IN MEMORIAM – Mike Graham

In Memoriam - Mike GrahamThe IITPSA was saddened to learn of the recent passing of Michael Graham, one of its stalwarts from the Western Cape and extends its condolences to Mike’s family and friends.

Michael Hugh Graham was first admitted to membership of the IITPSA (the CSSA at that time) in February 1973 and was awarded a Fellowship of the Institute in 1993. He served the Institute in a number of roles, including that of Chapter Chair of the Western Cape Chapter and he continued to attend Chapter events and the Chapter AGM until very recently.

In paying tribute to Michael Graham, Peter Aspinall, a Past President of the IITPSA commented: “Mike was the main organiser of the IITPSA Western Cape IT Personality of the year award and the awards black tie gala dinner for many years, enjoying the support of all the major IT users and large suppliers. He also was the driving force behind the Western Cape Chapter ex chairman’s luncheons which he organised a couple of times a year. Mike was always very passionate about the IITPSA and was always willing to step forward when things needed to be done”.

He is fondly remembered and will be sadly missed by his many colleagues and friends at the Institute.
