Abraham Durham

Aug. 28 1948 — July 29, 2014

Abraham Durham passed away, losing his battle to cancer but no longer in pain, on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. He was born Aug. 28, 1948, in Baltimore, Md. He was a resident of El Dorado County since moving from South San Francisco in 1980.

Abraham worked at Sambos, Lyons and Buttercup restaurants as a kitchen manager and cook. He was a kindred spirit who touched many people around him and could always light up a room. His humorous ways will not be forgotten. He leaves behind his wife Belinda, of 42-and-a-half years; two daughters, Constance Durham and Melinda Barrett; his casino partner and son-in-law, James Barrett; his loving grandson, Maurice Jared Calloway, who kept his grandpa up on his tablet/Nintendo games; and lastly his grandogs, George and Bogey, who unconditionally loved their grandpa.

Abe had many names; whether you called him the Can Man, Crazy Abe or Abey Baby, he was a blessing to this world who is greatly missed and loved. Rest in peace loving father, adoring husband, always in our hearts, Abraham.

Services will be held on Sept. 5, at 1 p.m., at Green Valley Church in Placerville, Calif.
