I used to work with this gentleman. He was an amazing character. Always looking out for other people, such a warm personality. I think he's going to leave quite a gap in lots of peoples lives, not just in Melksham. Thoughts go out to his family

I used to work in a local public house, and at weekends when we shut around 2am i used to pop to the garage on the way home and have a 5 min chat with graham, about the evening etc. such a nice bloke and all my thoughts are with his family right now. Least you know how much people cared about him, he was a great bloke.

Hi Everybody ,
Was with Graham new tears eve at garage , went home at 4.30 am , he taxt me at 5.35am was spending new year together , When he didn't arrive after 6 am i was so worried. Graham text me all through the nite , he would let me know who had been in garage, local gossip , he was always intrested in his customers and what was going on in the melksham community. Graham loved his job and often speak of his work collegues, customers and his family . He thought of everybody and was the most loving caring guy i could of ever met and spent the last 3 yrs with.

I had the pleasure of knowing Graham and this is very sad. He was such a lovely guy. Years ago after clubbing we used to get off the coach outside the garage rather than the town centre so we could have a laugh and a joke with Graham before heading home, he always had time for us youngsters, no matter what time of the night/morning it was! R.I.P Big G !
