Ralph was born November 8, 1937 in Bishop, California to Mable and Jim Palsrok. The youngest of 3 boys, he grew up on a ranch in Round Valley School through the 8th grade and went on to attend high school at Bishop Union High. He lived his entire life here in the Owens Valley where he met his wife Marty, they married in June of 1957. They raised 2 sons here in the valley; Ralph and Raymond (Randy). He drove trucks hauling cattle and hay. He then started Ralph's Hay Loading, delivering hay locally. Many locals knew and respected him as a fair business man whom they could rely on. Ralph will be missed by his family and those who knew him. Ralph is survived by his oldest son Ralph Ralsrok II, numerous nieces and nephews, 2 grandchildren Zack and Randall (Randy), and 3 great-grandchildren Jacob, Christopher and Elizabeth.

I am so sorry for your loss. When Ralph drove for Western Gillette back in the 1960's, My family was living in an old cabin in Old Mammoth . We lived at the top of a big hill that most trucks couldn't get up in winter. The only Christmas we had was from the Sears catalog. Ralph and his Western Gillette semi was the only one to make it up our road! It was quite an occasion when he would show up with Christmas presents in a white-out! We called Ralph Santa Claus!

I helped Ralph deliver hay to Sam Cleland up at Warm Springs years ago. He couldn't get anyone else to help him (it was Thanksgiving Day). He thrilled at trying to knock me off the hay wagon we were off-loading onto. Great memories !
