The retired former bureau chief of Canadian Press in Edmonton died peacefully July 30, at the Edmonton General's Hospice from complications due to bone cancer. Born in Medicine Hat in 1925, the son of labourer Arthur Trotter and Scottish immigrant Elizabeth Lambie, Graham joined CP at Winnipeg in 1948 and had a lengthy stint as news editor in Ottawa before transfer to Edmonton in 1969. He was a classic news hound in the era of lead pencil, typewriter and teletype, dedicated to delivering the facts quickly and precisely. In the last months, unaware of re-emerging cancer, Graham tended to his wife's own medical crisis and bore his own pain stoically. This old-fashioned gentleman will be sorely missed by wife, Mary,; daughter, Valerie; son, Larry; sister Margaret; grandchildren, Colleen and Andy; great-grandchildren, Alijha, Max, Owen and Nate, and all the relations and co-workers who knew him well.
A celebration of Graham's life will be held at Glenwood Funeral Home, 52356-Range Road 232, south of Wye Road, on August 7, 2007 at 10:00 am. Interment to follow at Glenwood Memorial Gardens.
