Received from Geoff Sutcliffe

The sad news just arrived today which left me in disbelief. Ralph was a neighbour, a teammate and most importantly a friend. So many memories even though it’s been over 25 yrs. since I left Brooks. Ralph introduced the fellas to this new fangled “skateboard” years ago in Plaza Sports. First try and I was on my backside. That was my first and last attempt, ever. Ralph said, “these are gonna be big” all the while with that Ralphie smile and twinkle in his eye. What a great hockey player. Teammates on those old Blackhawk teams. Great stick handler but I remember him most for going toe-to-toe with a fella that was 6’4” and he at least got a draw. Fastball? “Hoover” played a lot of 3rd. for the Hi-waymen and my most vivid memory is him ripping a single down the line in the bottom of the 7th. as we moved on to win another championship in the Hat. And family? To you Patty, Jason & Stephanie my deepest condolences. You were all one of those families you never forget. So warm and caring. I know you have so many positive memories of your husband and dad. Draw on them to get you through this tough time. My thoughts are with you.

Received from Richard Braul

It was unexpected when I heard about Ralph's passing. I remember many enjoyable visits in the shop brainstorming ideas for building leafcutter bee equipment and talking about alfalfa seed agronomy. His enthusiasm was encouraging and he usually left me with renewed ambition. Ralph was always kind and generous to me. I'm sorry for your loss.
