Mike Graham, 46, of Abilene, TX was called home to his Lord and Savior surrounded by family and friends on Tuesday, June 11, 2019.

Mike was born September 1, 1972 in Big Spring, TX. He graduated from Stanton High School in 1990 and received his Associates Degree from Western Texas College in 1992. Mike then began his career in radiology and later advanced into nuclear medicine. His first job was at Detar Hospital in Victoria, TX. Dr. Sylvester Ortiz was his mentor and helped him advance in his career. He later moved to Abilene and worked at Abilene Regional Hospital where he was the Director of the Nuclear Medicine Department. Mike made friends with everyone who crossed his path with his contagious smile and caring heart.
Mike loved spending time at high school and college rodeos, supporting his daughter, Sydney and niece, Jacklyn. He loved playing and watching baseball with his sons, Mason and Maddox. He also enjoyed talking golf and Nascar with his niece, Kendra. He always had a great time when he was with his friends and family. But the thing Mike loved most in life were his three kids. Mike spent every day making sure his kids knew how much they were loved and how proud he was of each of them. He lived for his children and made sure they had everything they ever needed. Family meant everything to Mike, and family to him was not just blood but his friends as well.
Mike is survived by his three children, Sydney, Mason and Maddox Graham of Abilene; his parents, Cecil and Becky Townley of Stanton; one brother, Marty Graham and wife, Susan of Stanton; three sisters, Val Nobles and husband, Kim of Pecos, Linda Sifford and husband, Bill Basinger of Midland, and Celia Harrison of Stanton; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins; and his Abilene Regional Hospital family.
