From his obituary in the New York Times:

“KAUFMAN, Tex., Feb. 13— L. C. Graves, the Dallas police detective who wrestled the gun away from Jack Ruby after he shot Lee Harvey Oswald, died on Saturday at Presbyterian Hospital here. Mr. Graves, who lived in Kaufman, a county seat 33 miles east of Dallas, was 76.

The cause was heart failure, his family said.

Mr. Graves was one of three Dallas law-enforcement officers detailed to escort Oswald, who had been charged with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, as he was being taken from the city jail to the county jail on Nov. 24, 1963.

In the moment after Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner, shot Oswald in the basement of the Dallas City Hall, Mr. Graves, who was wearing a dark hat and walking on Oswald's left, between him and Ruby, grabbed the revolver and Ruby's wrist.

The move prevented Ruby from firing a second shot, but Oswald died in surgery (not on the way to the hospital as first reported). Ruby, who was convicted of murder in 1964, died of cancer in 1967.

Mr. Graves was with the Dallas Police Department for 21 years, retiring in 1970.

Surviving are his wife, Myrt, and two sons, Terry and Gary, of Kaufman; a brother, Jesse, of Pittsburg, Tex.; a sister, Sue Sullivan of Mineola, Tex., and six grandchildren.”
