Ralph was such a pleasure to be around...I was lucky enough to work for him during his time at Cullinan Properties and his positive attitude and enthusiasm was contagious. My husband and I will miss him at the Peoria City Golf Tournament...our prayers are with the Converse family.
To Ralph's family. We are all saddened by the loss of our friend and mentor. Ralph was IBM to many of us who joined under his leadership, even years later. He has left a lasting, positive mark on all of us. Please accept our sincere condolences.
I had the honor of getting to know Ralph over the last 2 years while I worked for the Chiefs. He is one of the kindest and friendliest people I have ever met and I will miss talking Illini sports and the Chiefs with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
