News of Graham’s passing was announced by his ex-wife Susan Lavelle, who shared a touching tribute to the father of her child on Facebook:

“It is with deep profound sadness to say that Gary Graham, my ex-husband, amazing actor and father of our beautiful only child together, Haylee Graham, has passed away today,” Lavelle writes. “We are completely devastated especially our daughter Haley. His wife, Becky was by his side.”

Lavelle remembers Graham’s “funny, sarcastic sense of humor,” but also notes that he was “kind” and “fought for what he believed in” as a “devout Christian.” More than anything, though, he was a loving father to their daughter, so Lavelle asks for prayers as she “navigates through this thing called grief.”

“Fly high into the heavens Gar!” Lavelle’s message concludes. “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.”

In addition to starring in Alien Nation, and for boldly going where no man has gone before, Graham’s TV credits also included roles on shows like Ally McBeal, CHiPs, The Commish, Diagnosis Murder, The Dukes of Hazzard, Eight is Enough, The Incredible Hulk, JAG, Nip/Tuck, Remington Steele, Starsky and Hutch, T.J. Hooker, and Walker, Texas Ranger.
