Obituary for William Graham
William A. Graham, 86, beloved Dad, Greepy and Coach, passed peacefully after a brief illness, Wednesday Jan. 21st at UMASS Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
His wife, Camille R. (Colorio) Graham died in 2010.

Bill was retired from Wyman-Gordon in Worcester. In his younger days, he was an avid tennis player but his real passion was coaching Little League baseball and Pee Wee basketball. Over 50 years, Bill coached three generations of Millbury players. In recognition of his service to the community, a street in Millbury was named after him. He loved his wife completely, his children unconditionally, his grandchildren fiercely, and the players he coached devoutly. Bill will be remembered for his unwavering honesty and integrity.
