We think of you and miss you every day.
Love, Steven and Joey
Sorry to learn of Roberts passing. He was always so kind and generous with his time.
I met Robert in the 70's and I have seen quite a bit of his work done in California. He was indeed a gifted man. My prayers are with you Steven. God Bless.
Deepest love and sympathy to the Graham family. My mother (Esther Perez) from San Jose, Ca. was a very dear and loved friend to "Robertito's" mom and aunt. Adelina Graham was my godmother and he would often watch over me as our mothers visited. My hero forever. He will always be in our hearts and prayers.
I had the pleasure of meeting Roberts mom Adelina and his aunt Mercedes around 1984 in Santa Monica my mom was there friend, while visiting them at there apartment Robert came in to visit his mother, There is when I first meet him he was so polite and curtius really he never forgot his roots and was allways a gentleman, he will be truly missed. From The Pimentel Family our symphathy and prayers to his family.

Bob's memorial service for was truly a celebration of his life. It was a perfect tribute to the most gracious man, brilliant sculptor and dear friend. It has been a blessing to have worked with him and I am forever grateful for the honor he has bestowed on my family. My condolences to Anjelica, Steven, and the RGStudio family. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
“Nous avons toute la vie pour nous amuser. Nous avons toute la mort pour nous reposer.”
Bob has now accomplished both. He was an amazing artist and friend. How very sad for so many of us. Besides joining my husband Robert who surely awaits him with a sketchbook in that unknown world, he joins the likes of Michelangelo and Botticelli. What conversations they must be having.
My sincere and deepest condolences to you Angelica, Steven and the family.
I met Bob in 1959, since then my
sister Joey has kept me updated on
all of his important events and there have been so many. May God watch over all who knew and loved him.
Condolences to Mr. Graham's friends and loved ones.
My prayers are with you all Anjelica
Joey and Steven. Bob will be missed.
Pat alway wanted to find the time to talk the artist talk with Bob, now they both have the time
I am saddened to hear of Uncle Bob's passing. I was the flower girl at his wedding to my Aunt Joey. I remember him as fun & gentle man. Our prayers are with Anjelica, Steven, Joey & Mac
I went to Grant, Peter Burnett and San Jose High, with Robert. He had such a marvelous gift, and he used it wisely. Even though he has passed on, his work will live on forever. He will always live on in the minds and hearts of the people that loved him dearly.
I met Bob when he was 18 yrs. old, in the air force and an artist. He was an extraordinary man, a great artist and a loving father. He adored his son, Steven, and they worked together for the last 30 yrs. It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to "Dad", our leader. His friend, Ed Moses, called him "A Golden Man". Indeed he was and we will miss him dearly. Truly, we are devastated with our loss and send love to all of you who are sharing our grief. Joey and Steven Graham
I knew Bob through my brother Alan Guzzetti. They were good friends & had a lasting friendship. Bob would visit us with Alan once in a while back in the fifties and sixties. He was a sweet and gentlemanly person. He left a wonderful legacy and will be sorely missed. My condolences to Anjelica, Steven and Joey. God Bless you.
Robert was my uncle and I am truly sorry to hear of his passing. I only met him once when I was in L.A. back in 1980. He took my sister and I to a premier showing of "The Empire Strikes Back"
My condolences to my Aunt Joey, my Cousin Steven, and to Anjelica.
Bob was my oldest friend - we go back over sixty years. In recent years, I was priviledged to see him once or twice a year and it was always a joyful reunion. I was devestated when joey, his first wife, first told me of his illness. Then, the news got worse as the months passed, and finally he was out of misery. My deepest condoleces go to Anjelica, as well as Joey and her son Steven who must now carry on without him. Thank God for all of his inspiration and the wonderful legacy he left for us.
I remember Bob fondly also, particularly from an incident during a history test in Dr. George's class (world history or geography--I forget which). While we were all busily scribbling our answers on the test paper, Bob simply sat there and drew pictures of tiny people--all over the page. When he saw Bob's paper, Dr. George asked him, "What are these, Bob, inhabitants?" I'll bet that test paper would be worth a lot today!
I am saddened to hear of Robert Graham passing away. I knew him as Bob Pena. He went to San Jose High school with my son Carl Churchill. And came to acouple of birthday parties at my home.May his soul rest in peace and may Perpetual Light shine upon him.Angelica may the Lord grant you strenght to bear with your grief.
When I lived in San Jose, I was able to see one of his sculptures in the center of San Jose infront of the St. Clair Hotel and the Montgomery theater. The sculpture is a representation of the Aztec god, Quetzalcoatl. Many in San Jose were not happy with his representation, however, Mr. Graham will be forever linked to San Jose's past and future through his sculpture--a living reminder of who he was. May you rest in peace and prayers and thoughts to his family and friends.
I feel shocked for Robert's death. And feel sorry for Anjelica and his family. I hope they will be strong...
And rest in peace, Robert. You live in our memory already
i was in 2 art classes with bob in mr briggs art class. he was always there to help others. his life will always be here in many ways....
You will be missed.
We are very sorry to hear about Robert. The promise at John 5:28,29 always brings us comfort.
I was saddened this weekend, when I learned of Bob’s passing. We have been friends since the mid-1950’s, when I knew him simply as Bob Pena. We were members of a local teenage group of guys, looking for a name for ourselves … as one would think, being the artist that we have all now known him to be, he offered up the name for us … the “Abstracts” … as the name implied, we were all unique. We reconnected again while serving in the United States Air Force … we were both stationed at Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming. Knowing Bob as a young and talented artist, it is no wonder that he has earned such fame and world-renown … it has been a joy to watch him create and earn the acclaim of an international artist … I send my deepest condolences to his wife, Angelica, and to his family .
Please except my condolence and May this Scriptrue bring you comfort Revelation 5:28,29

