  11. Linda, Graham was a key part of our team groundbreaking on the Long Lake Project. One of the best quality guys we’ve been associated with. Sorry to see him go. I also speak for Tom, Charles, Cam, and many others working out of our little mouse-infested construction trailer at Anzac. Our sympathies are with you. Terry

  12. On February 1, 1984 my husband, Leith Nagy and I had our first child – a boy. I wanted to name him Graham after a childhood friend but Leith wanted to call him Joseph after his Uncle Joe. We couldn’t agree. Leith said jokingly that we should look up the name Graham Nagy in the phonebook and if there was one listed there then he would agree to my idea (never thinking that there would already be a Graham Nagy in Calgary). Low and behold there was, so our son became Graham Joseph Thomson Nagy. He is Graham to us but Gram to his friends and extended family.

    Graham is 26 now and just finished his M.A. from the University of Waterloo. He works in HR for Suncor.

    We are so sorry for your loss and wanted you to know that your husband made a difference in the lives people he didn’t even know. He was special.

    Joan Thomson and Leith Nagy

    I knew Graham, Dawna and Graham’s sister Carolyn while living in Calgary over thirty years ago.

    I have very fond memories of these kind, good and fun people. I was absolutely shocked to see Graham’s obituary and to learn that Dawna had been gone for so many years.

    It’s great that Graham was happily remarried and had a family. My heart goes out to all of you.
