In Loving Memory of
Allan James Graham
June 11, 1938 – June 17, 2020

Allan Graham went home to be with his Lord and Saviour on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at the age of 82. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland to Allan and Jessie Graham. He lived in Glasgow, Scotland until 1960 when he immigrated to Canada. After being involved in a Billy Graham crusade in Scotland, he met John Wesley White who was instrumental in Allan attending the Full Gospel Bible Institute in Eston, SK.

Allan moved to Eston, in the middle of a school term so just sat in on the Bible teaching for the next few months and began as a student the following fall. It was there he met and married Deanna Heistad between their second and third year at Bible School on October 8, 1962. They completed their third year of Bible School and graduated together. They moved to Calgary and had their four children there. Their first son passed away shortly after birth. Allan loved to serve as a minister of God’s word at Sarcee Nursing Home for over 30 years.

He is survived by his wife, Deanna (Heistad); three children, Jeanette (Drew) Godsman, Tim (Diana) Graham and Sheila (Curt) Scarlett; four grandchildren, Janelle Godsman (Robb Cochrane), Tyler (Chelsea) Godsman, Carter and Rachel Scarlett; and three great grandchildren: Emmett Blue-Godsman, Connor Godsman and Brayden Cochrane. He also leaves to mourn his sister in Scotland, Joyce Macdougall. He was predeceased by his parents, Allan and Jessie Graham and first son, Allan Wayne.

Allan and I were students together at Bible College in Eston. I loved his strong Scottish brogue. He played piano and I played sax. We had opportunity to play and sing together on numerous ministry weekends away from the school. More recently we would spend time together at Canada's Gospel Music Celebration in Red Deer. Allan loved gospel music and his opportunity to minister at the nursing home.
I have fond memories of Allan. ~Willard Mitchell
