Today we honor a fallen Fresno County Deputy, Deputy David Gordon Graves who was killed in the line of duty November 5, 1982. David was killed by a drunk driver at the intersection of Shaw and Dickenson in Fresno County.
Deputies like David Graves, although their lives taken far too early, remind us in law enforcement to never forget their sacrifices. Deputy Graves worked to protect the citizens of Fresno County and we will always be grateful for that. We honor Deputy Graves each day with a highway sign on State Route 41 near Friant Road. Its memorials like these that not only honor David; they honor his family and provide a reminder to the community the sacrifice David gave to make them safe.
David left behind his wife and two daughters. David also left behind several other family, friends and co-workers who will never forget this tragic night of November 5, 1982.
Thin Blue Line...
We will always honor him and we will never forget him. God Bless.
