American Veteran 01

Vernon Preston Graham

December 11, 1944 ~ August 11, 2019 (age 74)


Vernon Preston Graham, age 74 years, passed away on Sunday, August 11th at Baylor Medical Center in Waxahachie Texas.

Preston was a proud veteran of the Vietnam War.  He served as a specialist in the 13th Artillery of the Army and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service.    Preston was a cross country truck driver and those who knew him could always count on a tall tale/good story from his travels across the United States.   Preston never met a stranger and that trait along with his many travels resulted in countless friends all over the country.  Preston’s family was the light of his life and a source of never ending pride for him.  He lived life full of laughter, generosity and love.  He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Preston is survived by his wife, Ellen Graham, his children, Mechelle Foster, Aprill Graham and Sam Graham.   And, his 10 grandchildren, Jackson Curry, Katheryn Vaughan, Hannah Foster, Brandon Graham, Shay Graham,  Cory Graham, Samantha Graham, Mendy Graham, Josie Graham and Jax Graham. 

A special thanks to Waxahachie EMS and the Waxahachie Baylor Medical center for their amazing kindness, proficiency and honor given to Preston and his family during this difficult time. 

Services celebrating Preston's life will be held Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at two o'clock in the afternoon in the Pat Boze Memorial Chapel of Wayne Boze Funeral Home.
