06/21/1919 - 12/26/2011
Ralph (Dad) found eternal peace after celebrating a final Christmas surrounded by his family, and tended to by his loving caregivers. He passed comfortably
He is survived by Dolores, Ralph, Jr. (Patti), Rick (Gigi) and his brother and sisters Anne, Angela, Jennie, Pauline and Frank. He is now joined with his mother and father and brothers Joe and Reyes in God's arms. Also surviving are two step great grandchildren, Ella and Mia Rose, and scores of nieces and nephews who loved Uncle Ralph very dearly, and who were all so helpful in his later years as age made daily chore increasingly difficult. Our family can never thank them enough. His extended family is considerable (friends and neighbors), but none more dear than his devoted neighbor Janine, so loving, so reliable.
Words are inadequate to express proper gratitude to his caregivers, Liana and Violet, of Bonita Home Care who so lovingly saw to Ralph's needs in his final days.
