Ralph was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He married his high school sweetheart, Colleen, in 1984 and the two relocated to Orlando soon after. He began working at Roberts Supply Inc. later that year and remained with them until his passing, nearly four decades later. Together, he and Colleen raised three children - Maggie, Joey, and Emilee - whom he was so proud of.
Ralph was an avid sports fan and could talk endlessly about whatever game was on TV. His favorite teams were the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins. He enjoyed spending time outside, playing with the family dogs, lifting weights, and eating his favorite snacks. He took pride in his work and was dedicated to his job, but family was always his top priority. Those who knew him would say that he was a simple man, yet truly one of the good ones.
