Graham was born on December 26, 2002, in Shreveport, Louisiana to Elisabeth Chaney Cason and David Lyn Wicker, Jr., and passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 12, 2021, in Shreveport, Louisiana.

From an early age, Graham had a passion for fishing and was a member of Byrd’s fishing team for two years. His love for Jesus could be seen in his love for others. He was happiest when the family dog, Sam, was in his lap.
