Bill George Graham

d. July 12, 2020

Bill George Graham, age 59, passed away on Sunday, July 12, 2020. He was born on December 5, 1960, in Columbus, Ohio. He was a lifelong resident of Mount Sterling, Ohio, and graduated from Madison Plains High School in 1979. He earned the State Farmer Degree and was very active in FFA and 4-H. He farmed his whole life on his family’s farm and wouldn’t have had it any other way. He liked working with all the cattle, but had a special fondness and bond with his pet bull. When he was not busy on the farm, he enjoyed wood-working projects and going to Amish country with his wife, Sheila. He was a longtime member of The United Church.

He is survived by his loving wife of 26 years, Sheila Graham; son, Patrick Smith; parents, Bill and Kay Graham; sister, Katrina Graham (Dale) Frey, nephews; Nicholas (Jessica) Graham and Ryan (Samantha Stout) Graham as well as aunts, an uncle, cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews, and many close friends. He was preceded in death by grandparents, George and Geraldine Gerhardt and Robert and Phyllis Graham.

He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

A private family service will be held with Pastor Dan Shipley officiating. The family will receive friends for a Celebration of Life from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, 2020, at The United Church, 30 E. Columbus St., Mount Sterling, OH.
