Harold F. Graham, 76, of Honey Brook, PA, passed away peacefully on the morning of Friday April 30, 2021 at his home.

Born May 14, 1944, Harold was the son of the late Robert and Susie (Owens) Graham. A lifelong resident of Lancaster, Harold held several positions through the years. Harold worked at Lancaster Malleable Casting Company for over 40 years as a laborer and most recently at Keim Chevrolet as a maintenance man until his passing.

Harold was a hardworking individual that will be remembered for his unique touch, honesty, loyalty, and passion for his work and hobbies. Noted as an animal lover, Harold raised many farm animals through the years and helped provide refuge and kindness to stray cats that sought his gentle hand. He faithfully attended Green Dragon on Fridays and enjoyed ending nights around the campfire with his family. Harold’s helping hand, graciousness, and unconditional love for his family will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Betty (Rudisill) Graham; two daughters: Kim Miller wife of Dwayne and Holly Wentz wife of Rick; two step-daughters: Rita Way and Janis Gibson; a step-son: Mike Rudisill; two brothers: Ray Graham husband of Joyce and Jim Graham; a sister: Janet Brandt wife of Al; five grandchildren: Stevie, Whitney, Steven, Heather, and Renee; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Harold was preceded in death by six brothers and two sisters.

I am writing this to honor the life of Uncle Harold.  He was a beacon of light  for everyone he would encounter.   When I was ten years old, he and his family took me to the original Batman movie at the Comet Drive-In. Harold owned a red Chevy convertible, and I was on cloud nine going to the Drive-In in that classic car!  We also went to the Philadelphia Zoo, and went fishing quite a bit just around home in the Paradise area, to name a few of the happy memories.  His work ethic was of epic proportions, and his exceptional gift of assisting anyone in need preceded his kind reputation.   Harold will be fondly remembered for his  sense of humor, charmed personality, humility, generosity,  and for the extraordinary person we all dearly loved.💜🎣

I worked with this wonderful man for 7 years. From the day I started not knowing anybody came up to me and gave me this awesome smile. Made me feel like I was somebody and that I had a friend in the company. Friendship became more as a father figure to me after losing my father. I will miss him and will always think of him. Ernie

I worked with him since June of last year, and he was quite the character.  He really knew how to make me and the guys laugh every now and again.  I know all of us will miss that without question
