Robert Dyane Braham

September 25, 1930 ~ April 16, 2017 (age 86)

Robert Dyane Braham, 86, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday April 16th, 2017.  He was born September 25th 1930 in Kingwood West Virginia. He was the son of the late Robert Braham and Ermatrude Braham. 

Bob enlisted in the Air Force and served our country proudly, retiring after 20 years of service.  Following his Air Force years, Bob worked as a field engineer with Burroughs computer systems supporting hospital computer systems.  He retired after a 20 year career.

Those who knew and loved Bob remember him as a hard-working, honorable and loving husband, father and friend.  He could build or fix anything.  His brother-in-law says that he is busy in heaven showing a bunch of rookie angels how to build a mansion.  This would make anyone who knew Bob smile.

One of the things that people noticed most about Bob was his amazing relationship with his wife, Gwen.  Bob and Gwen were married for 56 years and anyone who saw them could see that they were truly one and were in love every day of their marriage.  He was a gentleman in every way. 

Through his life, Bob enjoyed being outside and spent time at the lake and camping with his family.  He loved working side by side with Gwen to create a beautiful yard and home that was full of life and joy. 

His wife of 56 years, Gwen Butler Braham of the home; a daughter, Tammy Cook and husband Stewart of Lake James; a son, Gregory Braham of Charlotte; granddaughters Rachel Cook, Brandy Braham, and Hanna Braham; and grandsons Matthew Cook and Michael Braham
