SCOTTSDALE, AZ / WESTPORT, CONN
Lance J. Graber, 61, beloved husband of Pam Graber, died from complications related to brain cancer on November 5, 2022, at their home in Scottsdale, AZ, surrounded by his loved ones.
Lance was born in West Hempstead, NY, the son of Raymond and Eileen Graber. He graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania where he received bachelor’s and master's degrees. He had a long and successful career in real estate finance. Most recently, he served as a founder and principal at Front Range Capital, a real estate private equity firm he co-founded in 2010 which now has over $2 billion in assets under management. Lance devoted his free time to his children, Devin and Lindsey, coaching them in youth sports and being the loudest fan at every Staples High School sports game.
In addition to being a doting husband and father, Lance was a beloved son, sibling, uncle, role model, and friend. He displayed a love for life and determination to live it to its fullest, whether by going to metal concerts with his son, exploring Golden Gai in Japan with his daughter, or traveling to Vietnam with his wife. Lance consistently strived to be his best, always exploring new hobbies like skiing in his 30s or running over a thousand miles in a single year. He golfed and was a devoted member alongside Pam at both the Patterson and Estancia Golf Clubs.
He is survived by his wife Pam Graber, their children Lindsey and Devin Graber, and daughter-in-law Kait Graber; brothers Doug and Ray Graber (sp. Carol Graber), sister Nancy Graber, and brother-in-law Mark Walsh. He is also survived by his loving in-laws, Tom and Alma Walsh, as well as nephews and nieces whom he adored.
There will be a service to honor him on Friday at 12:00pm at St. Luke's Church, Westport. Interment will follow at Willowbrook Cemetery, 395 Main Street, Westport.
