He is survived by his children, Dora, Arthur, and Richard; sibilings, Wayne, Diane and Connie; stepchildren, Michelle, Cindy, Rachel and many beloved grandchildren.

Ralph was born March 1, 1931 in Freemont, SK.

Ralph enjoyed warm weather and traveling around, visiting friends and family. He lived mostly in Arizona and Florida in his later years. He was charismatic, intelligent and stoic; strict and stern, yet caring and generous; brutally honest and outspoken; respected by all. Sharp as a tack until the end. He was greatly loved and will be very missed.