Bob was my Uncle and I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My sincere sympathy to my Cousin Steven and to Angelica and to the rest of the family. What a great artist the world has lost. I am fortunate to have several of his pieces of work and will treasure them forever. He will now rest in peace.
May God hold Mr. Graham in His memory and bless the family behind.
My most sincere condolences to Anjelica Huston and family. ?
I was fortunate to see a recent exhibit in L.A. Truly beautiful and thought-provoking. Condolences to his family.
Sorry for the loss of a dear classmate and friend. I knew him as Bob Peña, as he was my neighbor during our Junior High and High School years. He was a great sculptor and artist! My heartfelt condolences to all his family! You'll be missed Bob, but never forgotten!
Sorry for the loss of a dear high school classmate, thought of him often.
I was very sorry to hear about Robert Graham. I knew him as Bob Pena at San Jose high school. I got to see some of his work in Los Angeles. he was a great sculptor and he will be missed greatly by all artists. My heartfelt condolenes to all his familly.
A big lose, We only knew Robert as BOB Pena at San Jose High in 1956. His name came up often and we are all happy to have known him in are owen small way. Good by BOB!
I remember Robert from our high school days at SJHS, quiet, always drawing, purposeful, serious, shy. I thought that he lived for art, i still treasure a small drawing he made of me while in geometry class. I am sad that he can no longer create, but enriched by what he did create.
I was shocked to find out that Robert had died. I saw him a couple of weeks ago and he looked great. He truly was a great sculptor of this time and will be missed for his extraordinary works. God has a true angel now. May God Bless Angelica and the rest of the family. You are at peace now.
My deepest condolences to his wife, Angelica Houston & his son.
He was an amazing sculpture artist.
I'm very sorry to hear about Robert Graham. May the family find comfort and hope in God's word during this time of grief. Revelation 21:4
My dear cousin Robert was a life-force that I will never forget. I am sure that my aunts Adelina and Mercedes, my grandmother Ana and my father Carlos were there to welcome him home!
I was shocked to read of the death of Robert Graham this morning on the front page of the Los Angeles Times.
We are lucky enough to own a Graham sculpture and a signed poster from a photo show. I admire his work greatly and this is a personal loss. I was so happy that I got to meet Robert Graham at the opening party for his doors. He created such beautiful pieces and this is a great loss to the art world and to the public as well as to his family.
Condolences to the family. Rest in Peace Robert.
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
I am very sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. He was recognized as an icon to many. His contributions to others showed that he enjoyed life. Almighty God who is perfect in memory, has no problem remembering the life patterns of those who have died. God gives us hope of seeing our loved ones again. He being the source of life, gives us this promise at John 5: 28&29.
What an amazing sculptor, and an amazing man!

A Life Well Lived.
REST IN PEACE, ROBERT GRAHAM
