So sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. He was one of the nicest persons you could meet a true gentleman kind and caring. A pleasure to work with and a dedicated employee. A friend to many and liked by all. He will be missed.

Ralph was my cousin but he was so much more than that. We keep in contact over the years all tough he was over twenty years older than I and we lived many hundred miles apart. He would make many trips to see me even when I lived in west Texas. He was the most gentle soul I have ever known and I will miss our frequent conversations about travel, careers, and family. Rest In Peace my dear friend. Dave

Ralph was a great person. We had many conversations at WIBS as he picked up paint to do work at the cottages for Gail and Darryl. RIP Ralph...

Just the nicest guy in the world. Ralph was our organist and lector at St. John's, and was a terrific role model for our motley gang of altar boys. Ralph was generous, kind, and funny; even though I hadn't seen him in many years it was good just knowing that he was part of the world.

Ralph was a good neighbor and friend, we share chores over the past 10 years since we moved in , lawn mowing, shoveling driveways and sidewalks. It was always a nice surprise to come home after a late day to find Ralph was keeping up with snow removal. I'd catch the next snow fall, but you had to be fast a quiet or Ralph would stop me before I finished. There was one Saturday when it was taking me a while to get out and shovel snow; I looked out the window and there was Ralph walking behind the Green Machine coming up the sidewalk. At that same time one of our delivery drivers at Griffith Energy was making a deliver at our house, I listened to some razzing at work for making Ralph clear my sidewalk for a while. We had a lot of chats; talking to Ralph was like talking to a parent or grand parent, you could just talk about anything. Ralph will be missed.
