Obit – Jay Graf

Julius J. “Jay” Graf, former publisher of the Hermann Advertiser-Courier and president of the Missouri Press Association in 1966, died Friday afternoon, May 28.

His daughter, Karen Gillig, said her father, age 94, had been ill for some time and had been unresponsive for two days.  He just quit breathing, so it was very peaceful, she said.

Jay and his late wife, Eunice, were long-time members of the press association and attended district press meetings throughout the state.  They were avid golfers.  Jay served as MPA president during the association’s centennial year.

Here is the funeral notice from the Post-Dispatch:
