[Provo Daily Herald, May 16, 2002] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S OBITUARY: HIS OBITUARY: Bruce Ray Dabling, December 2, 1921 to February 2, 2018. Dr. Bruce Ray Dabling, 96, peacefully returned to the God who gave him life Friday February 2, 2018, in South Jordan, Utah. A Wworld War II veteran, pioneering optometrist, and devoted husband and father, he passed away surrounded by family members who love him. Bruce was raised in Provo where he attended BY High, met his high school sweetheart and future wife, Helen (whom he affectionately called "Shapey"), and developed his lifelong love for BYU. At BY High, Bruce was known for his academic achievement, athletic prowess, and raging six-pack abs that would make his wife-to-be swoon and his grandsons jealous. Bruce earned his wings and served honorably in the Army Air Forces during the Second World War, primarily training pilots serving on the European and Pacific fronts. Bruce was traveling home one weekend from training when he was told along the way that he was heading to his own wedding that his bride-to-be had planned without his knowledge. Bruce readily agreed, and the two were happily married 58 years before she passed away in 2002. Following the war, Bruce and Helen began their family, and he earned his doctorate in optometry from Pacific University. He later opened his own practice in Ogden where he cared for patients for 38 years and helped pioneer the use of contact lenses and other innovative procedures that benefited the Ogden community. Ogden was Bruce's home for nearly 60 years. He and Helen were active in the community, cheering on the Wildcats and leading several efforts to aid local schools, the Presbyterian Church, and individuals with disabilities. Healthy till his final year, he cared for friends in his neighborhood, visited nearby widows, and shoveled their driveways. He is preceded in death by his parents Ray and Lora Dabling, his wife, Helen, and his daughter Nikkie. He is survived by his sons Charlie (Jeri), Ralph (Mary Jo), Paul, and John, 13 grandchildren, and 23 great-grandchildren. He was a mountain of a man and the sturdy pillar of the Dabling family. He was singularly devoted to his family through his last days. He will be celebrated by all who were blessed by his expert eye care, the richness of his laugh, or the depth and steadiness of his love. He died with dignity, and those he loved are living witnesses to the goodness of his life. His funeral was held on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at Wasatch Presbyterian Church, 1626 South 1700 East, Salt Lake City, Utah. Interment, Provo City Cemetery.

Afton and Arnold Graham

BYH Class of 1940. Afton Fisher. She served as Vice President of the Student Body Executive Council in 1939-1940. Afton Fisher is the daughter of BYH faculty member Flora Davis Fisher, and Provo High faculty member, Asael H. Fisher. Afton married Arnold Graham. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: With a light in her eye and a soft smile on her face, Afton Fisher Graham peacefully passed away on December 28, 2007 at the age of 84. She was born March 4, 1923 in Fillmore, Utah to Aseal and Flora Fisher. Afton graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo in the Class of 1940. On September 9, 1942, Afton married Arnold Earl Graham in the Salt Lake City Temple. Their life together was a remarkable love story; timeless in its tenderness and devotion. They were married for 67 years and together they welcomed the birth of three children, 10 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. This love endured and grew long after their children were raised; long after Arnold retired from Geneva Steel in 1983. Together they traveled the world and doted on their growing family. Together they cherished their faith in the LDS Church, culminating in a mission to New York City in 1989. When Arnold passed away last January, the effect on Afton was noticeable and heartbreaking. The sparkle in Afton's eyes diminished; now in the arms of her soul mate once again can her happiness be restored. Afton's life revolved around service. She dedicated immeasurable hours to her church in a variety of callings. She gladly offered time and energy to community service as well. The first priority of her labors, though, was always her family. Lovingly known as "Nanny" to each of her adoring grandchildren, Afton was constant and committed to the welfare of her family. Further, Afton was a beautiful seamstress. There are many who still treasure the hand stitched blankets and quilts Afton's talented hands created. She also found great pleasure in her relationships with her many fortunate friends. She felt tremendous joy in the time she dedicated to her many bridge clubs, book clubs and sewing clubs over the course of her long and eventful life. Afton was loved by all lucky enough to have known her. There will be a noticeable silence in rooms now absent of her infectious laugh. Her kind words and tender thoughts will be well missed in a world desperately in need of both. Afton is preceded in death by her faithful and loving husband, Arnold; her parents, and her brother Dean. She is survived by her brother Grant of Provo and her three children: Janna (Michael) Herbert of Taylorsville; Jacque (Stanley) Smith of Provo; and Gary (Rebecca) Graham of Pleasant Grove; as well as her 10 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, January 3, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. at the Edgemont 9th Ward, 4300 North Canyon Road, Provo. Friends may call at the Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 E. Center St. on Wednesday evening 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. or at the chapel on Thursday one hour prior to the service. Interment will be at Provo City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to [Provo Daily Herald, January 1, 2008.] ~ ~ ~ ~ OBITUARY OF HER HUSBAND: Arnold Earl Graham peacefully passed away on January 17, 2007 at the age of 88. He was born April 11, 1918 in Provo, Utah to Earl Graham and Elvira Graham. He spent the majority of his life as a resident of Provo. As a youth, Arnold was an impressive athlete; a star at football and track as well as a state tennis champion, he was known to his peers as "Flash Graham." This love of sports endured throughout his long life. On September 9, 1942, he married Afton Fisher in the Salt Lake Temple and was tenderly devoted to her for their 64 years together. Arnold spent 38 years working for US Steel as the Superintendent of Production Planning. His eventual retirement in 1983 didn't suit someone as industrious as Arnie, and it wasn't long before he returned to the workforce, this time with the Provo Police Department as a crossing guard supervisor. This job he attentively performed until 2002. In 2001 the Provo Police Department awarded him the Support Services Division Commander Award. Arnold was never one to keep idle, in fact his active lifestyle certainly contributed to his long, productive life. In World War II, he served in the Army's 145th Medical Division. Arnold served a term as president in the Kiwanis Club. He was conscientious in both community and Church service. A devout member of the LDS faith, he served in many capacities within the Church, including Branch President and High Councilman. In 1989, he and his wife served a mission together in the New York City Visitors Center. He also spent countless hours maintaining the pastoral beauty of his mountain home in Wildwood. But his greatest and most enduring service was always towards his family. Arnold was admired by all who knew him for his loyalty and compassion. There will be many who will miss his witty personality and his warm anecdotes. He was a man driven by service and his love and dedication to his family was exemplary. Indeed, to best sum up the remarkable life of this amazing man, we need only to consider his own words: "For me, happiness is doing things for other people. If I couldn't help people, I don't know what I would do. I think that's what keeps me going." Arnold is survived by his dear wife Afton of Provo, his sister Faye Graham Firmage of Provo, and his three children: Janna Graham (Michael) Herbert of Taylorsville; Jacque Graham (Stanley) Smith of Provo; and Gary (Rebecca) Graham of Pleasant Grove; as well as his 10 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Monday, January 22, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. in the Edgemont 9th Ward Chapel, 4300 North Canyon Road, Provo. Friends may call Sunday evening, from 6-8 p.m., at Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center, as well as at the Church on Monday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. Full Military rites will be accorded by V.F.W. District #4. Condolences may be emailed to [Provo Daily Herald, January 19, 2007.]
