had his bedroom light on and the door open so I asked him what he was doing. Alf went on to explain the volcano eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and how the city of Pompeii had been completely destroyed. I stood there and was mesmerized by his story. Nine years later while hitchhiking Europe the place I wanted to go to most was Pompeii. The story Alf had told me unfolded before me as I looked at the ruins and mummified bodies within those ancient walls. Alf was a good brother and I know that he was at peace and that means everything to me.

I worked with Alf for several years prior to his retirement. The team all had a special place in their hearts for him. Alf would often share his new joke with the team, leaving everyone with a smile. We would look forward to Alf’s review of the newest movies, he was always one of the first to go see the new releases.
I don’t think there was anything more infectious in the office than Alf laugh. We could all hear it, and couldn’t help but laugh as well.
It’s no secret he was the Detroit Red Wings biggest fan, and once it was play-off time, Alf was sure to wear red every day to show support for his team. After his retirement, the team sent him a ticket to go see the Red Wings play when they were in Calgary. He was so excited, he arrived to his seat two hours early. He called me first thing in the morning so excited to tell me that the Red Wings had won the game. He was overjoyed.
He would often talk of his daughter Kim, and would tell us about the next running race she would be participating in, and he always beamed with pride when mentioning her. He was a proud dad.
Condolences to your family for the loss of Alf. He overcame some rough roads with a smile, and was always kind and considerate to everyone in spite of his own challenges. He will be missed.
