GRAHAM, Ewen B. " Pip"
Pip was born in Calcutta, India on October 31, 1930, grew up in England and moved to Canada in 1956. He spent a full life at Graham Ranches at Millarville, Alberta, and Hornby Island, British Columbia. He gently passed away in Victoria on October 20, 2007. Pip was educated at Cambridge; there he met Nicki, his beloved wife of 54 years. Pip worked to develop the equestrian sport of 3-day eventing nationally and internationally as a course designer, technical delegate and organizer. His involvement in numerous Olympic Games were marked by professionalism and attention to detail. He founded The Tack Shop in Calgary, one of Canada's largest equestrian supply companies. An accomplished rally driver, he placed second overall in the 1966 Shell 4000 Rally with navigator Henry Acteson. In 1982, Pip and Nicki moved to Hornby Island. They explored the coast to Alaska on their boat Lonely Bird, and spent winters in Maui. Pip is remembered as a true gentleman, with a heart of gold and an incredible sense of humour. He will be missed by his wife Nicki and children Juliet, Arifin Andrew (Wiluya), Nicholas (Margot) and Tessa, and grandchildren Annie Bishop ONDA (Rob,) and Christopher and India GRAHAM, and brother Nigel and family of Nairn, Scotland. Donations in Pip's memory greatly appreciated: the Pacific Whale Foundation (www.pacificwhale.org) or the Canadian Council of Doctor Graham's Homes (P.O. Box 2325, Saint Marys, Ontario N4X 1A2).
