I was very sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. I have memories of Ralph and my dad (Jack Pavia) working on construction projects. He always had a kind way about him and a genuine smile. May the memories you have see you through this very sad and difficult time. Much love.

Sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. He was a nice guy with a great sense of humor. I recall him helping Jack Pavia at Spruce Grove in the 70's Paraffin days. Rest in peace Ralph

So sorry to hear of Ralph’s passing. I was just thinking of him the other day and how he would accompany my Dad on the trip to pick up my brother, Bobby from the service when he came home on leave.
