Kevin Francis Graham

The family of Kevin Francis Graham ask your prayers for the unexpected sudden death of their beloved brother, Kevin, who quietly went to the Lord on Thursday, January 19, 2023 in his home in the Bronx.

Kevin was a life-long resident of the Bronx and a proud graduate of Catholic schools — St. Anthony’s Elementary School (Commonwealth Avenue) and the Sisters of Charity, Cardinal Spellman High School (1973), graduate of Manhattan College in Riverdale and various other institutions in the medical administrative field in NYC.

He served for many years in the Administrative Offices of Montefiore Hospital (Bronx) and the Westchester Medical College in Valhalla until 1993. Kevin was a dedicated home care-giver to his father, John, who died in 1992 and then to his mother, Mary, who died in 2007. He was truly there for them 24/7.

Kevin was involved in many community groups, Bronx historical conferences and veteran memorials in the Van Nest and Morris Park areas where he lived. He was especially supportive and generous to church and educational programs at Cardinal Hayes High School, St. Raymond Parish and St. Frances de Chantal Parish, always willing and ready to help his brother, John, in these different assignments. His most recent contribution to his home parish of St. Clare was to begin a weekly Rosary Recitation in several languages.

Kevin will be terribly missed by his brother John, and sister Mary, brother-in-law George, sister-law Mary Kay, nieces Eileen and Bridget, nephews Brendan (and his wife Paulina) and Kevin, cousins in Ireland and England, relatives, colleagues from the hospitals, friends and neighbors in Morris Park where he loved to walk and talk! We pray that he will join his parents, Mary and John, as well as brother Thomas (deceased June 2022) in the happiness of eternal life and divine peace.

Visiting will be Wednesday from 3-7pm at John Dormi & Sons Funeral Home, 1121 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Mass of Christian Burial will be Thursday at 10am at St. Clare’s Church, 1918 Paulding Avenue, Bronx. Interment will follow at St. Raymond’s Cemetery, 2600 Lafayette Avenue, Bronx. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his name to St. Clare’s Church or your own favorite charity. God bless your generosity in Kevin’s name.

    While we never know the time and date, I can honestly say you left us too soon! You will be truly missed at all our events and with all of our great conversations. Send us blessings, Kevin, with all we have to deal with on this earth. Rest in heavenly peace. Prayers for your soul and prayers for your family.

    I have such fond memories of “Uncle” Kevin mostly from my childhood when he was often in attendance at our family functions or along with my parents just visiting each others’ homes or going to the Bronx Zoo together . While I haven’t seen him in the recent past, I still was kept up to date on how he was doing and what he was up to thanks to my mom. I was always comforted in knowing they continued to keep in touch and support each other all through the years since their high school days at Spellman. I can still hear his voice in my mind and picture his smiling face! I am so very sorry that he is gone so suddenly and much too soon.

    Kevin will be greatly miss—-our daily talk after mass, praying the rosary
    every Thursday, his Irish soda bread, his beautiful smile, his generosity, love and concerns for others and many other more. He is now safely home in heaven in the bosom of our loving Father. Go in peace my forever friend.

    An even, clear thinker and a very fair, generous and friendly individual to all who knew him. And yes, many good talks with him as well, which were helpful to me, personally. Rest in Peace, my fellow Spellman alum although many years past from your own graduation year. Bless your soul and watch us always.

    Eternal rest grant unto Kevin, O Lord,
    and let perpetual light shine upon him.
    May he and the souls of all the faithful departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    We will miss you dear friend.

    Kevin was an extremely intelligent man. He was always professional and a gentleman with everyone he met.
    Kevin was a loving son. He took care of his mother at home. I remember after Sunday Mass, I would see Kevin and Mrs Graham taking a walk on Paulding Avenue. We would chat and then Mrs. Graham and Kevin would go home for tea.

    Kevin participated in Community Affairs. Kevin would go to the Community Board Meetings. He participated in Computer classes at the Morris Park Library and also volunteered there.

    Kevin was also dedicated to St.Clares Church. He was part of the Renew & Rebuild process, making it possible for much needed repairs at St Claires to be achieved. THE WORLD IS A BETTER PLACE BECAUSE OF KEVIN

    Kevin you will be missed by family, friends and neighbors but you will be with us in Spirit.
    My condolences to the Graham family.

    I was a 1st. cousin, I regret that we never knew each other well and saw each other few times. I know he was a great comfort to his mother after his dad passed. Now he is reunited with them and someday we will all meet again.

    Although I did not see Kevin in over 40 years he was always in my thoughts. We worked together at Blue Cross/Blue Shield and became great friends!!! He was the very first person who smiled and winked at me when I started working there. We enjoyed numerous lunches together and dinners at my home. He was a very special person and always lit up a room with his beautiful personality and smile. Now God has prepared a place for him in heaven since his work on earth is done. He can celebrate with all his loved ones and rejoice in the goodness he brought to this world.
