my condolences to the family. I knew Ralph for a number of years after he retired to Skidaway Island. He was in my Golf group. We had a lot of good times together. One humorous moment was when Ralph took a healthy swing on the Teebox and the club came flying out of his hand right over our heads. From then on, every time Ralph teed up the ball we would all move far to one side and hold our hands over our heads. Ralph was a kind man and a good friend. I know he was devoted to his family and especially the grandchildren. He always talked about them and how proud he was.
