I was extremely saddened to learn today of Ralph's passing. He and I first met at Westchester Community College in 1967. We played together on WCC's first football team. He was a good friend who always had a wonderful fun demeanor and never let anything bother him. Some of my memories: great dancer, good stong football player, friend to many, fun playing cards with him in the student lounge (A brishe); always willing to help; introducing us to the best restaurnet serving Linguini and calamari sauce in Pelham Bay, and many more. Ralph also knew my wife Susanne who was a year behind us at WCC, and who was one of the cheerleaders who supported all of us on the football team. He will never be forgotten and will always be in my prayers. Our world is a sadder place today; My sincerest condolences to his entire family. May God bless you all.

Ralph is the best friend someone could have growing up, and one of the best persons I have ever know, as is his entire family. I am sorry I did not see him much since moving, but I thought of him often, and will never forget the great times we shared.

He was such a nice man. I will miss gardening with him this Spring. I live across the street and he and I were always out there doing something and waving to oneanother. I will miss him
