Bobby Graham Sr., 81, of South Bend, Indiana, passed on June 3, 2020 surrounded by family. Bobby was born to Roy and Fairy Graham February 17, 1939 in South Bend, Indiana.

Bobby graduated from Central High School in 1957. He ran track and had a reputation for helping others. If he saw that you needed help, he was always there to assist.  Bobby served in the United States Army.  A few years later he met and married Bertha, the love of his life.  In their 60 years, they had six children together.

Bobby was a proud family man and a doting grandfather. He was a very diligent worker and taught his children to do likewise. He worked for Torrington Company, South Bend Community School Corporation and also as an Usher for Notre Dame. He was well known around the community. He loved good food, jazz, taking family vacations, and of course Notre Dame football!

Bobby will be greatly missed by his beloved wife, Bertha Graham; six children: Rene, Cedric, Bobby Jr. (Angie), Marcus (Tanya), Yaves (Jennifer), and Cynthia; two siblings, Margie and Andrew; eleven grandchildren: Kyonna, Lushon (Loreal), Bradley, Crystal, Cameron, Janae, Anastasia, Danica, Elijah, Jamila, and Jeremiah; three great- grandchildren: Kiara, Jashawn, and Mackenzie; one great-great- grandchild, Zara. He also leaves to cherish him, a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Betty, Ruth, Paul, Roy, and Alfred.

Memorial services will be held at a later date.
