Ralph Roland Justice

May 30, 1940April 1, 2019

Ralph R. Justice passed away April 1st, 2019 at 12:09am surrounded by family and loved ones. He was born and raised in rural Gilbert, West Virginia where he was schooled and proud of having played on a championship junior high basketball team. Basketball was a sport he maintained an appreciation for throughout his life. Out of public school he enlisted in the US Navy where he served aboard the USS Wadleigh and was part of the US blockade during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Ralph wed Judith Gail Foster in December of 1961 and together they raised their three children, Tammy, Roland and James. They remained devoted in marriage to one another until Judy passed in March of 2015. Ralph was a gifted largely self-taught mechanic and handyman with a curiosity and talent to repair and construct. In addition to being a heavy equipment operator, he owned and operated his own appliance repair service for many years. He was admired for his ability to work with his hands and it was that talent and dedication to being productive that was central to every occupational role he took on in life. He was a believer and an example of the rewards of hard work. He was devoted to his family and community, and adored his pets. Ralph was a cherished neighbor and friend to all that knew him. Always quick witted and able to charm with a story, he was always willing to help others. Sacrifice came easy to him. Ralph is survived by his three children, Tammy (Larry) Barber, Roland (Vicki) Justice and James (Tonya) Justice; six grandchildren, Christopher, Jordan, Erin, Emily, Paige and Kasey and five great grandchildren, Avery, Nora, Claire, Finlay and Jaxon and brother Roger (Sue) Justice. He was preceded in death by parents, Ralph and Jesse Justice Sr. and his sisters Lorraine and Nancy. Memorial service will be held at 3pm on Saturday April 20, 2019 at the Webb Noonan Kidd Funeral Home. Condolences may be left for the family at

You have our sympathy on the passing of your father. We met Mr. Justice by chance when we desperately needed our washer repaired. He then became our "go to" repairman . He was always honest with us and would tell us what he'd do in our position...we always appreciated that. We last saw him in Meijer shopping . Such a nice man!
