Graham was born in Edmonton and as an armed forces dependent lived in many places across Canada and in Europe. He joined a Bank after school and worked his way through positions of progressively increased responsibility with 3 different Banks over 38 years until retiring as an executive officer. After retirement, he held a contract position as Ombudsman for a bank for 15 years as well. During his career, he worked with many volunteer organizations and service clubs. He moved to Kaslo in 2003 and has continued to work with numerous organizations since his arrival. While not overly technically adept his overall business experience will hopefully be useful to KIN.
