Obituary

We are so sad to let you know we lost our father, George G. Graham, 83, who passed away peacefully at his daughter’s home with his family by his side June 11, 2022. He was born in Irishtown, PA to the late Clarence and Alice (Gabler) Graham and served in the National Guard. He worked for the City of Akron Parks and Recreation for many years and also for S & S Car Care. He was a member of Wedgewood United Methodist Church and most recently, of Greensburg Church of God.

George will be most remembered for over 50 years of coaching football. He started the youth program in Greensburg and was highly involved in Green Local Schools football, teaching and mentoring thousands of players. He was a member of OHSFCA, was a 35-year member of the Lions Club, and belonged to the Moose Lodge. He will be deeply missed by many.

We rejoice in knowing he is now with his wife, Kerrol and son, Glenn eternally. Also preceding him in death were siblings, Paul, Ruth and Clarence “Rock”. He is survived by his daughters, Christine (Tony) DeStefano and Cathy (Norm) Rhoades; grandchildren, Sarah, Rachel, Jake, Daniel and Gabriella; sisters, Betty and Vicki; brother, Timothy (Beth); many step-children, step-grandchildren and step-great grandchildren; and many other relatives and countless friends.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 from 4 -7 p.m. at Greensburg Church of God, 4691 Massillon Rd., Green, OH 44232. The funeral service will be at church on Thursday, June 16, at 11 a.m. with Pastor Bruce Wells officiating, with calling hours 1 hour prior to the service, from 10 – 11 a.m. Interment at Hillside Memorial Park.
