Obituary For Jerry Tony Graff
Jerry Tony Graff was born on October 19, 1940 in Hardin, Montana. His family relocated to Washington State when he was very young. They settled in Zillah Washington in the Yakima Valley. He attended school there and graduated from Zillah High school in 1957. He then went on to serve in the United States Navy. He moved to Western Washington in 1964 it was there where he met and married Jaci. They had two daughters. He retired from a very long career with the Boeing company.
Jerry loved helping people. He was a member of the Burien Elks for many years, giving his time to events like the hoop shoot, the hides program, and many more. He enjoyed bowling, golf, and later in his life, learned to love karaoke.
His wife Jaci passed away in 2007. He was blessed with another love Ginny and shared 12+ years together. She gave him the strength to fulfill his dream of being an exalted ruler of the Elks and it was she who introduced him to karaoke.
Jerry was a caring, proud and humble man who was loved by many. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by his love Ginny; his two daughters Nikki and Michelle; his grandchildren, David, Krista, Kayla, Matthew, Courtney, Andrew, Katie and Elijah and 10 great grandchildren, Jaci, Ella, Ben, Dean, Robert, Honesty, Kaylee, Millie Jean, Finnley and Easton.
There will be a few events to honor him. Please join his family at any of your choice or all. Elks Memorial on Sunday November 6th at 4pm at the Burien Elks lodge. Tuesday November 8th at 11:30am at Tahoma National Cemetery and 2pm Celebration of Life at the Burien Elks.
Instead of flowers his family is requesting donations be made to St Jude's hospital or the US Veterans.
