My sympathies and prayers to all…Ralph was a really nice man and friend to all…He will be missed…
Johnny, Nancy, and family, Bob and I will be away tomorrow and won’t be able to attend your Dad’s service. We enjoyed knowing your Dad during our time with him at the Cascades. He was such a fine dedicated worker. He surely loved his family. We have you all in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Bob&Bonnie
Had the pleasure of working with Ralph for 18 years on the cascades golf course. He was one of my best friends. And we still stayed in touch after I left there so known him for 40 years. Prayers to the family for your loss.
Knew Ralph ,he went by Stuart in first grade at Ashwood, Mrs Shaver was our teacher. He always was a good guy through the years. Heard from He and Wanda every year. Sorry to hear of his passing. Dreama & Buddy Mines
Dad was my rock, my best friend, and my hero. Through struggles on my own he would tell me that I would be alright and he was proud of me. I was his mini me so much so that Mom would call me “Little Stuart”. He worked so hard for so many years wanting us to learn to do the same, yet he thought Johnny and I worked too hard and too much. He loved us both, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and had a special place in his heart for Nancy (who he considered an angel for all she did) and Kathy and Joe. My world will never be the same without him. We loved and missed Mom so much. I cherish all the times we would share memories and stories of special times with her. I know they are together in heaven, no more pain, no more sickness. I will always remember Mom’s laughter the last time we talked just as I will always remember the last words Dad spoke to me, “I love you too.”
