I was proud that Ralph was awarded "The Buck O'Neil" red seat at Kauffman Stadium, and humbled that he let Sue and myself share his moment with him. Ralph was honestly the nicest, sincerest, gentleman I ever met. He is what you would want every American to emulate as a friend, father, employee and a man.....true blue all the way. My childhood memories would be rather empty without Ralph and his wonderful family living and sharing their lives with all us Vance's two doors up the street. My best to Georgia, Mike, Kurt, Bobby, Cheryl and all your family, friends.
Ralph was a valued employee of the Metropolitan Community Colleges for many years. You could always count on Ralph to do his job in a competent, friendly way. Even after he retired, one would see him and Georgia at college events. Sympathy and best wishes to his extended family
Ralph was the best grandfather anyone could have ever asked for. I have so many amazing memories of all my time spent with him. He will be missed!
My sincere condolences to Ralph's family. Ralph was my bowling team mate and was always so much fun and a really great bowler also. He was a kind, sweet man and will be greatly missed by everyone.
Our Prayers go out to all that loved and knew Ralph such a nice man and always seemed happy and smiling . My In-laws loved Ralph and Georgia and were Great friends for a life time. I know Ralph already has his wings.
