I always enjoyed conversations with Ralph. A great friend to all. Always kept the John Deere in tip top shape, and cleaned it too. A true gentleman and will be missed.

We will miss Ralph especially when the lawn mower breaks down!  Ralph could fix anything and always had the right tools.  He took the time to explain things to us.  Ralph was a trooper and worked as long as he possibly could.  Rest in peace and know that you are missed by many of us.

Ralph was a good man and neighbor. We will certainly miss his friendship along with his quick sense of humor that always had us laughing.  Rest in peace Ralph!
