In Loving Memory

Henry Heyward Graves, Jr.

September 18, 1961 - February 10, 2019

Tribute

Henry Heyward Graves, Jr., 57, a native of Chicago, IL and a resident of Robertsdale, AL, passed away on Sunday, February 10, 2019.

Henry was an OTR truck driver, and he loved his job.  He also had a love for cooking, coin collecting, and his favorite saying, “Don’t touch my stuff”.  But his greatest love was for God and his family.  Henry had a special love like no other for his grandchildren.  They were the ones who melted his heart and made him a “old softie”.

Henry was preceded in death by his father, Heyward Graves; and his nephew, Ryan.  He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Tamatha Graves; his four sons, Jason Graves, Daniel Graves, Billy Graves and Phillips Graves; his grandchildren, Drake, Ben, Gracie, Chatom, Guy, Crissy, Sam, Melody, Will and Lil’ Henry; his siblings, Lorraine Allen, John Deguide, Christina Graves and Steve Ikea; along with other family members and many friends.  For Henry was a man who never met a stranger.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Faith Fellowship Church, 21081 Baldwin Beach Express in Robertsdale, on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 12:00 noon.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his memory to Faith Fellowship Men’s Ministry at ffcministry.com.

Expressions of condolence for the family may be made at www.hughesfh.com.  Hughes Funeral Home is assisting the family.

    Thank you for putting up with me, it was hard when you came into Tammy’s life, I felt you were taking her away. Little did I know I was actually gaining a brother, We had fun together we were the three musketeers! The trips to New Orleans will be cherished in my heart forever, all the memories will be cherished. I was always around and you never made me feel unwanted and I put you through hell for a while. But most of all thank you for making my sister so happy for 30 plus years and the beautiful family that came from this marriage. XOXO Your wings were well earned. Miss you
