MAYHEW, Graham Frederick

August 13, 1948 – Surrey, United Kingdom
April 18, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Graham Frederick Mayhew of Calgary, AB, passed away on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at the age of 70 years, surrounded by family.

Graham was born in Surrey, London on August 13, 1948. He emigrated to Canada in 1979 with his wife, Eileen, and sons, Dominic and Craig. Since that time, Calgary served as home base with various work excursions including South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and Scotland. Graham loved his work and was well-respected as a materials engineer; known all over the world for his knowledge and professionalism. He made lasting and cherished friendships where ever he went. He was a proud family man and a person who embraced life to the fullest. He had a passion for sailing and a particular affinity for Norfolk, England and Kelowna, BC where he enjoyed time on the water. An avid sports fan, he cheered and participated in many events; his most proud accomplishment being the completion of the London Marathon in 2005. Graham was also skilled at renovations and spent a lot of time upgrading and personalizing the many homes he and Eileen lived in over the years. Generous to a fault, Graham was available to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Graham lived life fully and deeply; always with a compass to creating meaning and memories with his family and friends with his wonderful sense of humour.

He is survived by his wife of fifty years and true love, Eileen; his eldest son Craig, his wife Shelly, and their daughter Madysen; and son Dominic, his wife Jill and their children, Alexander and Camryn.
