Graham got his start in the industry as a salesman. His family owned a distributorship in San Antonio, South Texas Serum, that he eventually purchased and became the sole owner. Eventually, Graham sold South Texas Serum to MWI Veterinary Supply, which was looking to expand into the Texas market.
“Graham was an avid sportsman from an early age, hunting with his dad, brother and friends on various hunting leases and on the family ranch near Jourdanton, Texas,” his obituary noted. “His first job in high school was at Nagel’s Gun Shop in San Antonio where he became an expert in all things related to hunting and firearms. He also worked at San Antonio Gun Club and was a life-long member. These interests continued throughout his life, along with a love for boating and fishing on the Texas Coast. He enjoyed these activities with his sons, family and friends, and always had a hunting dog by his side.”
