Jack "Duke" C. Grazier III

August 24, 1979 ~ July 25, 2019 (age 39)

Jack “Duke” Calder Grazier III passed away in Watertown, NY on July 25, 2019. He was 39 years old. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to Cleveland Funeral Home, Watertown, NY.

Duke was a magnetic man who lived in many places – Texas, Georgia and Mexico – collecting lifelong friends at each stop. After meeting and marrying his true love, Laura, in Mexico, he finally settled with his family in Watertown, New York.

His wife and children were the most important part of Duke’s life. He was engaged in all parts of his children’s lives, having instilled the importance of kindness, honesty, and integrity.

He will forever be remembered for his unmatched wit, his fierce loyalty and, above all, his profound love for his family.

To all of us, Duke, was the true essence of a loving father guiding his children. We called him the “Best Dad in the World”.

He is survived by his wife, Laura Baron Grazier, and their beautiful children; parents, Victoria and Dr. John Savino, all of Watertown, New York, as well as his loving family across the world.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, July 31, from 5-7PM at 404 Sherman St., Watertown, NY, 13601. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 1, at 11AM at St. Anthony Church 850 Arsenal St., Watertown, NY, 13601. The family will gather privately after the funeral.
