Robert J. Graham, age 62, of Crestview, Florida (formally Bourbonnais, IL) passed away June 25, 2020.  He was born in Metropolis, Illinois on July 4, 1957 to Ernest and Rebecca Graham.  Rob married the love of his life, Denise Sowders and to this union, two beautiful daughters were born.

Rob loved life.  He was always the life of the party. Rob was quite mischievous and really enjoyed making others laugh.  He loved his family, friends, fun, and chocolate!  He enjoyed traveling, riding his Harley, golf and watching the White Sox play. More than anything else, Rob loved and adored his grandchildren. His smile, his heart, his laughter and his immense love of life, especially toward his family will be greatly missed, yet will live on in their hearts and minds forever.

He is preceded in death by his sister, Rebecca "Missy" Livesay.

A Celebration of Life will take place in Illinois at a future date.
