Edward “Eddie” Graham Sr. unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 at the age of 56. He was born on November 28, 1966 in Columbus Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his loving parents; Anna Scruggs and Charles Nelson Graham Sr.

Eddie is survived by his wife; Yvette Graham and children; Tracy McAnally (fiance’ Aaron Adkins), Jacksonville Florida, Edward (“Lil” E.) Graham Jr., one sister; Anita (Mick) Lewis ( The Woodland TX), two brothers; Charles (Danette) Graham Jr., Steve (Anita) Graham and his beloved grandchildren; (Aliyanna and Olivia) Adkins (Jacksonville, Florida).

He is further survived by nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives,
extended family and friends.

Eddie’s “Best” friend and companion, a Cane Corso, was his dog Kato. During his school years he attended Cassady Elementary School and
Mifflin Junior High School. Later he moved to Glendale, Arizona with his
mom and graduated from Moon Valley High School in Glendale, Arizona.
Later, Eddie moved back to Columbus, Ohio.

Eddie’s love language was cooking for his family and friends. He loved
to cook and was a grill master at cooking BBQ ribs. His BBQ baked beans are known far and wide as the best in the world.

Eddie was the youngest of four siblings and spent his time trying to keep up with his older brothers. Eddie was a devoted brother and proud to be called Uncle “BO”, a name used by his brothers.

He was an avid fisherman, a movie fanatic and a diehard Cleveland Browns fan. Eddie was a good friend to many. His friends knew that the party was about to get started when he was around. He could entertain people for hours with his jokes and repeated stories, especially about his family. Eddie volunteered at many of St. Philip’s church activities and gatherings such as assisting with the food produce, landscaping service and cookouts.

Eddie worked in the trucking and automotive industry for most of his career before his passing. Eddie grew up in Columbus Ohio. Anyone who knew Eddie appreciated his love for others, and the most loving father. He had a fun-loving personality with a huge heart. He was a kind and caring man who took pride in his family and that was so important to him. He always welcomed any strays into his home and whatever the cost, he took care of them. Eddie had a personality trait of making people feel comfortable by showing happiness and not wanting to bring others down.
