What a great guy who overcame many obstacles in life but never lost that smile or being positive. I spent many good times with Ralph when he worked in the clam plant in Lewes, DE. Putting it simply he was a really wonderful guy and great to be with. Rest in peace Ralph and may God Bless your Family during this difficult time.

Pop, Thank you for loving my Mom and creating a wonderful life for the both of you. She loved you until her last breathe and was so worried about leaving you. But now she need not to worry any longer for you are with her. I know a thousand % you are happy, at peace. Life here on earth is going to be a tad bit boring without you for sure. You were the life of the party for sure. Let's just say that working for you @ B&G was a challenge but we certainly didn't let that come in between us being Family. lol You treated everyone fair. Thank you for blessing me with siblings, Ralph Jr, Denise, Eugene and Bradley and their spouses. Thank you for loving me and Gary Sr unconditionally and accepting us when you chose Mom to be your wife. I never seen my mom happier than she was with you. So Mr. rough around the edges, living life on your own terms (POP), I love you so much and will miss you so much, will miss you lighting up when I pounced into the room to see you. May you have eternal peace and happiness being reunited with your love Linda A. Kimes(MOM). Love always & Forever Michele Lynn Pepper-Allen
