David graduated from Enid High School in 1969. After graduation, he started helping his father and other family friends in the construction business.
He married Sue Dow on August 7, 1970 and they had three children. They moved to Hobbs, New Mexico, and David worked in the oilfield industry for a brief period of time. They returned to Enid, where he started Dave Graham Construction and later moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where he continued to expand his construction business. From there he perfected the art of masonry and became one of the best around. He returned to Enid in 1997 to be closer to family. He was a devoted father and grandfather, always working hard in order to provide for his family.
He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren at Keystone Lake, camping and boating. Dave was a bit of a daredevil, he liked fast cars, boats, and motorcycles.
