Donald Hamilton Graham (1930–2012)
Donald Hamilton Graham, founder and president of Graham Protection Services Ltd. of Mississauga, Ont., passed away last December.
Graham started the company in 1971, selling it to Wackenhut in 1997 when he retired. What began as a security guard and mobile patrol service provider, expanded to a full service alarm installation and central monitoring station company.
“His strength was his ability to provide an excellent level of customer service which enabled him to maintain multiple school boards on his client list for over 20 years,” remembers his son, Paul, who is president of Graham Alarm Monitoring. “His strength of character was his honesty and loyalty which allowed him to be such a success in his business career.”
He added that, “his true passion was his family.” Donald Graham leaves behind his wife of 63 years, Denyse, five children, 13 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
