Milton Davidson Graham Jr

Milton Davidson Graham Jr

Milton Davidson Graham Jr. was born on August 11, 1939 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He died in Hot Springs on January 1, 2018. What defined him is what he did with the time given him between these periods. MD lived life to its fullest. He took risks, he positively influenced othersí lives, he volunteered his time and skills, and he made a difference. MDís family moved to Hot Springs where he grew up. MD lived life on his terms. After serving in the Marines he started the smallest business, a camera store, ever opened on Main Street in Little Rock. Through hard work, tenacity and a genuine love for his customers he grew the tiny business to three successful locations. He met the love of his life Harryette Lee Oswald teaching Sunday school at St. Markís Episcopal Church and they spent the next 46 years raising kids, traveling, and being involved in their church and community.

MD is survived by his wife, sons Harry (Yolonda) and Lee (Michelle) Mehlburger and five grandchildren Harrison Mehlburger, Jake Mehlburger, Madelyn Mehlburger, Mary Mehlburger and Spencer Mehlburger. He is also survived by his brother Terry Graham.

A private memorial service will be held at St. Markís Episcopal Church followed by inurnment in the columbarium. Memorials in MDís honor can be made to St. Markís Episcopal Church, 1000 N. Mississippi St, Little Rock, AR 72207. Arrangements are under the direction of Ruebel Funeral Home, www.ruebelfuneralhome.com
