NEVILL: Graham George

NEVILL; Graham George

Passed away peacefully on Thursday 2nd May 2024, aged 82 years – now at rest with his Lord. Graham was able to remain at home until the end, as he wished.

Graham was the much loved husband of Cheryl; father and father-in-law of Craig and Kirsten, Michelle and Jonathan, and Rachel. Survived by his sister Alethea and her husband John, brother Clive and his wife Jenni, his late brother David's wife Dawn and his late brother Colin’s children, and sister-in-law Lyn. Adored grandfather (Papa) of Annabelle, Samuel, Kate, George, Grace, Phil, and Katie; grandson-in-law Jordan and granddaughter-in-law Abby; great-grandfather of Milo, Eliza, and Robbie. Graham will be greatly missed by family and many long-term friends.

Graham was a talented aircraft mechanic and his love for aircraft extended beyond his work. Throughout his life, his church involvement sustained him and he shared his love of God with all he met. He led youth groups, served as a church elder, played trumpet at church, and lived his life with Jesus as his guide. Many who met him remarked on the twinkle in his eye.

His family appreciates all the support from those who cared for him during his last months. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Alzheimers Society, Marlborough A/c no. 02 0600 0112284-00 Ref. Nevill

A celebration of Graham’s life will be held at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church, 92 Weld Street, Redwoodtown, Blenheim, on Wednesday 8th May at 2pm, followed by private cremation at the Cloudy Bay Crematorium. All are welcome.
