Bill Graham and his late wife Nila were valued neighbors for over 25 years. He was always gracious and welcoming.
Bill had valiantly served his country in the Marines and received a purple heart.
He was an accomplished pilot and flew his own plane to meet business contacts when he worked as a salesman. He recounted the time maintenance failed to put the dipstick back in. As soon as he took off, his windshield was covered in oil. Despite this he successfully landed his plane. True grit under pressure.
Bill and Nila loved their niece Connie Patzer like a daughter. Connie took good care of them often flying in from Colorado.
Every year Bill and Nila would bring us their
famous rum cake. It was an anticipated addition to the Christmas holidays.
Bill enjoyed meeting with fellow veterans at
Olive Garden in Duncanville weekly as long as he could get out.
Even after Alzheimers had taken some of his memory, he continued to greet us with a big smile. a twinkle in his eye and always a "How are you doing"?
What an amazing and inspiring example he was as a member of that esteemed " Greatest Generation".
We were so honored to be his friends

It is sad that I had to find out accidentally that my Uncle Bill had passed away. He was a big part of my life for many years.
I attended many Marine events with him and my Aunt Nila. He was very proud of his service during WWII in Guadalcanal where he earned a Purple Heart. One time he was asked to be on a panel at a symposium at the Nemitz Museum in Fredricksburg to talk about his experience in the war. I was very proud of him that day.

We had many fun times together. He always looked nice with his shirts pressed and starched. He loved to dance, travel and have a fun time. He was a kind gentle soul. I will miss him.

I will never forget going to TX and staying with Uncle Bill and Aunt Nila. Uncle bill and I would sit outside when it rained and watch the raindrops hit the hot cement and see how big the rain drops would get. He took me shopping and bought me a doll to have while I was on vacation. Uncle Bill was a very loving kind man. We will miss him. I am sure that he and Aunt Nila are together again. All my love, Heidi.
