On May 3, 2018, James E. “Jimmy” Graham, Jr. breathed his last breath just two hours before his 83rd Birthday. He peacefully succumbed after a five-year battle with Alzheimer’s, a period in which his family and friends witnessed his erosion from a gregarious, starry-eyed, and sharp-witted force into a timid and often lost, though still starry-eyed shell of his former self.
This year marks the 4th assembly of “Foo’s Crew”, a team invoked in 2015 to honor Jimmy/Dad/Grampy/Foo and all of the wonderful things he is. He lived his life dedicated to the service of others, first as the eldest of six in a poor Philadelphia family, then as a Corporal in the United States Marines and Air Force, then as a husband and father, then as President of the NALC Branch 46, and finally as a grandfather. His legacy and story live on in the lives of those he touched. Still, we need your help.
