LITTLE FALLS – Frank F. Graham, age 93, passed away in the comfort of Little Falls Hospital with his wife by his side on Tuesday, December 31, 2019.
Frank was born in Milford, NY on January 16, 1926, the youngest of five children to the late William and Frances (Grant) Graham. He lived his whole life in the Central New York area, working for twenty years at Snyder’s bicycle factory and then twelve years at Lifesaver’s, a position from which he retired.
