Ralph was married on January 17, 1952 to Berniece.  They raised four children together.  He began his working career at Liberty Glass Company in Sapulpa and remained employed there until his retirement many years later. He was a good strong man, blessed with mechanical, electrical and carpenter skills and always willing to help with any projects someone may have going on. Even with limited formal education, Ralph was always interested in learning something new. He would work relentlessly on something until he got it “just right”. He was a very simple, honest, hard-working mostly quiet and soft-spoken man, who loved his family with all his heart. Ralph enjoyed life, his family and the lifelong friends he made along the way. Most importantly, he loved the Lord.
