On Saturday, January 16, 1954 in the City of East Chicago, Indiana, Ransom & Velma Graham, Sr., welcomed Quincy William Graham “QW”, the 8th of 10 children, into their family.
Quincy accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Zion Missionary Baptist Church in East Chicago. He attended Washington High School, class of 1972. He played Little League baseball at a young age through middle school. During his High School years, he switched to basketball. He loved sports especially the Chicago Bulls and Dallas Cowboys.
