Passed on: February 13th, 2016
Graham Murdock MacCuspic, surrounded by love and in the company of his wife and three children, Graham passed away peacefully on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016, at the age of 61. Graham was a loving husband, father, brother and Grampie.
He was the son of Murdo and Kay (Paterson) MacCuspic.
His ambition for work took him to Western and Northern Canada but he returned home to his beloved Grand River to raise a family and follow his true passion as a lobster/crab fisherman. Graham was a kind, mild mannered man who was quick to lend a hand to those who needed it and he never shunned hard work. He was known for his big smile and hearty laugh. He had a great sense of humour and enjoyed hearing and telling a good joke.
Graham was very proud of all his children and passed on to them many great qualities by the way he lived his life. He loved spending time with his granddaughters who were his pride and joy.
In his earlier years Graham was a member of the Grand River Fire Department and the cemetery committee. He served on the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary and on the Richmond County School Board. Graham was also the president of the L'Archeveque Wharf Preservation Society for 15 years.
Graham is survived by his wife, Margaret Ann (Gillan); sons Roddie (Chantelle) and Colin (Chelsea MacAulay) and daughter, Kate (Ashton Carter); granddaughters Brielle and Emmie; brothers Eldon (Dianne) and Maynard (Janine), many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents.
