Mowat, Graham Alexander
October 7th, 1933 to October 27, 2022
Graham Mowat passed away peacefully, at home on Thursday, October 27th, 2022 having reached his 90th year. Son of Godfrey and Celia Mowat (Dunsford) of Campbellton, New Brunswick. Also predeceased by siblings Adelaide, William (Bill), Daryl and Glen. Graham is sadly missed by his loving wife Lois Mowat (Craig), his sister, Julia, brother Douglas, both of Red Rock, Ontario and extended members of his clan.
Graham was a proud retired member of the Royal Canadian Air Force having begun his career as a draftsperson in Trenton, Ontario. His work culminated in his civilian years as a member of the National Research Council where he worked with Canada's first astronauts to develop equipment they would operate during Space Shuttle missions. He also represented Canada in technical meetings with NASA officials in the United States. He and Lois retired to a home they built at Portland, Ontario on the Big Rideau Lake where Graham turned his attention to preserving the lake's flora and fauna as an executive member of the Big Rideau Lake Association. He was an avid golfer, curler, boater, and genealogist. In later years, Graham and Lois called Perth home. Their extended families are forever grateful for the care and compassion of Dr. Neel Chadha and the entire management team and staff at Lanark Lifestyles Retirement Residence.
