Ralph graduated from Indian Lake High School in 1961 and joined the Air Force the same year, where he served until 1965. He worked at Rockwell International for many years and retired as a production engineer from Honda of America in 2004.

He attended First Church of God in Bellefontaine for over 50 years and was very active in his church, where he taught Sunday School and Church Time, and drove the church bus. His favorite place was in the nursery rocking the babies. Upon retirement, his ministry was in the kitchen, cooking for many church dinners and banquets, served by the senior group.

His gift of love to his family was cooking his special recipes for visits and holidays.
