Obituary of Graham John Floto
It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of beloved son, grandson, brother and friend Graham John Floto on Wednesday April 12, 2023 at the young age of 16.
Graham was born on April 4, 2007 in Stamford, CT and spent his life growing up in Saint Petersburg, FL. He attended Shorecrest Preparatory School where he was known for his infectious smile, caring heart, quick wit and unwavering spirit. Graham was a true leader in his friend group and was admired for his creative mind and fierce loyalty.
Outside of school, Graham loved spending time with his family and friends. He was an avid fan of building and creating. He could often be found lost in a world constructing his next creation, only sharing with friends and family upon 100% perfection. Graham had a passion for the outdoors, particularly being out on the water, climbing mountains or downhill skiing.
Graham’s loss is immeasurable. The impact of his absence will be felt deeply by those who knew and loved him. He is survived by his parents John Floto and Vanissa Ma, brothers James (17) and Rylan (11), grandfather Ron Floto and wife Nancy, grandmother Sara Floto, and grandparents, Khiem Ma and Hao Thi Ma. He is also survived by many loving cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.
Graham’s family will be gathering privately on April 24th from 10:00-1:00 at Anderson McQueen Funeral Home, 2201 Dr MLK Street N, St. Petersburg. A public Remembrance will be held at Shorecrest Preparatory School, 5101 1st St NE, St. Petersburg at 2:00 in the Crisp Gym. All those who wish to pay their respects to the Floto family are welcome to attend the Remembrance.
