Charles Kemp Graham, 80
Charles Kemp Graham, 80, former resident of more than 40 years in Everett, MA, passed away Saturday, December 5, 2015 in his Tewksbury home that he shared with his best friend and forever partner, Patricia Stasiowski.
Charlie was born in Boston on January 8, 1935 to the late Charles and Kathryn Graham.
He was a beloved father to his daughter, Laurie Anne Graham and her long time love, Curtis Beaupre of Sanbornton, NH and his son, David Kemp Graham and his wife, Kathleen (Sova) of Pelham, NH.
Charlie enjoyed a rich and full life engaged with friends and a large, loving extended family with many cousins, nieces/nephews, great nieces/nephews and many more.
A graduate of St. Clement High School of Somerville, Charlie served honorably for the US Navy on the USS Macon CA 132. He had a wonderful career as an engineer and inventor at Polaroid Corporation and retired after almost 40 years of employment.
Charlie’s lifelong passions were the love of music, especially jazz, target shooting, craft beer and the New England Patriots. He had a great sense of humor and wit that will be missed by all.
Over his lifetime, Charlie made many cherished friends and memories that were very dear to him. Honoring his wishes, a memorial luncheon will be held in early 2016. We invite family and friends to come together and share the many wonderful stories and memories to celebrate the special life of “Charlie”.
