Robert Graham

June 12, 1942 — February 8, 2024


Robert Frank Graham, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and dedicated servant of God, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family at Hillcrest South Hospital on February 8, 2024, at the age of 81.

Frank, born on June 12, 1942, to Bob and Pat Graham at the Flower Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was baptized at an early age by Reverend Howard Allen in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. His deep connection with God started early in life, inspired by the joy he witnessed in Reverend Allen. A spirit-filled youth director, Frank eagerly devoted his time to helping the local youth, serving as the youth director at Westside Baptist Church in Sapulpa.

After graduating from Jenks High School in 1960, Frank pursued higher education at Oklahoma State University, earning a scholarship and a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. In the 1960s and 1970s, he proudly owned Powell's Restaurant and Pat and Brooks Cafe, both located on Brookside.

In 1962, Frank married Judy Humbyrd, and together they were blessed with three children, Cynthia, David, and Johnathon. Frank later married Serita Call, gaining a bonus child, Buffy Call, and together welcomed another daughter, Katrina Graham.

Around 1975, Frank relocated to Kellyville to pastor Sunrise Baptist Church. During this time, he led numerous individuals to Jesus Christ, spreading his ministry through radio station KXOJ, Brother Frank's Ministries, and even through his restaurant, Frank's Restaurant.

In 1982, Frank married Linda Blankenship, extending his love to her son, Dirk Blankenship. Preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Pat Graham, brother James Ralph Graham, sister Judith Ann Roberts, and nephew Robert Wayne Boyles, Frank is survived by his devoted wife Linda, sisters Patricia and husband Randy Ferguson, and Suzi and husband Bill Boyles; six children, Cynthia and husband Cecil Botts, David Graham, Dirk Blankenship, Jonathan and wife Kathryn Graham, Buffy and husband Pepe Graves, and Katrina Graham; 14 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Frank will be dearly missed by many, but his memory will live on through his family and the countless lives touched by his ministries. His legacy of faith, love, and service to others will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing him.
