"I met Gary when I was just 20 years old and he was one half of the star duo on the TV series, Alien Nation. But he had already been in movies like 'All the Right Moves' with Tom Cruise.

"Of course, Gary has many more credits. Gary was funny, sarcastic sense of humor but kind, fought for what he believed in, a devout Christian and was so proud of his daughter, Haylee. This was sudden so please pray for our daughter as she navigates through this thing called grief.

"Fly high into the heavens Gar! Thank you for our journey and thank you for the gifts you left me in acting, my love of horses and most importantly, our daughter."

One of Graham's most recognisable roles was from his time on the Star Trek where he played Ambassador Soval from 2001 to 2005 for a total of 12 episodes. He also appeared as a supporting role in the late 80s show 'Alien Nation'.
