I surely will miss my sweet brother and his easy going manner. No one could have a kinder, gentler sibling. He was a rock for me when I lost my husband, Paul.
Guess we always remember him being called "Splurge" by his buddies. Never quite knew what that was all about. Missed a part of his life when he was away in the Navy and then I got married and moved a long distance away.
We got together more after he and Carol were married.
My heart goes out to his special wife, Carol, and daughter, Holly and all the rest of his family. I wish them all love and peace.
My Uncle Ralph was always such a joy to be around, one of those rare people that just always left you feeling good inside. I will forever remember his warm smile and kindness. My condolences Aunt Carol, Holly, and Scott for his loss, and my prayers for God's Peace to be with you during this time.
RALPH WAS A LOVING BROTHER. MY CONDOLENCES TO CAROL AND HOLLY. HE LOVED YOU BOTH SO MUCH.
A man who chose his words by their importance and truth. A man who lived by respect, and was respected. May we continue to be humbled and inspired by his life, and learn to flow like a river.
TO MY BROTHER'S WIFE, CAROL, I CAN ONLY TRY TO SHARE YOUR GRIEF. YOU HAVE BEEN A DEVOTED WIFE, LOVER, FRIEND, AND COMPANION TO RALPH. HIS LIFE HAS BEEN MUCH RICHER, FULLER, AND HAPPIER WITH YOU AS HIS WIFE. YOU AND RALPH HAVE BUILT A GREAT LIFE TOGETHER AND MY WISH FOR YOU IS THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE ON TO BE THE PERSON HE WOULD WANT YOU TO BE. WE BOTH LOVED HIM DEARLY AND LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM BUT HIS MEMORY IS IN OUR HEARTS.
Ralph was truly a good guy and a gentle man. He will be so missed by so many. Our deepest sympathy, Chuck & Connie
