Ronald Courtney Graves, 89, of Pueblo West, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Saturday, November 14, 2020, after a long journey of congestive heart issues. During his life, Courtney enjoyed hiking, nature, photography, hunting, and traveling to 22 countries. He retired from the Colorado Mental Health Institute after 33 years as a psychiatric social worker.
Courtney is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Jeanne Graves along with his four children: Gary Graves (Lucia), Ellyn Reynolds (Stuart), Glenn Graves, and Lori Unruh. He was a devoted grandfather to Nathan Koury, Danielle Graves, Kyla Kochenberger (Luke), Ryan Graves, William Graves, Vincent Unruh, Kamille Koury, and Olivia Unruh.
His faith prepared him for an everlasting life with Jesus Christ as described in John 3:16. “Be There” was his favorite last message to all the family.
