Ralph E. Knapp Jr. Obituary
Ralph E. Knapp Jr. October 3, 1955-July 25, 2018 Ralph Edward Knapp Jr., a 28-year resident of Yucaipa, passed away surrounded by loved ones on the morning of July 25, 2018. He is preceded in death by his mother, Dolores Fink. Ralph was born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 3, 1955. Ralph and his family moved to southern California and he grew up in the San Fernando Valley. After high school, he joined the Army and served in the 9th infantry division as a cannoneer. He was honorably discharged as a sergeant. From there he moved to Redlands and enjoyed a 25-year career as a civil servant with the Redlands Police Department. Ralph will be remembered as a life-long jokester and prankster, but will be especially thought of as one who was always there to help others. He was also a true outdoors-man who had a love for the California desert. He is survived by his father, Ralph Knapp Sr., his children Lindsay Wakefield and Daniel Knapp, and his grandson, Henrik Wakefield. A celebration of life will be held at Redlands First United Methodist Church, 1 East Olive Ave, at 10:30am on Saturday, August 25, 2018.
