Diane and family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I was out of town for the memorial or I would have been there. There are many memories I have of conversations as he did electrical work for our family. And many memories of knowing all of you through the years at St. Clare. Cancer has taken too many good people from this life. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and I know that Ralph and Jeff are looking out for all of us. God’s peace,

May God be with his family during this time of sorrow to provide comfort to all.

Ralph was a good man that did a wonderful job with the Roger Bacon bowling team. His team always gave my team a close match. Our league, the GCL, will miss his input and dedication to high school bowling.

Ralph was our daughter’s coach on RB bowling team 2004 thru 2007. Ralph (with Chris Lasita) were truly dedicated coaches to these young athletes. Ralph gave so much of himself and our daughter really enjoyed her time on the bowling team. His passing is a tremendous loss to the bowling program and t the community. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.
