His career path brought him to Indiana where he worked for M&S Ranch in Noblesville, Chris Volz Farms in Milan, and Robinson Construction, where he retired from the Ironworkers Union after 20 years of service. Ralph was an invested member of his community, serving as an EMT and firefighter as well as being an active member of the Lion’s Club.

Ralph enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, snow-birding to their home in Florida, golfing, fishing, watching Indiana Hoosiers basketball, and Reds baseball. He will be remembered by the love he had for his family, friends, and IU basketball, as well as the imprint he left within the lives of his community.
