Ralph was born in Plainfield, NJ and raised in Springfield, NJ. He was a talented athlete and a star member of the football, baseball, and basketball teams at Jonathan Dayton Regional High School in Springfield, NJ. He could make anyone laugh and people were immediately drawn to his outgoing personality, clever nicknames, and ability to bond with anyone.
Ralph and his wife Cyndy were the third-generation owners and operators of Florence Ravioli in Scotch Plains, NJ from 1976 until his retirement in 2019. The business was a staple of the area for generations. Ralph was a member of Gamblers Anonymous where he sought to help others learn to live with addiction. He served as an inspiration to many and recently celebrated his 25th anniversary with the program. Whenever possible Ralph would be golfing with his friends. He was always up for 18 or even 36 holes.
Ralph is survived by his wife of 45 years, Cyndy; his two sons Anthony (Brian Jakulevicius) and Ralph Jr. (Michael Maguire); his sister Loretta Gelfand (Michael); and his nieces Pamela Gelfand, Ann Marie Betlejewski, and Marissa Alibrando.Read More
