Lee Daniel ‘Danny’ Graham

Our hearts have broken with the recent loss of our loved one, LEE DANIEL “DANNY” GRAHAM, 65. Danny passed away on Sunday, April 19, 2020, in Roswell, New Mexico. Please take a moment to share a kind thought or memory with Danny’s family at www.andersonbethany.com.

On February 18, 1955, Danny was born to Eugene and Phoeba Graham in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. He was their oldest son. Danny graduated from Goddard High School and worked with his dad in the oilfield industry. He was the beloved husband of Kathaleen “Kathy” Graham, whom he married on September 11, 1975, in Plains, Texas. She survives him in the family home. Together, they raised four children.

After working the oilfield, Danny became a small business owner of Southwest First Aid and Safety. He enjoyed working with safety and all the people he met in his travels. He loved the outdoors, rock hunting, gold panning, and going to the mountains. Danny had just started figure making and painting. He loved traveling and seeing new places and enjoyed meeting up with his friends and family. Danny had a kind heart and was a God-loving man. He was a member of Rockhounds, and he gave charity to the Salvation Army. Whenever there were troubles, Danny would say, “Pray.” He told great stories to his loved ones and had a beautiful laugh, like no other. Danny’s eyes sparkled and danced whenever he was being mischievous, and that smile gave him away every time. He will be missed by his friends and family and will always be in their hearts and forever on their minds.
