Crazy guy...sometimes some off-the-wall ideas...a great drummer...and a good friend.
The guy who could sometimes sleep 24 hours at a time...
may you now truly rest in peace. So long, pal...

I remember Ralph as a good drummer and could play Wipeout with headsets on.He lived up the road from me amd we would always hang out when we could. At our 30th we both joked about each others demise so his death comes as a great shock to me and I want his family to know they have my greatest sympayhy and condolonces truelly I!ll miss his laughter.

Ralph and I go back to grade school and we attended the same church...Ralph seemed to always get in trouble esp in grade school(3rd grade if I remember...Mrs. Louden's class)..he was great playing the drums in band...several yrs after graduating....I met Ralph and his wife....he seemed so happy..Ralph's mom was the best...the kindest person...Ralph too was a nice guy and I will always remember him with a good thought....Marjie

Ralph and I went to the same church. We were in catechism together and always getting into trouble. He had the kindest parents. I know from where his kindness and love came. I remember sitting with Ralph and his wife at one of our reunions. She was so sweet. They were so happy. It was sad such a wonderful person was taken so early. I missed seeing you the last reunion. May you rest in peace!

I will always remember Ralph as Ducky or the Duck. We went to Trinity Lutheran Church along with Karen and Marjie. Our youth group went to YPS conventions and the most memorable was our trip to Garfield NJ. I don't think any of us will forget our adventure and our "growing up weekend". I will never forget Ralph pushing me in the grocery cart at Rites of Spring at ISU. I bet my mom is still teasing you in heaven...she adored you. Ducky, we will miss you at the reunion. With fond memories, the Christensen Family
May your memory bring no sadness, but only the fond memories of the way you were.

I was so sad to hear that Ralf had passed on. We sat next to each other through 4 years of home room with Mr Herd. He was a very kind person and had a quirky sense of humor that was all Ralph. What a great person.I know that everyone who knew Ralph misses him. May we see you in Heaven.
