Loraine was born to Theodore and Mabel Kittleson, on a farm in Bottineau, North Dakota, on September 28, 1923. She had an intimate knowledge of the land and guided hunters in her early years.

Robert joined the U.S. Border Patrol in 1955 and moved the family to Arizona to help treat their son's asthma. During Robert's career, Loraine moved her family several times, living in various cities in Arizona, Texas, Montana, Puerto Rico, and California. Her great passion in her later years was rescuing, healing, and adopting the steady stream of abandoned dogs that came her way – her second family. Loraine was proud to be part of the "Greatest Generation", growing –up through the great depression, serving her country during WWII, and in raising a large family in the post-war era. Loraine's values and examples of service, kindness, humor, sacrifice, and most of all, love, are her legacy. She is survived by five children Ramona, Marion, Steven, Gerald, and Terry, six grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her son Bobby and her husband Robert. Loraine was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

Milton James Graham, Jr. Milton James Graham, Jr., beloved husband, father, and friend died of acute myelogenous leukemia on April 4, 2014. His family was at his side caressing and embracing him with quiet conversation, sweet music and prayers until the end. Born in Kingston, PA on July 31, 1931, he spent his childhood in Syracuse, NY. A veteran of the Korean Conflict, he served four years with the Coast Guard and achieved the rank of First Class Radioman. He resided with his family in Franklin, MA and Manhattan Beach, CA while working for Hamilton Avnet Electronics. His career spanned thirty-four years when he retired in 1993 as Senior Vice President of Sales for Avnet Electronics and Corporate Vice President of Avnet, Inc. Milt was a talented man who loved to sing and dance and he was known to liven up any get-together with a funny joke or anecdote. His passions included sailing, camping, skiing, golfing, cooking and gardening. Milt was president of the Manhattan Beach Community Garden and Volunteer Docent for the Manhattan Beach Growing Great gardening program at Pacific Elementary School. He was an energetic grandfather who loved spending time with his grandchildren, including teaching them the art of baking the perfect Christmas cookie, insisting it was important not to waste the dough! His family would like to thank Dr. Sun, Dr. Hool, their staff, and the exemplary nurses and doctors at Providence Little Company of Mary Hospital, for helping Milt fight for as long as he could. He was devoted to Priscilla, his loving wife of 56 years and he was cherished by his daughters, Deborah Sax, Tamara Graham, Laura Sutton and Pamela Loiola, and his sons-in-law, Jeffrey Sutton and Jose Loiola. He was most proud of his grandchildren, Lauren Bliss and her husband, Robert, John Sax, Graham Sutton, Juliana, Sophia, Priscilla, and Victor Loiola, and his great-grandson, Ethan Bliss, all of whom live in California. The family is planning a celebration of his life later this year. "I think a successful life is one in which you have many friends. And you look at the world through positive eyes. You're not always taking the world apart and trying to mold it into the way you think it should be. Rather, you accept what life brings and stay happy and grateful for what you have." ~Milt Graham.
