Joseph Graham Musser our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Joseph Graham Musser, 71, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, Wednesday, June 5, 2019 in his home in Centennial Park, Arizona. Joseph was born September 29th, 1947 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Guy Hill Musser and Margaret Mae Graham. He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, one dear sister, and his daughter Naomi. Joseph is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, mothers, and numerous brothers and sisters.
Joseph is unwavering in his testimony of God, the gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed by Joseph Smith Jr., and the two great saving principles, Celestial Marriage and United Order. He is devoted and loyal to Priesthood and often quoted, ”if it’s Priesthood, it’s Yes.” Joseph maintained his faith and integrity through numerous challenges in life.
He served his community in many ways. Professionally he was an accountant and his skills were useful to many of his associates. For nearly thirty years he contributed his time as an instructor at the Centennial Park Academy, teaching math, science, drama, and accounting. He initiated and led the local intervention program for those struggling with addiction and served the governing board of Deseret Land and Trust for many years. Joseph has had a life-long love of music, enjoyed singing, and took every opportunity to participate in local choirs, including the church choir. He was very energetic and loved being involved with all community projects. Joseph was a patient, kind and loving family man with a generous and cheerful disposition. He will be missed by all who know him.
Thank you all for your faith, prayers and efforts for Joseph and his family!
