Dennis Graham

VALDOSTA — Dennis Graham, 81, passed this life on November 3, 2013 at Crestwood Nursing Home, Valdosta, Georgia. Mr. Graham was born on September 2, 1932, to the late Benjamin and Josephine Marbley Graham.

He attended Dasher High School.  He was united in marriage to the late Carolyn Louise Williams.

In addition to his parents and wife, he is preceded in death by one sister: Annie Bell Graham and one brother: Allen J. Graham.

Mr. Graham is survived by one son: Dennis H. Graham (Angela) of Valdosta, GA; two daughters: Carolyn Marie Graham of Brooklyn, NY and Wanda Gail Graham of Waco, TX; two grandchildren: Neitha Cleveland (Rondell) of Brooklyn, NY and Corey Graham of Atlanta, GA; two great-grandchildren: Joia and Javohn of Brooklyn, NY; one nephew: Thomas James (Ruth) of Miami, FL; one sister in-law: Annie Grace Williams; cousin in-law: Franklin Johnson; and a host of cousins and loving friends.

Deacon Dennis H. and Sister Angela Graham give honor and thanks to  their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and to their beloved Pastor, Rev. Marilyn Thomas—Pastor and Founder of Oracles Deliverance Church for her divine leadership.  Grateful for her loving care with great wisdom from God to foresee the future and to instruct their lives.  She requested that we take care of dad in our home in1985; he lived with us for over 25 years.

In 2011, he became seriously ill and had to be placed in the nursing home.  We are certain he would not have lived as long as he did.  Mr. Graham was very thankful for Rev. Thomas’ consistent prayers for him throughout the years. Rev. Thomas visited him a few days prior to his death and prayed the intercessory prayer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Funeral service will be held Saturday, November 9, 2013, at 3 p.m., at the chapel of Godfrey Funeral Home, 636 River Street, Valdosta.  Deacon Dennis H. Graham will give the eulogy. Interment will follow in the Sunset Hill Cemetery.  Public viewing will be today from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Godfrey Funeral Home.  Sympathy may be expressed by signing the online registry at  Personal and professional services are provided by Godfrey Funeral Home, LLC.
