Michael Allen Graham passed to his eternal rest on Friday, February 17, 2023, unexpectedly and way too early, at the age of 58. He left behind his most cherished gifts, his three sons.
Michael was born on October 21, 1964, in Washington, D.C. He was the eldest of five children born to Albert and Fernande Graham. After graduating from Maurice J McDonough High School, Michael served in the Naval Reserves. Throughout his life, Michael was an entrepreneur with various business ventures, including owning and operating a restaurant in Baltimore, MD.
He touched others with his generosity and his love for those close to him. He received his greatest joy in supporting his three sons in all their endeavors especially as they followed in his footsteps as competitive high school wrestlers. Among his family members and friends, he was regarded as an undisputed true original - highly intelligent, with a quick wit. He is remembered with great fondness and love. He will be missed by many and remembered by all.
Michael leaves behind his three teenage sons, Ian, Oliver, and Henry Graham; his parents, Deacon Albert, and Fernande Graham; and his siblings, Monique Graham, Elisabeth Graham, Stephen (Rhea) Graham, and Kristina (Tom) Wilk. In addition to his nieces (Rachel Wilk, Sophia Graham, Maris Wilk, Lilith Graham), nephews (Niko Graham, Joshua Wilk, Nolan Wilk, Lucas Kazem), cousins and his devoted girlfriend, Anastasia Hobe, Michael is also survived by his former wife and mother of his children, Sarah Blackburn.
Visitation will take place on Sunday, February 26, 2023, from 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM at Stauffer Funeral Home: 1621 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick, MD 21702. A Celebration of Life will follow from 3:00 PM until 4 PM.
