Hey Mary Clark, I just heard about Uncle Ralph. I’m so sorry. I know the past several years have been rough on him. I loved him dearly and have SO many wonderful memories of him and the time I spent with him. He was a great uncle in every sense of the word. He will be missed! Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

I'm sorry for your loss, Mary Clark. I will never forget your dad's kindness when Robert passed away. When Ralph opened his house for Christmas, he always extended an invitation to me and the kids. I appreciated that so much. It's hard when you lose a parent; you lose that anchor, that sense of stability and normalcy. Know that you and your family are in my and Robby's thoughts and prayers. If I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to ask. Take care.

My deepest sympathies to you all in Ralph's passing. I met Ralph in the 80s when he worked for Virco and came to visit our business in San Antonio. He was quite the character. Always had a smile on his face and a story to tell. He will be greatly missed.

Ralph was a very good friend during our time together at Virco. He was an exceptional sales manager for many years and played a major role in the success of the company. I remember him best as a friendly, fun-loving character who enjoyed having a good time and made sure everyone around him did as well. He will be missed by many.

MC -
I was so saddened to hear of Ralph's passing.

I have nothing but fond memories of my times with him. I remember him being kind to me, taking me on adventures, and teaching me lots of fun stuff. I still remember spending time at his house while my parents were on a trip and all the fun we had.

Time moves all of us apart eventually, but I've never let go of my fond memories with Ralph (quite a few include you as well ;) ). He was unique in my life. I'm so grateful I was able to spend a small amount of time with him at my folks house while he was still doing his own thing ;)

His passing has hit much harder than I expected and I can only imagine how you must feel. Please accept the most sincere condolences from my family and especially myself.

I'll miss you "Trashbag."

I’m so sorry I did not know about Ralphs passing until today. I remember one time we had a party at his house and the next morning Ralph had noticed someone had put maracas in a mounted bass mouth that was on the wall. Ralph thought that was so funny.

Dear Turney Family:

Becky and I were so sorry to learn of Ralph's passing and we offer all of you our sincere condolences over your loss.

Ralph hired me as a Sales Rep for Virco in 1997, and I had the privilege of working for/with him for five years. I learned a lot from Ralph, and he always treated me and Becky like family.

He will be greatly missed.

With love and prayers,

Bob (and Becky) Sigsbee

"Love the people God gave you, because he will need them back someday."
