Not sure what to say?

Coach Hale was my gym teacher for three years (1963,64 and 65) at Hillside Jr. High School in Salt Lake City.
He was a true gentleman and one of the most impactful instructors I ever had. My deepest condolences and thoughts. Ed Sweeney

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Ralph, it was an honor to serve with you on the PC School Board. You really made difference.

My deepest condolences. Blessed to know him as a great mentor, and friend at Hillside Jr. High. Dick Milne (Salt Lake City).

I'm sorry I was away and didn't see this notice until just now. To all the other accolades mentioned in the obituary, Coach Hale and the Hale family were the best neighbors anyone could have. We could always count on coach, whether for a ride to school or an encouraging word. I believe he's the only teacher I ever had at Hillside who never yelled at me. Which may say something about me, but even more about Coach Hale. Our thoughts are with you Mrs Hale, Denise, Cindy and Kerry. We were...

Coach Hale, You taught so many insignificant boys over those Hillside Jr. High years. i hope you can take joy knowing how much you influenced their lives with your goodness.

Thank you Mr. Hale for believing in your students over the years. You are remembered as an influence for good in my life at Hillside Jr. High 1968 - 1970. RIP and bless you and your family.

Ralph will be in my memories forever. He was the coach for our slow pitch softball team for a few years in the late 60's and early 70's. I have in my heart very precious things about him. I would see him on the 3rd base coaching side. I liked when he swung him as to keep going to home plate. He is undoubtedly the best coach and teacher I have ever had. Thanks Ralph, I will never forget you. God bless you and yours.
