Michael Graham Obituary

Michael D. Graham, 54, residing in Saint John, IN was brought to rest on May 5, 2023.

June 07, 1968 - May 5, 2023

Beloved and devoted father of Michael, Caroline, Abigail and Kevin Graham. Loving husband to Lisa nee Eich of 31 years. Devoted son of Bonita nee Broda and the late Richard Graham. Son in law to Sandy and the late Robert Eich. Caring brother of Therese (Jim) Wohlever, Richard (Deb), Timothy (Nancy), and Michele McGrath. Brother in law to Nichole and Rich Ross. Proud Uncle to Kelly (Brian), Alec (Zoe) Tracy, Ray, Timmy (Anastasia), Danny, Emily, Patrick, Katie, Donny, Matt, Mikey (deceased), Ella and Jake. Godfather of Timmy Tracy, Austin, Alexandria, and Danny. Nephew to many aunts and uncles including Fred (Andrea), Tom, Maureen, Eleanor and many that predeceased him. Fun loving cousin to many and loyal to countless friends.

Michael grew up in Crestwood Illinois who made friends every step of the way, many of whom he was close with until his death. They knew he always had their back and would give them the shirt off his. In college, he met Lisa and he knew she was the one. In a few years, Mike’s true passion began to show when he and Lisa were blessed with Michael, Caroline, Abigail and Kevin.

Michael was a die hard football fan and Notre Dame was his favorite. His fondness of football and love for people brought him to proudly serve his community by volunteering in many organizations  including  Incarnation Parish community. He was “Coach Mike” to several junior football teams throughout the years. He was loyal and true to those he loved and had an authentic way of forming genuine connections with those he met in all capacities. 

Michael’s kind and generous spirit and infectious smile drew people to him. He was a champion for the underdogs. His legacy remains in the successes of his children and in the family and friends he has left behind. Gone too soon, he will be remembered fondly and missed dearly. We love you to infinity and beyond.
