Services for Phillip (Phil) Graham, age 75 of Killeen, Texas will be held Monday November 16th at 1PM at Broecker Funeral Home in Salado TX with Pastor David W. Lambert, presiding. 

Phil passed away on Tuesday, November 10, 2020,1:00 am at Temple Living Center East nursing home of congestive heart failure. He was born in Loris, South Carolina on July 14, 1945 to Marvadean Williams Graham Haley and Charles Bruster Graham. Although starting businesses in Shreveport, Louisiana, he and his wife Althia moved to Killeen in 1985 and resided in the Central Texas area for 35 years. He attended college and served in the Reserves but distinguished himself early as a nationally recognized salesman. Work colleagues dubbed him the Warthog because he worked harder and longer than most to achieve his goals. As a lifelong entrepreneur, Phil was most successful in real estate and insurance. He had an intuition about people that could not be duplicated.

Phil was a doting father and grandfather spending every spare hour with his family, part of which included his dog and beloved companion Sammy. Many hours were spent with his family at the ranch with horses and dogs plus weekends at the South Texas beaches. A great mentor and caretaker to his family he will be missed dearly. 

Phil is survived by his wife of 54 years, Althia Crosby Graham; daughters: Cynthia Ann Graham of Belton and her son James Phillip Hefner and his second daughter, Jennifer Leigh Graham of Salado and her children Weston White, Alexandria Rodgers, and Emily Rodgers whom he loved dearly. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Graham 1060 Great Oaks Salado, TX 76571. Arrangements are being handled by Broecker Funeral Home in Salado, TX.
