Memories Timeline


  1. Thoughts and prayers for the family. So sorry for your loss, Ralph will be greatly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

  2. Deepest heartfelt sympathy to Ralph’s family and friends. My mom and I met Ralph along with many other folks at Hardee’s about 6 years ago as she decided to attend Cardiac Rehab Exercise Classes a couple times a week after suffering a heart attack. At some point later Ralph was also attending exercise classes at The Fitness Center. He always sat at what we call “The Round Table” filled with his friends, some of which are also no longer here to bless us with their presence. They are all truly missed just as much as we miss hearing Ralph ask……Y’all going to the gym today?! Ralph, like a bright light always had kind words and a smile for everyone and he will be be missed by all that knew him. 🌞
