Sheridan Nelson Graham

November 13, 1978 - February 25, 2021


Sheridan Nelson Graham, beloved son of Brian and Lanette and cherished brother of Carly, passed away suddenly on February 25, 2021 at his home in Penticton at the age of 42 years.  Besides his loving family, Sheridan is survived by his brother-in-law Ross(Carly) Mandeville and his two nephews Greyson and Emery, his grandmother Elizabeth(Gord) Pyle, aunt Lisa(Daryle) Froystad, cousins Eric and Delanie, aunt Stephanie(Doug) Sutton and cousin Jagger, aunt Tammy and Cousin Tyler and nephews Magnus, Rowan, Jakob, William and Henrik.  Sheridan was predeceased by his uncle Allan. Sheridan was born in Eston, SK and started his life on a farm near Lacadena. The family moved to Colorado, Moose Jaw, and Swift Current before settling in Penticton. During his life, Sheridan enjoyed many academic and athletic awards.  The Big M, top athlete at schools and numerous golf club championships.  He was one of four selected for the BC Provincial Golf Team and got to play in the World Juniors at Torry Pines, CA at the age of 15.  He was selected to represent BC at the Canadian Juniors at Moonlake, SK at the age of 17.  Sheridan also played Rep hockey all of his young life and university hockey in Calgary. After graduation, Sheridan moved to Calgary and attended Mount Royal University to become a Certified Financial Planner. Many describe Sheridan as the kindest man who loved his family and the most genuine friend who kept us all close to his heart.  His never-ending smile and infectious laugh will be in our hearts forever. A Celebration of his life will be arranged in the future, once regulations permit.  In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make a donation to the charity of your choice.

Dear Lanette, Brian and family. Our condolences to all of you as you go forward together yet without your Sheridan. With great pleasure, we remember  memories of Sheridan as a little boy with the sunniest of smiles . We keep you in our thoughts during this sad time.

From: Daryle and Lisa Froystad

Uncle Do (Daryle) was on all fours giving toddler Sheridan a horsey ride, but Sheridan kept falling off. So after a fall, Daryle said, ‘squeeze your knees so you’ll stay on’. Sheridan then bent over and with his little hands squeezed his two knees.

From: Paula

Very sorry for your loss,  your family is in our thoughts and prayers.  Love Paula, Adian and Keaten.

From: Rebecca moroney

I remember when you were just little big eyes and so happy I’m sorry you left so early and you will be missed with much love

From: Delanie

I will never forget following Sheridan around during Canadian juniors at MoonLake golf course, so proud that he was my cousin. I will always remember his love of music and listening to Skee-Lo that one summer in Penticton. I will always think fondly of our niece and nephew Christmas parties with Steph and Doug – which were the BEST nights on the town. And I will be forever grateful for the fun times and long heart to heart talks we shared in Calgary. Sheridan, your beaming smile and generous laugh will forever be imprinted on my heart. I love you cousin.

From: Eric Froystad

Carly, Auntie Lanette, and Uncle Brian – I am so sorry for your loss.  We are sending our love and deepest sympathies during this difficult time.  I will miss Sheridan greatly.  I looked up to him so much and was so proud that he was my cousin.  I will cherish my memories when we were young boys: building BMX bike tracks in Grandma and Grampa’s back yard, building mini golf courses down at the park, and visiting you in Swift Current and Penticton.  I will also never forget the wonderful times I had with Sheridan when we were older visiting in Calgary and the trip he made to Winnipeg.  I am so glad Nancy got to meet him and am so sorry Henrik, Jakob and William didn’t.  We love you.

From: Shannon Cote

Sheridan was truly one of a kind. He had a way of making you feel so special and important. I’ll never forget his smiling eyes and his infectious laugh. He will be so deeply missed. I will cherish my memories of him always and I will hold a special place for him in my heart.

From: Blair LaBerge

Dear Brian, Lanette, Carly and family. I am deeply saddened to hear of Sheridan’s sudden passing. My heart goes out to you and your entire family during this time. I have so many great memories of Sheridan that I’ll always cherish. From our days working seismic, being roommates during college, Dave Matthews Band, summers camping in my truck beside the Graham home, golfing, Flames games, weddings, lots and lots of laughs and smiles. “Life is short but sweet for certain” – Two Step by Dave Matthews Band. Condolences to your family from my family. With love, Blair and Amanda LaBerge.
