He was a member of the United Methodist Church in Spencer, now known as Faith Journey Church.

Hobbies he enjoyed included hunting and fishing, tying flies for trout fishing and going on his annual salmon fishing trip to Kewanee. His greatest loves were his kids and grandkids, his “morning rides” with a stop of the Spencer Kwik Trip and a good cup of coffee.

Those who will cherish his memory include his loving wife, Mary; his son, Elliot (Hilary) Graves of Abbotsford; his daughter, Erica (special friend, David) Graves of Spencer; his grandchildren, Landen Moore, Gunner Graves, Bowen Graves, Mallory McCall and Atlas Graves; his godchildren, Skye Olstinski and Keith Buse; his siblings, Greg (Val) Graves, Jeff (Julie) Graves and Sarah (Patrick) Graves-Kraus along with many other relatives and friends.

Spencer was preceded in death by his parents, Spencer and P.Jean Graves and his sisters: Jackie Graves and April Weaver; his beloved canine companion “Charlie aka Bonehead”.
