    David G. Graves Fresno Sheriff's Department 11/5/1982.
    On November 5, 1982, at approximately 2335 Hrs., Deputy David Graves was on routine patrol on Shaw Avenue west of Hwy 99 in a marked Sheriff's patrol vehicle. As he passed westbound through the intersection of Shaw and Dickenson, his vehicle was struck by a northbound pick-up truck, which had run the stop sign. Deputy Graves suffered severe head injuries, which resulted in his death prior to his arrival at Valley Medical Center.
    Investigation by the California Highway Patrol revealed that the driver of the pick-up truck, a 28 year-old Clovis man, was intoxicated at the time of the crash. The suspect's wife was also killed in the accident. The suspect was subsequently sentenced to four years in state prison for the two deaths.
    During his time with the Sheriff's Department, Deputy Graves served in the Patrol Division, working out of the Selma Substation and in the Metro area. He was also a member of Search and Rescue.
    Deputy Graves was a native of Fresno and a graduate of Hoover High School and Fresno City College. Before entering law enforcement he had worked as a carpenter and had operated his own construction business. He had also served as a volunteer member of the FSD Search and Rescue Unit. Deputy Graves was survived by his wife, Karen, and his daughters, Kelly and Christine.
