 He is pre-deceased by his father, James A. Graham and mother, Margaret M. Graham.
 He was born and raised in Millbrae, CA., and attended and played football at College of San Mateo and San Jose State.
 Paul honorably served as a deputy for the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department for over 20 years. He served in the Detention/Corrections, Patrol, Detectives, and Courts Division. He was essential in the development of the first Santa Clara County Police Motorcycle Riding Skills Competition, and the first Sheriff’s Vehicle Inspection Program.
 Paul was honored by the San Jose Exchange Club for his service to the community with the “Blue and Gold Wounded in Service Award”.
 During his career, he also received numerous letters of gratitude and commendation from citizens as well as other law enforcement personnel.

 He was a kind man with a big heart. Rest in peace, Paul.
