Ralph and I were patrol partners in the mid-seventies in the 75th Precinct in Brooklyn. Ralph was a kind and gentle man who saved my life on at least one occasion. I had the pleasure of visiting his home and meeting his family during that time. I particularly enjoyed meeting his mother, a lovely woman. Ralph's passing leaves the world diminished. It would mean a great deal to me if I could receive one of the laminated memorial cards from Ralph's wake. Although, I hadn't spoken to Ralph in sometime, I'm sure he would have chuckled when learning that I had moved to Texas and continued in law enforcement. My email is listed above. If a family member would email me a test greeting, I will provide them with my address. May God Bless you and keep you safe. Joe

Here was a man who, as large a man as he was, I never feared Ralph. As he seemed to command respect there was a compassionate side to him teaching me the things that Ralph had interest in such as cars among other things. The memories of these teachings in the moments remain as pleasant memorable times. I always felt welcomed in his home...even when I needed a haircut. Rest in peace, Ralph.

I remember when Michele and I took my newborn in for surgery in Miami and on the way home dropping Michele off Ralph took my daughter, held her and just showed so much love and concern, it really meant so much.
