I met Ralph in Santa Ana back in 2011. We had some good times in the field wanting to choke out the same crew leader! Great laughs when we ran into each other in the planning office reminiscing about all our field shenanigan's. You will be missed Ralph.

Rest Easy My Brotha.

I had the good fortune to spend many good times with Ralph including this weekender to Laughlin many years ago! Ralph had a great spirit and was always a stand up guy. Rest in peace my friend.

I worked with Ralph for many years. He was hilarious in the office, I will remember all of those funny moments and conversations we would have about the military and his time in the Navy and my time in the Marines. Ralph was a good soul, my thoughts go out to his wife and children that Ralph would speak so highly of and his family. You will be missed Ralph, Anchors Aweigh!

My little brother Ralph was a kind soul. From the time he was born till the time he left this earth he was an incredible light with so much love to give. He was smart funny capable lovable his compassion knew no bounds. He was as honest as the day is long. He was such a hard worker and dedicated to making sure things were always Dunn right. He loved the beach and the Angels. He was the luckiest man alive to have Monica and there 2 children Ralphy 7 & Bella 5. (His words). He fought long and hard to stay with his family as long as God would allow. I am blessed his loyalty and trust helped me learn and grow as I needed to through the years. He was my Angel here and now will watch over all of us. He was proud to be in the Navy and a veteran. There will never be enough words to say what Ralph meant to me but I’m so thankful I’m trying because of him. My little brother taught me through his quiet ways the easier road to a happy life. He never judged or made you feel less. He was inspiring. He is forever in my heart. He’s with my Daddy, Brother Art, Brother Donald, Aunt Ann, Aunt Neicie, Aunt Rita, Aunt Deena , Aunt Nellie, Aunt Betty, Uncle Ralph, Uncle Charles, Uncle Robert, Uncle Harold, Uncle Jackson, Uncle Donald, grand nephew Bryce Milnik, and now there together as the Lord team and as my daddy used to say “Play Ball”. ❤️❤️💪🙏🏻
