Obituary

Jackie R. Graves, 65, of Newman passed away on October 30, 2021 at the El Paso Health Care Center in El Paso.

Jack was born on August 5, 1956 in Paris, IL to Billie and Janice (Lincoln) Graves.

He is survived by two children, Tyson (Malia) Graves and Jacki Graves; six grandchildren, Bryce Graves, Dylan Graves, Cheyenne Nichols, Faith Graves, Zane Graves, and Eric Marcrum; and two siblings, Michael (Debbie) Graves and Beth Ann (John) Hoult.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Billie and Janice Graves; and one brother, Bobby Lynn Graves.

Jack was a great mechanic, welder and fabricator, and could build a dirt track race car from the ground up; he was a jack of all trades.  He was also a truck driver for around 20 years.

When Jack wasn’t working, he enjoyed fishing, camping, working on cars, and going to dirt track races.
