It is with profound sadness that the family of Graham Lee (Adcock) share the sad news of his passing on October 31, 2022, after his courageous battle with cancer.

Graham leaves to mourn his wife, Susan Logan, and sons, Alexander & Denon Lee, and his beloved companion, Osmand PK, his cat. Left saddened by his passing is his father, John Adcock, also his brother and sister, Stephen Hamil and Carol (Bob) Felsch; included, as well, his stepbrothers, Brett and Grant. Graham left a hole in the hearts of his in-laws, many nieces and nephews, family in England, and a huge circle of friends and family that supported him and showed a tremendous amount of love throughout this past year.

Graham is predeceased by his mother and father, Joan and Arthur Bristow, and his stepson, Matthew Logan.

Graham led an extraordinary life. He was born in Red Deer, Alberta, but being in a military family, he laid roots in many a location, including Germany, various places in Canada, ultimately calling Winnipeg home. The pride and joy of Graham’s life were his sons. Family meant everything to him. He supported his elder son, Alex, and guided his younger son, Denon, into the military, of which he was immensely proud. Graham was very family oriented, and ensured that his sons celebrated holidays and birthdays. He shared a very special relationship with Susan Logan, who ultimately became his wife, throughout their 22 years of being a couple.

Graham was a collector; he was drawn to anything quirky and interesting. He has many a momento from his vast background of work history. Graham excelled at so many things; he managed 7-Elevens, McDonald’s, worked at Gienow Windows; he was a bus driver, both Greyhound and St. Albert Transit; and he was a court orderly for a time, and ultimately a postal worker. At each location Graham made an impression and maintained relationships with people from a variety of backgrounds.Graham loved travel and photography. He loved to share his stories of adventure throughout Asia, the Soviet Union, and United Kingdom, ultimately meeting the mother of his children in Taiwan, Beth Lee. He was always taking pictures and loved the idea of Facebook to share his experiences with those that followed him.

Throughout the past year, Graham shared his journey with cancer and found so much love and support in the messages and well wishes from friends and family. His ultimate goal was to educate others and ensure they take their health seriously. Graham will be missed tremendously.

There will not be any formal service, as was Graham’s wish, as he enjoyed a celebration of his life throughout the past year. He was able to connect and share his love with the people that were important to him.

  10. Graham was the ray of light in a dim work environment. He was always a joy to talk to about serious matter – because he actually listened. He was a joy to talk to because he knew how to laugh, not only at life but at himself. He was one of a kind and will truly be missed. We need more people like Graham on this earth.

  11. Graham, we want to thank you for sharing your best and worst experiences with us so openly and honestly. You did make a huge difference and you are continuing to help others through your message of courage, hope and humility. We are all going to miss that impish smile, and the laughs you always pulled off even through your most trying days. You will be sadly missed and Susan & family remember that you are not alone in your grief. We are all with you.

  12. I first met Graham when his sons were little. He was the son of a very dear friend of mine. He was the manager of the Polo Park McDonalds here in Winnipeg and was my daughter’s boss for a time. My daughter has often said how great it was to work for him because he was a lot of fun and made the workplace a great place to be! Graham and I kept in touch and it was great to see him on Facebook after he moved to Alberta. Sharing his journey with the big “C” has helped so many people who will now not ignore what their bodies are telling them. Thank You kid. You will never be forgotten! My sympathies are sent to his family.

  13. My deepest condolences to Susan, Alex, Denon and family. Graham was an inspiration, a kind, positive soul. He had a great sense of humour. I will miss his Facebook posts, always making me laugh. Sending you all peace and love during this very difficult time.

  14. Susan my sincere condolences to you and your family. Graham may you Rest in Peace. Susan thinking of you and sending you hugs and love. Take Care.

  15. I had the pleasure of working with Graham for many years at the Downtown depot, I always had some good chats with him. His sense of humour and positive attitude will be dearly missed. Even faced with death he made his posts positive and also encouraging others to take their own health serious because that’s the kinda guy he was, very caring. To his family my sincere condolences to you all, his passing has left a hole in many hearts.
    Rest In Peace Graham ❤️

  16. Dear Mrs. Logan,

    I am so sorry to learn of Graham’s passing.

    Being a teenager in Winnipeg would not have been the same without him–he was genuinely such a good friend.

    It sounds like he had a wonderful life, albeit much to short.

    To this day I have thought of him so many times…I am sorry we lost touch.

    Rest in peace, Graham.

    Rob Ames, Winnipeg
