Graham Berkeley (1964-September 11 2001) was a concert violinist and director of product development for Compuware.
He was attending a software conference in Los Angeles.
He was survived by his parents, Charles and Pauline and brothers, Christopher and Roger and his boyfriend, Tom Fristoe.
He was born and raised in Shrewsbury, Great Britain, but loved America and the American culture. He lived in the United States for more than 10 years. Friends say he was an afficionado of South Park and Sex and the City. He was a free spirit, and he especially liked to dance at the late night gay clubs for which New York is famous, including Twilo and the Roxy, taking off his shirt to display a Maori tribal tattoo that ranged from his chest around to his back.
Before going to work for Compuware, Graham was a professional concert violinist. He graduated from the Royal College of Music in London. He performed with the BBC Concert Orchestra and orchestras in Germany. He loved opera and the theater, traveling to New York City regularly to take in a show. He even planned to relocate there in the Autumn.
