Beloved father, American soldier and devoted husband Robert Bruce Graham, 59, passed away February 14, 2022 with his wife by his side after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

He honorably served for over 34 years, and completed multiple deployments, including Kuwait and Iraq retiring in 2014. He earned many distinguished medals including the Bronze star and was proud to serve his country. Bruce also loved Marvel comics, he loved to read and watch science fiction, carve walking sticks, going to museums and spending time with his family. Bruce is survived by his best friend and dedicated wife of over 36 years, Kathryn Pope-Graham, whom he met in 1982 while they were both working at Italian Delight in Fairfax, VA. He was the proud father to four children, Victoria (fiancé, Sarah) of Leesburg, VA, Collin of Oakton, VA, Grace & Liam of the family home in Gainesville, VA, his parents Bob and Diana Graham of Gig Harbor, WA, sister Kathleen Jung (husband Mike and 3 daughters Shannon, Kelly, and Molly) of Ridgefield, WA, sister Robin Lynn, (boyfriend Bill and 2 children Heather and Ian) of Centreville, VA, and brother James Graham (wife Lacie and 3 children Nolan, Owen, and Lauren) of Gig Harbor, WA.
