Jason Darrel Graham
March 25, 2020
Aug. 20, 1976 - March 15, 2020
Jason Darrel Graham, 43, of Sweet Home passed away Sunday, March 15, 2020.
He was born on a hot August day in 1976 to James and Vondella (Ingram) Graham.
He left this world suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack.
Jason grew up in Sweet Home and was a natural artist from an early age. He valued friendship, loyalty, and the keeping of your word. His heart was kind and unwavering with empathy to others in need or in pain. He was a true artist, and his own worst critic.
Jason went to school and became a licensed tattoo artist in 2004. He worked as a tattooer, and eventually taught upwards of 80 students how to tattoo. His natural artistic ability, and talent for truly listening to people made him a spectacular tattoo artist. There are thousands of walking canvases around the world with a piece, or in some cases, many pieces of his art on their bodies.
Other than art, Jason loved music, dogs, aquariums, comedy, and being in the woods. Not necessarily in that order. He also enjoyed anime, skiing, fighting, driving his Mustang, good weed and beautiful women. Also, not necessarily in that order.
What Jason loved most in the world above all else in life is his son Rally, who inherited his dad's protective instinct and capacity for love and compassion.
Jason was a man to leave few things unsaid, as he was never afraid to speak his mind, leaving no question of his love for his family and friends. We will miss this fiercely.
He is survived by his parents, Jim and Von; his son, Rally; Rally's mother and lifelong friend Diana White; best friend John Norton; girlfriend Dona Eckrode and her daughter Emily; and of course, his beloved dogs: Knox, Domino and Seven.
He was preceded in death by two childhood friends, Dwayne and Kory, who are all together now and raising hell in the afterlife.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that you love life, hug your loved ones, and visit your friendly neighborhood tattoo parlor for some ink therapy. See you, space Cowboy. We love you.
Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
