A charitable soul, Ralph was known for his generosity, always willing to give the shirt off his back, even to strangers in need. He had a special bond with his cousins and extended family, cherishing the close relationships they shared. One of Ralph's passions in life was exploring flea markets, where he found delight in buying and selling treasures, each one carrying a unique story. On March 17, 2012, Ralph exchanged vows with the love of his life, Sherry (Godwin) Whitney, at the Hitching Post.
