James Graham
James Graham CALIFON, NJ James Graham, 82, passed away peacefully at his home in Califon, N.J. on October 8th, 2020. Having forever made an impact on all who knew him, James was loved by all, and will be greatly missed. James was born in Jamestown, N.Y., but was a longtime resident of Hunterdon County and lived in Califon for over 30 years. James was the only child of Ann Hewitt and Alfred Lucco. He also had two half-siblings; Anjanette Valiente and Angelo Lucco. James was the devoted husband of Gael Graham for 45 years and was the father of five children from previous marriages. He is survived by Lizbeth Lucco, Nina Drinnan and her husband Scott, Andrew Graham and his wife Dawna, and Christopher Graham and his wife Sandra. James was predeceased by his daughter Carla Nowell. His children also blessed him with four grandchildren; Sarah, Emily, Philip, and Dylan, along with a great-grandchild Jameson. James' marriage to Gael also gifted him five step-sons; Chris Laskey and his wife Linda, Steven Laskey and his wife Nancy, David Laskey, and Jimmy Laskey. He was predeceased by his youngest step-son Craig Laskey. James is survived by several grandchildren; Tatham, Caitlin, Erin, Brianna, Peter, Brian, Erica, James, Hogan, and Declan. James was also the great-grandfather of Tyrus and Jacob. James attended Syracuse University and joined the Air Force soon after. Having acquired a particular set of skills early on in his life, James went on to master many crafts. He was a broker for Paine Webber, an agent for Century 21, an owner of the Graham/Snyder corporation, and then of JG Construction. As a last endeavor, James became the building inspector of High Bridge Borough, and Clinton Township, as well as the zoning officer of Union Township. All of his life, James enjoyed building things; from his own home several times from scratch, to his final creation of an impressive, high tech chicken coop. His pride and joy was a red and white convertible Nash Metropolitan that he successfully refurbished and drove in many parades, including the Lebanon Borough Fourth of July parade, for over 25 years. James also considered Maine to be his second home. Gael's parents, Francis and Rayna Keane, lived in the small town of Jonesport, and they would visit there as often as possible. Memorial contributions in James' name may be made to the charity of your choice. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.coughlinfuneralhome.com . Due to Covid restrictions funeral services and interment will be held privately at the request of the family. Coughlin Funeral Home 15 Academy Street Califon, NJ 07830 (908) 832-2414
