Graham was born and raised in Hednesford and attended the local schools in the area.
He went out to work in the Middle East before returning to home to work in Aberdeen and Manchester. With his best friend from Kingsmead School he founded a company called Total Access which is now based in Eccleshall.
He followed his father into local politics, only ever standing for a ward within Hednesford, such was his commitment to the local community.
Graham had an incredible gift for making everyone feel valued and would light up the room with his infectious personality. His passion, experience and the support he gave so many community groups will never be replaced.
Graham Burnett 22 March 1958 - 29 June 2017.
