Melvin “Pete” Ronald Graham,78, of Liberty, PA passed away peacefully in his home with family members by his side to join his dear friend and sister, Patti, on Monday, May 14, 2018. He was the loving husband of Wanda (Broughton) Graham. They celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on February 22, 2018. Pete was born August 5, 1939, the son of the late Florence Onalea Graham and Melvin Gerald Pequignot.
It is impossible to put into a few words, the dash that comes between the date of his birth and the date of his death. Anyone who ever came into contact with him was drawn to him and became an instant known friend. Pete was a retired truck driver from B&D Transfer, Liberty. He was an avid hunter and found great pride in being a lifetime member of Camp Flowing Well, Morris, PA. This was his favorite place to be on Earth, at which he gave “my hut” a whole new description for the average tree stand.
The greatest joy in his life was his family, wife, Wanda of Liberty; children, Cindy Graham of Livonia, NY, the late William Graham, Robert Graham of Covington, Rick Graham of Liberty, Melvin Graham Jr. of Covington and Gina (Randy) Waltz of Trout Run; grandchildren, James Stiner, William (Jessica) Stiner, Darick (Wendy) Graham, Jesse (Lois) O’conners and Sloane Graham; great grandchildren, Joshua Stiner, Kaylee Graham, Kendall Graham, Kinley Graham, Kaiden O’conners; brothers and sisters, Bill (Jan) Pequignot of Lake Wales, FL, Shirley Clark of Batavia, NY, the late Patti (Dale) Bohart, Donna Taylor of Wellsboro, Judy Krause of Blossburg, Barb (Joe) Williams of Wellsboro and Eddie (Jane) Pequignot of Liberty; one aunt; several cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
A receiving of family and friends will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Tussey-Mosher Funeral Home, Ltd., 139 Main Street, Wellsboro, PA 16901.
