After years of having a father who was always there for him,
Randy Martinez has found a way to honor the man who deserves it now
more than ever.
In February, Martinez’s father Randy Graeff was diagnosed with
stage four cancer. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy
treatment. Martinez wanted to give something back to his father and
decided a fundraiser to raise money for the rising medicals costs
would be the best way.
From 8-11:30 a.m. on May 16 at Frontier High School, 589 South
Banner St. in Elizabeth, Martinez, other family members and friends
of Graeff are hosting a pancake breakfast and silent auction in his
Graeff, who is a third-generation native of Elbert County, has
always been a hard worker in his excavating business as well as
every other part of his is life, including being a dedicated father
and husband, Martinez said. Throughout his life, he has built four
houses on his own and is willing to help anyone in need of
electrical or carpentry work or guidance. As a father Martinez said
even though he was rebellious growing up, Graeff never bailed oh
“He has always been dependable,” he said. “He sacrificed his
whole life for his kids and he always helped me out.”
Martinez said Graeff has always been the man who would give the
shirt off his back to a person who needed it and that is why he
decided to host the fundraiser. Martinez said he wanted to help his
father and make him feel comfortable and loved.
“I don’t have all the money he needs, so we wanted to do as much
as we can,” he said.
Martinez is also participating in the Elbert County Relay for
Life in June in honor of his father’s fight against cancer and
other family members and friends who have lost their battles to
cancer. His team name is Generations for the Cure and he already
has 15 members.
Those who attend the fundraiser can donate money to his relay
team or to Graeff. For more information contact Martinez at
