Wife of slain Krystal's manager shares memories

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - Krystal's night manager 50-year-old Jeff Mark Graff and his wife Lois would have celebrated 28 years of marriage this Saturday. Graff along with Jesse Aguilar were shot to death Wednesday morning at the Krystal restaurant in Decatur.

Graff had worked for more than a year at the Krystal on Highway 20 in Madison and had recently started working in Decatur. Just a day before he was killed, it was announced that Graff was being promoted.

Graff's wife is still in disbelief. She said her husband loved to tune pianos, was an excellent cook and volunteered a lot of his time at Messiah Lutheran Church in Madison.

His family released this statement:

"His strong faith and compassionate personality was consistently on display throughout his restaurant management career and church life. His kind nature, great sense of humor, and personal drive to help others was met only by his devotion to his wife."

Graff's visitation is set for 7 p.m. Saturday at Madison Chapel. A memorial service is planned for Sunday at 2 p.m. at Messiah Lutheran Church.
