Columbus Graham

November 18, 1935 — August 24, 2015

Columbus Jackson Graham, 79 , of Woodbridge, VA departed this world August 24, 2015 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Born November 18, 1935 at Chestnut Mountain, WV he was the beloved husband of Hettie B. Graham- the love of his life; dear and precious father of Donna Brown (Glen Sr.), Corsonda Richmond, Donald Richmond, Roberta Jane Graham and Christopher Jack Graham; loving grandfather of David Curtis Richmond and Glen Brown Jr.; great grandfather of Oliver Jackson Richmond; brother of Sue Graham Morgan and uncle to several nieces and nephews.
Columbus was preceded in death by his parents Streeter Adewin and Nerma Bennett Graham; brothers, Garland Graham, Ralph Graham, Abraham "Buster" Graham and Estil Graham; sisters, Dorothy Graham Gilpin, Jean Graham Powell Lilly, Edith Graham Jackson, Sylvia Graham Adkins, Freda Graham, several infant sisters and one grandson, Streeter Jackson Graham.
He was a 1955 Hinton High School Graduate and a US Army Veteran. Upon his return from the Army he began a career in sales with Kraft Foods. At one time he was the only vendor on the east coast without a college degree that had the least absences and highest sales.
Columbus enjoyed tinkering with machinery, planting gardens, feeding his squirrels and spending time with family. The legacy he leaves his family is of love and tenderness and his children will carry his legacy forever in their hearts.
