ROBERTSON, Graham Murdoch

GRAHAM MURDOCH ROBERTSON

SEPTEMBER 21, 1968 – APRIL 25, 2021

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our son, Graham. He fought a long and courageous battle with throat and lung cancer.

Graham was born in Vancouver, B.C. Soon after, his family moved to Ont. In 1975, the family moved back west to Calgary, Springbank (Artist View West). Upon graduating from high school Graham set off for the Far East and other world travels. In 1995, he began studies (Dr.TCM) at the International College of Chinese Medicine, Victoria B.C. He was the valedictorian at his graduation. Graham maintained an interest in TCM, but it was relegated to a hobby when his natural artistic abilities were realized. In 2001, he spent 6 months being mentored by Somers Randolph (master stone carver) in Santa Fe who showed him the creative possibilities of abstract form. Graham created innumerable beautiful carvings out of various types of natural stone. His work can be found in a number of public and private collections and in treasured gifts to family and friends.

Graham will be deeply missed by his children; Gabrielle Smith, (Brandi Smith, her mother), Poetry (8), Diety (5), Shaman (3) Robertson, and Jaya Amy, his friend and mother of the littles, and his stepchild, Ren, his parents, Maureen and Murdie Robertson, his siblings Stewart (Maria), Karen (Larry), numerous relatives, cousins, aunts and uncles, and many cherished close friends: in particular, Jens, Tim, Brandon, Dan, Maria, and the Range Road group who were close in heart and principles.

We thank Dr. John Walker and the staff at the Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton for your compassionate care. We thank the paramedics, the staff at the Misericordia Hospital and Gil and Rene for your sensitive, caring, end-of-life presence with Graham and his loved ones.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Graham’s memory to the Cross Cancer Institute, or alternatively, to a fund for his 3 young children. Graham Robertson, [email protected]

Graham, Jens and Myself were known as the Rudlin st. Rude Boys.
lt was the best time in my life and Graham, Jens and meself were super tight. Major goodtimes we had together. I pray for Graham to cross the next bardo, protected, guided, and supported by powerful deities. May Graham rise to higher, more purified realm’s or become primordial absolute awareness.

I Love you bro, and l will always see you in thy light.

Maureen, Murdie,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I remember meeting Graham when he was doing his Chinese medicine and what a gentle soul he was.
Our kids are loving the Priddis house and I suspect have a keepsake from Graham’s carving behind the stove downstairs. They love it.
Treasure the memories, take care.
Valerie and Art.

I met Graham many years ago in Calgary. It was always a delight to be in his presence. I remember the moment he told me that he was moving to Edmonton. Looks like Graham created a wonderful family. So sorry to hear this tragic news.
