Frank Graham, a well-known Midland veteran, died on July 13 at the age of 95.
Royal Canadian Legion Branch 80 in Midland will be honouring the Second World War veteran with a special service on July 23. Visitation will begin at 1 p.m. with a memorial service following at 3 p.m.
Graham was a member of the Midland Legion for 60 years, serving as president of branch 80 for a short stint during that time.
“We don’t have a lot of older vets left and it’s always a shame to see one of them pass away,” said branch 80 president Ron Adair.
“I’ll miss his presence. Whenever Frank was around he was always straight and tall and very forthright with what he said. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family.”
