Timothy Lane Grafton
It is with unexplainable sadness that we must announce the untimely passing of Timothy Lane Grafton, aged 60, of Kosse, Texas. Tim was born on January 11, 1962, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
He started his career with Davis International and then went on to work for Saulsbury Industries to become Senior Director, E&I. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him would attest to his level of loyalty, commitment, work ethic, and value.
He worked hard because it was important to him, but also because he wanted to make sure his family never with without. He spent his free time at this ranch with his family, hunting, fishing bbqing, telling bad jokes, and of course, working. His idea of a perfect Saturday was to spend the entire day filling up deer feeders, as long as he had someone else to climb the ladder, of course!
Tim was a lot of things to a lot of people, but most importantly he was a wonderful husband, the world’s best father, grandfather, and certified BMF. Family meant everything to him and he made sure to teach us everything we needed to know about life all while keeping us laughing the whole time. He will be missed by many. Matter fact, he already is.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Lane and Sylvia Grafton and his sister, Becky Ruiz. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Cheryll Grafton; his 3 children, Jocquelin Smith, Megan Grafton, and Tyler Grafton; his 7 grandchildren, Isabella, Sydney, TJ, Harlie, Benjamin, Emery, and Griffin; and his sister, Pam Grafton.
A memorial service will be held in the upcoming weeks with details released at a later date.
His cremation arrangements will be handled through Broussard’s Crematorium under the direction of Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont.
