Warren C. Graham Sr., 82, of Tahlequah, Oklahoma passed away Friday June 26, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was born October 14, 1937, at home, in Wyman, Arkansas, outside of Fayetteville. Warren was the son of the late John and Myrtle Graham (Crow), and the youngest of three children.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John Graham and Myrtle Graham (Crow); sister, Rozella Harrelson; brother, Jack Graham; and grandson, Donald De’Nai (Bubba) Marshall Jr.
Warren served in the U.S. Navy between the years of 1956-1960, and told many interesting and colorful stories of ship life in Korea, Japan, and the Philippines, among other places. He moved from Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Michael “Mickey”, in 1979 to Tahlequah, where they raised the youngest of his children together and built the business “Graham’s Plumbing” from the ground up. They operated that business until 2015 when they both retired and the business was sold.
Warren is survived by the love of his life and current wife, Michael “Mickey” L. Graham, of Tahlequah. He is also survived by his former wife, Jane C. Wiser-Jones, with whom he had three children, Lisa Cole of Wichita, KS, Kimberly Hayworth (Ryan) of Logan, UT, and Warren C. Graham Jr (Lacy) of Tahlequah; 7 grandchildren; a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other extended family and friends.
Warren loved his family first, but he also loved nature and the outdoors. He will be forever remembered for his loving and generous spirit, his kind but funny personality, and his onery antics that always made us laugh.
