William "Gene" Graham, Sr., age 83, a beloved father, grandfather, and great-grand, passed away on November 29, 2023, in Nashville, Tennessee. Born on May 8, 1940, in Williamson County, Tennessee, to the late JD and Virgie Graham. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, Melvin “Tutor” Graham.

Survived by his wife, Linda Graham, daughters, Toni Ragsdale, Reba (Jimmy) Winters, Gretchen Pierce (Keith Kingsfather), Cynthia Graham, Kim Fusaro, Sharon (Randy) Hardgrove, and Joyce Hall, sons, William Eugene Graham, Jr. “Scott’, William Eugene Graham II., “Bubba”, and William Eugene Graham III, “Billy”, brother, Malcolm (Robbie) Graham and several loving grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Gene lived a life defined by love, passion, and a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Gene's love for nature was evident from an early age. He found solace and joy in hunting, fishing, and spending time in the great outdoors. Gene felt a profound connection to nature. His enthusiasm for these activities was contagious; he often shared his knowledge and experiences with anyone who shared his passions.

Beyond his affinity for outdoor pursuits, Gene cherished his role as a dedicated family man. He was a pillar of strength and support to his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Nothing brought him more joy than witnessing the happiness and success of his loved ones.

In his spare time, Gene could be found relaxing at home, immersed in the world of westerns and old-time movies. He had an insatiable appetite for classic cinema and appreciated the timeless storytelling it offered. When he wasn't watching films or enjoying nature's beauty from afar, Gene dedicated himself to farming. Working the land brought him a sense of purpose and fulfillment that few other endeavors could provide.

May he rest in eternal peace, forever remembered as a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and a man who truly embraced life's wonders.
