Ralph was a great guy loved to talk hunting and fishing he would go out of his way to say hello to me. I feel bad I never made it down to get out in the blind with him he will be missed.

Just wanted to say what a very sweet guy. Always had a story to share, a memory or something exciting happen in his life. Didn't know Ralph for long, but he was always polite and held his family close. May he be at peace and May God bless his family and watch over them during these times of sorrow.

Simple words-T you were a great guy since we met in high school, enjoyed hunting and fishing with you over the years. Glad I saw you last year at pressleys and we had time to talk about old times.

I am in New Mexico bow hunting for elk this week and won’t be able to attend services, I am going to kill a big one in your memory.

God bless your family and when the gates of heaven open say hello to our other Manual teammates that are there too.

I grew up with Ralph. We lived next door to him on Marquette St. We walked to school together. My grandfather would take us hiking in the woods behind Madison Park. I remember going to Dickson Mounds with him and his Mom and Dad.
I remember one Halloween Ralph dressed up as a girl. He reminded me of Margaret on the old Dennis the Menace tv show. I also worked with Ralph at Redco for over 16 years. Ralph was a great guy and friend. I am going to miss him.

I lived by Ralph Deb & the 2 girls for quite a few years
We were good friends & did quite a bit together.
I feel so bad about the loss of a friend at such a young age & Im very sorry for his wife Lisa & his beautiful daughters Amber & Kari Lee. I remember Ralph always calling her Kari Lee.
Rest in peace Ralph. You wont be forgotten.

His Journey’s Just Begun
Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.
