BSc (Agr), McGill; MLA, Harvard

Don Graham passed, peacefully away from us in his Iroquois home, Saturday, 4th of November, 2017 just shy of his 87th birthday. Don was surrounded by his lifetime love, his wife of 63 years, Ree Graham (Grisdale), his children, Brian (Cathy), Wendy, (Jean Landry), Joanne Graham. Lorna Gunstone, (Lew), his sister, as well as his 4 grandsons, Nelson, Rory, Myles and Eric mourn his passing.

Don was and will be remembered as a true gentleman; passionate, patient, kind, philanthropist. An environmentalist well before his time. He founded the firm D.W. Graham and Associates, Landscape Architects in Ottawa and for 30 years, planned and designed responsible green spaces for urban and regional landscapes, locally and internationally. His commitment to our environment and our humanity will be felt and enjoyed for generations to come.

Donations, gratefully received, to the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF) will go towards creating a scholarship bursary in Don’s name to carry on his legacy. Address: LACF, 102-1637 WEST 5TH AVENUE, VANCOUVER, BC., V6J 1NS
