Rulon and Alice Graham

Class of 1954. Rulon A. Graham. Band, Debate, Short Plays, Childrens Theater. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Rulon Alvin Graham passed away on December 18, 2016 due to complications from his 25 year battle with Parkinsons disease. Rulon was born in American Fork on December 9, 1935 to Alvin and Laprele Graham. He grew up in Wallsburg and Provo, graduating from B.Y. High School in the Class of 1954. He served honorably in the U.S. Army as a Nike Radar Operator in Seattle from 1954 to 1956. On August 24, 1956, he married his high school sweetheart, Alice Thomsen in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Rulon worked at the Provo Post Office for 37 years as a Mail Carrier and later managing the postal fleet. Rulon will be remembered as a life long learner; from making his own telescope and his passion for learning about the universe, to building his own kayak, spending 2,000 hours building a model ship, making beautiful stained glass windows for his home, his adventures in mountain climbing and his passion for photography. He also loved sitting with friends and family playing games or figuring out a complex puzzle. Rulon lived a life of service. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in several ward and stake callings. Early mornings would find him painting over graffiti on the high school wall, mowing a lawn for a sick neighbor, or fixing a sink at the church he noticed was leaking. No one ever knew who had done the work because for Rulon it was about service, not the recognition. To Rulon, a stranger was just a friend he had never met. To those who knew this gentle giant, he was the best husband, father and friend you could ever want and we were fortunate enough to have. He is survived by his wife Alice, sisters Delores and Nelda (Dale) and brother Riley, children Raymond, Karl (Tracy), Bryan (Carolyn) and JennyLind (David), 16 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents. Funeral services will be held on December 23, 2016 at 11 a.m. at the Hobble Creek Stake Center, 555 South Averett Avenue, Springville, Utah. A viewing for friends and family will be held Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Wheeler Mortuary, 200 South 200 East, Springville, Utah. Interment, Evergreen Cemetery, Springville, Utah.
