Graham Bryce Halston (formerly Levi Halston; born Steven Neil Ward), age 66, died from liver complications on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020, in St George, Utah.
Graham was born on June 6, 1953, in Las Vegas, Nevada to Neil J. Ward and Pauline Francis (McBerty) Ward. He was raised by his loving grandparents, Paul and Vera Leach. Graham worked as an architect/designer, homebuilder and handyman. His American Craftsman style homes incorporated his passion for his surroundings. Specifically, he loved the look of old mining buildings and used them for inspiration.
He had a passion for life in all he did. Whether grilling, Jeeping, snowshoeing, kayaking, backpacking or writing books; he did everything with tenacity and precision. Graham married the love of his life, Julie Mitchell, on Sept. 28, 1991. They had many dogs, whom they loved dearly.
Graham is survived by his wife, Julie; mother-in-law, Shirley; brother-in-law, Mark (Cynthia); nieces Sarah, Mara (Robert), Tamara (Nathan), Lisa (Robby); and nephews Isaiah (Camie), Micah (Teresa), and Nephi (Briti).
