Gale Richard Graham died unexpectedly at home in Enumclaw, WA on October 15, 2023 at the age of 75.
Gale was born in Spokane, WA to James and Eunice Graham. He married his high school sweetheart Sandy in 1968 before joining the Army and serving one tour in Vietnam. When he returned, his family moved to the Seattle area to raise their two daughters. He worked as a mechanic in the power system division for 31 years at NC Machinery in Tukwila, WA.
The center of Gale’s universe was his family. He especially loved spoiling his daughters and granddaughters. Ever the master craftsman, Gale could often be found building custom wood and metal workings in his garage. He could design and build anything.
When he wasn’t creating art, Gale loved road trips, camping, riding his bike, and spending time with his family.
Gale is survived by his wife Sandy; daughters Tammy (Shane) and Jennifer (Shannon); and granddaughters Abby and Eve.
